Hi I am a FTM and SAHM of a 4.5 month old baby boy who has lots of issues with feedings (EBF) and sleeping. He used to sleep long 1.5-2 hour long naps but as he grew older became increasingly irritable and unable to stay asleep both during the day and at night, His Pediatrician diagnosed him with silent reflux but he hasnt responded well to medications which leads me to believe there must be a different underlying cause. We finally visted a pediatric GI who suggested I stop eating all forms (including hidden) of milk and soy but I believe the problem might be deeper than that so I have taken it upon myself to do a total elimination diet. This however is SO restrictive that I fear my milk supply will drastically drop. I will only eat turkey/lamb, gluten free oats, white and brown rice, yellow zucchini, winter squashes, sweet potato, potato, and pears for 2 weeks before adding in the least allergenic foods (one every 4 days). I discussed this with my lactation consultant who tried hard to convince me that its very unlikely that my baby is allergic to many foods but my motherly instinct is telling me this is necessary. I need to know if any mamas out there have tried this and if they can just lend me support....my baby cries most of the day and sleeps terribly at night, sometimes waking up as often as 45 minutes and its NOT an issue of sleep associations...he wakes up in discomfort and some nights are better than others which leads me to believe its directly related to what i ate that day. Has anyone had success with a TED? Has anyone seen a change in fussiness/crying/feeding/sleeping by changing their diets? I need to know there is hope out there because this constant crying and lack of sleep (for both of us) has got me at my wits end. I just want me little guy to feel good and be happy...he always looks so frsutrated and unhappy...I'd appreciate any advice from any mamas who have tried special diets to make BF work...I REALLY don't want to give him formula!!!
