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.

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.

Fun with Pooping and Prune Juice

My one year old son has had a hard time pooping lately. It is awful to watch, he squats and then screams like it REALLY hurts to go and his poop is really hard. We just finished formula a few weeks ago and he is now on whole milk. He gets a lot of fruit and meat and wheat bread in his diet, but I'm wondering if he needs more fiber? We gave him a few ounces of prune juice this morning to see if that helps, but I'm not sure how much and how often to give it to him. I'm desperate to relieve the poop pains -- I really think it hurts when...

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,...

16 Month Old Still on Bottle

I know, many of you may say I am a bad mom, but I put oatmeal and baby food in my son's milk. He is 16 months old and still HAS to have 7oz Milk, 1 jar 2nd Baby food and 3 teaspoons of oatmeal in a bottle before bed and IF he wakes up in the middle of the night and first thing in the morning. I've tried putting it in a sippy cup, but he'll only take it out of the bottle. He will take a sippy cup the rest of the day and is very proficient in feeding himself everything else. I REALLY want to get him off the bottles completely. Do any of you...
