  1. Thank you for your replies. The reason i want to stop nursing is because I have a 2 year old, an 11 month old (who is the one nursing) and I am pregnant. And it is sort of sapping my energy. Plus, my 11 month old has bit me so hard that I have started bleeding a few times. (That never happened with my now 2 year old.) So, I'd really like to try other milks for him.
  2. Hi, my son is going to be 1 soon and I would like to wean him from nursing. Is it safe to put him onto rice milk? Does it have the necessary nutrients? He is not good at tolerating soy or milk. Any other suggestions?
  3. My son is allergic to corn. The only formula he can tolerate is teh ready to feed alumentum (the only formula without corn). Would that help?
  4. The test: why is this test better than the blood test given at the doctor?
  5. Mart, Do you think its possible to be sensitive to a food (so much so that it causes malabsorption) without any signs of malabsorption in the stool? I used to be able to tell which foods my son was sensitive to; when he ate them, he had very smelly, fatty stools. But now, he has no signs of malabsorption. Just extreme weightloss/heightloss.
  6. Hi. My son dropped from the 75% at age 6 months eto 10% at one year. He then began getting mucusy diarrhea and was tested for celiac. (Which came out positive.) We also found out he could not tolerate most other foods. After putting him on a very restricted diet, he shot up to the 50% in height after about 2 months. However, he is now back down to the 10% in height (at age 28 months.) This worries me as my husband is 6' and I am 5'7''. He is extremely active, isn't too interested in food, and burns off everything he eats. he is still on a very restricted diet and has had no signs of stomach pain or mucus in his stools. He is generally very happy. Do you think there is something else in his diet (I reintroduced soy, eggs, etc.) that could be causing this weight/height loss? Thank you for your help.
