  1. I'm on day 22 of my whole 30 and noticed almost a week ago that my supply was startingto get low. I'm taking lactating supplements but still not producing like I was. My son is 6 months and hasn't started solids yet. I'm nursing on demand but having to give him a bottle of frozen breast milk once a day now. Any other nursing mamas who've experienced this and can offer some help. Thanks.
  2. encourage me, please!

    Hi! We have a 6 month old who has had some medical issues, and we are beyond exhausted caring for her. One of my friends challenged me that I need to do something for myself. I did a Whole 30 two years ago and of course felt great. When I realized that if I started my second one today, I would finish the day before my birthday, I thought that might be the best gift I can give myself in this exhausting time. I know Whole 30 is time-consuming, but I can't eat dairy, corn, or soy, so I actually eat a lot of paleo recipes and foods to begin with. In this exhausting time, I've just resorted to a lot of peanut butter (organic and just peanuts) sandwiches (whole grain bread) - but I can do better and feel better. I would really appreciate your encouragement as we are super sleep deprived already! But my motivations are - better energy for me, great birthday gift, something different to focus on!, a victory I can be in charge of (as opposed to medical issues that are a guessing game), hopefully dropping that last 5-10 pounds so I can fit into my clothes!, doing something for me, and the kind encouragement and nice people of the Whole 30 forum. Thanks for any encouragement you can provide. It's a treasure!
  3. Hi Ladies, I was hoping for some advice from anyone who has been through a similar situation to what I'm facing now. I have an 8 month old daughter and am having trouble recovering from pregnancy and her birth and thought Whole30 might help. I am on day 5 of my first Whole30, physically I feel really good and I can definitely feel that things are improving so I'm really determined to keep with the plan but mentally I'm falling apart. For the last two days I've been feeling very sad, crying a lot for no real reason and just feel like it's such an effort to get through the day. I didn't feel this way before beginning Whole30. I wondered whether anyone had any advice as to what I could do to help with this? I think it might be low blood sugar related but no matter what I eat I can't seem to shake it. I feel a little better after a meal but that doesn't last long. Thanks in advance for anyone who is able to help out.
  4. Hey Whole30-ers! This will be my second time going through a Whole30 while I continue to nurse my 12 months old baby! I would love to hear from all of the mama's out there who have been through the Whole30 a time or two for some great recipes to keep my caloric count up so I don't loose my supply! This is such a great way to loose that extra baby weight and really make a great step forward in giving my little one a healthy perspective on food. Here we go! Starting TOMORROW!
  5. Hi all! I'm currently on day 3 of my post baby Whole30 (this is my 4th Whole30 in the past year-ish...my little guy is 3 weeks old!)...I was just wondering if anyone has done a W30 with a newborn in the house and had any tips? Thanks!
  6. I've got a little one that is a reasonable eater, but not whole9 compliant at all. I'm hoping to slowly introduce her to (at least more) whole9 compliant stuff. At the moment she has milk&grains porridge and fruitmush during the day and eats a bowl of blended to mush babyfood (olvarit) at night. I've got a blender. What I need now is some guidance on portions and ratio's and of course some good recipes to start with. She eats pretty much anything we feed her at the moment, as long as it is blended well. (Anything with chuncks or a more solid feel gets judged with throwing up sounds / moves. She doesn't have teeth yet and can't chew on anything for real. She likes boiled carrots and broccoli though, but views them more as a toy than as something that should nourish her)
  7. Hello. My husband and I just started the Whole30 program this week, and I am totally confused on what to do with our kids. My almost 3 year old is acclimating well. She is loving soup, squash, roasts, broccoli, etc. But she also loves her cottage cheese and milk and cheese and so on. My 19 month old loves to eat food, and I'm not too worried about his nutrition there. But he can't have soy or dairy, and so since about 13 months he has been on almond milk or, more recently, coconut milk. My main concern was calcium and vitamin D, and I made sure he ate lots of black beans and other things like almond or coconut yogurt and fake cheese. The past few months, he has been having a lot of mucus in stools (even my daughter has) (and sorry...TMI) and this and our own issues are what has brought us to Whole30. Now that we are learning more and more, I am just wondering what on earth I am supposed to feed them to help them get their nutrition, and yet help them be healthy and not want processed food or sweets and not have GI issues.
