My Autistic Son Has Stopped Eating Meat.

My son is 3 years old and is autistic. I haven't been able to get him to eat any meat of any kind in the last three weeks. He has had some issues before with limiting his diet to certain foods but he's never given up a whole food group. He speaks mostly in echolalia and cannot communicate so he can't tell me why he won't eat meat and I can't explain to him why he needs it. He has limited his diet to bread, PB&J sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, corn, goldfish, Cheetos, pretzels, and crackers. Sometimes he'll eat plain noodles like...

Blood in Baby's Diaper

My breastfeeding two month old son has been having 'stringy' blood in his poop since yesterday morning. The Dr yesterday said she sees a very small anal fisher and that might be the cause. i just don't see how it could be coming from something so tiny. she also mentioned it could be from dairy in my diet. he's otherwise a very healthy, smiley, talkative, full term baby. Any other moms/babies experience this?

Chronic Diahrea in 20 Month Old

My daughter is 20 months old and has chronic diahrea. She has had diahrea pretty much from birth. She has had a very extensive GI workup and they say they cannot figure out what is wrong with her. One GI actually said that some toddlers have diahrea and it gets better about age 5. I had never heard of that and I think that was just an inventitive explanation. We have had her on a gluten free diet as well and still the diahrea did not stop. She was on the gluten free diet for several months. Has anyone had this problem or have ANY idea what...

Neocate or Nutramigen?

My daughter has been exclusively breastfed for six months. However, I am 8 weeks pregnant again and I am having a hard time meeting her demands. I feed her five to six times a day but at night she is just not satisfied with just me. My milk production is not what it used to be. My daughter's pediatrician said it probably isn't a good idea to take fenugreek while I am pregnant so I have to figure out how to supplement her. She usually wants an extra 4-6 ounces in the evening. Sometimes i am able to pump a little extra in the morning and give...
