Please read, before reading

I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.

Baking Soda Worked for Us

It happened to us and I'm sure it has happen or will happen to you, too.  We didn't read a label and fed something we thought was safe to our daughter.  It read "Made in a facility with nuts..."  Oh, no.  We hoped there wouldn't be a reaction, but she had a messy, messy diaper shortly after eating.  And it took her little tummy about a week to get back to normal -- she was getting over a cold at the same time, too.

I worked as hard as I could to get as much fiber in her as possible: beans, cereal, craisins, raisins, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc.  But what also seemed to help was sprinkling in a little baking soda in her water.  She doesn't like juice, but she drank the baking soda water.  It is an antacid, and I think it's much safer than feeding a toddler "medicine." Just a suggestion to anyone who has a little one with tummy problems.
