kalechip Posted October 28, 2012 Share Posted October 28, 2012 I am new to this forum, seeking help and support for issues with my three year old. We are on Day 7, and things are not going well. I wanted to do a whole 30 because I have Celiac disease and autoimmune thyroid issues. I am trying the AI suggestions (no egg, nuts, etc). I`m having my son do this with me since he has never had a solidly formed poop (sorry to be graphic - his are all these big mush piles) and he tends towards whininess and meltdowns often. He had IgG allergy testing about a year ago that indicated issues with LOTS of foods, including nuts, soy, egg. We have experimented with elimination diets before, but generally only last days to a couple weeks before falling off the wagon completely. I also have a 9 month old, so life with an infant has been part of the issue in actually committing. My husband is supportive, but has basically said this Whole 30 is the last thing we`re trying, and if it fails, we will be gluten free but no other restrictions. Anyways...as of Day 7 my son is a MESS!!! Still poor BMs, whiny, argumentative, meltdowns over everything! He seems exhausted too and just overwhelmed. He is not a big fan of meat, so there have been issues with getting him eating enough of it, but he eats sweet potato or squash with almost every meal, both of which he loves. One compromise I have made is to give him white rice cooked in bone broth (the only way to get bone broth into him). We eat 3 meals and a couple snacks a day. I know that it can take time, but I feel horrible - not only are my days awful dealing with constant tantrums and fighting, but I feel like maybe this just isn`t working for him and I`m putting him through this for nothing. And everywhere we go other kids are stuffing themselves with processed junk and he's watching this and wondering why his mother is so insane... Is Day 7 too soon to tell? Should I stick with this? Or throw in the towel? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
