GFCF (Gluten Free/casein Free) (Wheat Free/dairy Free) Diet Tips

Hi All: I am reading through info on putting my son on the GF/CF diets and am looking for a good place to purchase products. I have been in Trader Joe's and Wild Oats and although Trader Joe's has better pricing they dont have much variety. For a box of casein free chicken nuggets it's 6.99 at Wild Oats. I have bought him rice milk, the special cereals, bars and a few cookies and it was over $70!!! Anyone have any tips, tricks, etc. to save a litte money on this diet? Thanks

Reduced Milk Supply

When my daughter started eating cereal three times a day (at about 5 months) she started nursing mainly right before bed and at 5 am. She might nurse for 5 -10 minutes about 1/2 hour after eating cereal just for a snack, to make sure she's getting the nutrients she needs, and to help calm her down for a nap. My problem is that because of this reduced nursing my milk supply has reduced dramatically to the point where if I pump I only get 1/2 oz at a time. I would like to mix her cereal with breast milk and also since I work full time...

Suggestion for Infant Formula That Creates Less Gas

Hello: I am hoping that one of you might be able to point me in the right direction. I am looking for a formula that creates less gas for my 2 week old son. We are currently using Enfamil lipil with iron, but it seems to create quite a bit of gas for him and it is so hard for me to watch him in such pain. Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, A.

Rabbit Eating My Plants

I discovered I have at least one rabbit eating all of my flowers and plants in my front landscaping. It's very unfortunate because it has feasted significantly and it looks like I've lost a lot of what would bloom. I'm not great with plants or flowers, but like the way they look! How do I get rid of this rabbit so I can save what remains? It has eaten daisies, zinnias, phlox, hyndrangea, and I'm not sure what else. Any suggestions?

My Newborn Is Awake a Lot!

My baby is 6 weeks old and seems to be awake more than he should. He was awake last night from 7-12:45am and also awake yesterday from 10am-1pm. When he is awake, he is fussy but not a lot, he is just very alert and looking around when he is awake. I feel that maybe he is awake more than he should be? Also, I need help on ways to relieve gas other than the drops and pulling his feet towards his chest.

Diabetic Birthday Cake

Hi everyone. We are celebrating my oldest daughter's birthday this weekend with my husband's side of the family. My SIL was just diagnosed with Type II Diabetes, her partner probably would be diagnosed but doesn't believe in western medicine and my adult niece is a great candidate. I believe I am also a good candidate not because of my weight and eating practices, but because of where I gain weight and I'm looking out for my future. Along with this, I know that a diabetic diet is good for everyone, anyway. I'd like to make a cake that...

Meijer or Kroger

Has anyone compared prices at Meijer and Kroger? I can't tell which one has the lowest prices. It seems to me that maybe groceries are lower at Kroger while produce is lower at Meijer. There is no doubt that deli meats are lower at Meijer. I would rather shop at Kroger as it is less crowded and crazy, but not if I end up spending more. What have you all find to be best?

Help with Food Allergies

We just found out our daughter is lactose intolerant, allergic to dairy and peanuts. She is 16 months old. Does anyone know brands of food that don't have any of these in them ? I'm reading labels but it would be nice to know if anyone has short cuts to this process. I'll also be meeting with a nutritionist this week. My daughter is under weight so pulling all dairy is a concern for us due to her size. She has been on rice milk and will continue to be. Any suggestions appreciateed.

Lunch Ideas for a Picky Eater

I need ideas for my daughter's lunch at school. She is 6 and in first grade. The only veggies she likes are mashed potatoes, lettuce, and carrot sticks. She won't eat lunch meat or tuna. She won't eat anything cold that is supposed to be hot, like pizza or hot dogs. There is no microwave available, and I can't send anything with peanut butter (school rule). I have been sending her with either a cheese pizza lunch kit (which is really unhealthy and she doesn't really like them cold) or a bagel with cream cheese. I add fresh fruit,...

Help, Trying to Wean to Sippy Cup with Soy Milk

My one year old daughter is allergic to milk, and we have been trying to wean her on soy milk for a month. She will take juice and water out of a sippy cup but not milk or formula. We have been gradually doing it, for the last two weeks I have been doing 2 oz formula with 4 oz soy milk. She will take it out of the bottle, then I tried to do just soymilk and she will not drink it out of the sippy cup or bottle. I first started with the unsweetend Silk then recently moved to the plain Silk brand. I think she associates the cup with water or...

Vitamins While Breastfeeding

Just wondering what other people are doing. While breastfeeding, do you just take a regular multivitamin or do you still take the prenatal vitamins? I know the prenatal ones have a lot more folic acid and iron than regular ones, but do you really need that much folic acid once the baby is born (especially since I already get tons of folic acid from my diet since I'm a vegetarian).
