As some of you may be aware, my newborn, Jordyn, was extremely fussy and uncomfortable for about the first 8 weeks of her life. After several visits to her pediatrician and lots of my own research I still couldn’t figure out what was bothering her. She was screaming most of the day every day and it was heartbreaking to watch. I finally decided to take her to a GI specialist (gastrointestinal doctor). Since Jordyn was and is still exclusively breastfed, he recommended that I cut out some top allergens for a two week period. The foods that I completely removed from my diet for two weeks were dairy, wheat, eggs, nuts and soy. I didn’t think it was going to be easy, but found it to be simpler than I thought. After all that I truly don’t think any of those foods were bothering here and she kind of just ‘snapped out’ of her crying fits at around 9 weeks old. Anyway, many of you wanted to know what the heck I found to eat while cutting out dairy, wheat, eggs, nuts and soy since it seems many of you have allergies or intolerances to one or more of these.

  1. I just wanted to point out for any of your followers who cut out the foods you mentioned in an attempt to determine any food allergies that coconut mimics several tree nuts. Therefore it should be eliminated as well until tree nuts are found NOT to be an allergy. I discovered this the hard way and hope to save others from the problems I suffered.

    I’m glad your daughter is doing well.
