I seem to be typing everything on this site twice, so hopefully this isn't a repeat q :0)
My 13 month old daughter has always struggled with her digestive tract. We went from 2 months of diarreah that created bloody rash to terrible constipation. I changed my entire diet while breastfeeding and have now cut out rice, apples, bananas and cheese from her diet and have her on 2% milk instead of whole so her system doesn't have to process so much fat (she is in the 90th %-ile for weight, no worries :0)). We put a pediatrition recommended laxative in her bottle 2x/week and still have to use suppositories. She drinks water and dilluted juice and is very active. She strains, truns red and sometimes cries out...it feels so defeating. I've always thought it was a reaction to dairy, but our pediatrition disagrees and doesn't want me cutting anything from her diet for fear that I'll CREATE an allergy. Has anyone else has this issue and overcome it?
