Interesting result when wheat/gluten was dropped - poo related
« on: January 26, 2012, 08:52:31 PM »
A friends baby was doing poo like 5-6 times a day, and would get a horrible rash if not changed immediately (less than 5 min). Even if changed immediately the little girl would often still get a rash.

They decided to try dropping all gluten (still has dairy) and the change was immediate. No more rash, poo maybe twice a day, and normal solid stuff.

I had a similar experience with my twins recently. I feed them raw milk, which they love and thrive on. But right around the holidays, the main dairy that produces it in California was quarantined for a E coli scare (turned out not to be from them) and the supply dried up. So we tried giving them pasteurized organic milk. What a mistake! They pooped constantly and would instantly get painful, red diaper rash. They were screaming in pain. It was horrible.

I committed to finding raw milk for them come hell or high water. There was one other producer up in Northern California, who was obviously overwhelmed, and rationing out milk to their dealers (of which there were few in So Cal). So I'd stalk the delivery van, call stores for delivery times, stand in line after line for hours at a time to get two quarts of raw milk (at $8.00 a quart!) and I kept doing that for weeks until the quarantine was lifted on my regular dairy. What a nightmare. But as soon as we went back to raw milk, all the problems went away.

Factory food is crap. The two remaining dairies in California that produce raw milk are under constant assault from the mainstream dairy industry and the government. Neither will be happy until raw milk is banned for good, like it is in many other States. And then even more people, including children, will suffer. It's amazing what the "experts" and "authorities" want us to believe is wholesome food. Disgusting.

Here in Ohio it's illegal to sell it but not to buy it. So my farmer has you buy a herdshare so that you are drinking the milk from "your" cow hence it's legal. You are basically paying room and board for the cow!

Herdshare programs in California are a political minefield and are under constant scrutiny and assault from the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). At any moment the money you have invested in a program could become worthless when the CDFA swoops in with a cease and desist letter, which happens all the time. Unfortunately, in California, the herdshare concept just isn't a reliable alternative right now.

I'm curious as to why you fed them milk from another animal.  Were they finished breast feeding at this point? If they were wouldn't they be eat foods then?  Just curious, never had a kid before and know nothing. But saw this section and started wondering what would be a good regimen for a baby.

They are twins and from the very beginning my wife wasn't producing enough to feed both of them, a problem common in women with multiples. In primitive times, the weaker one surely would have died from starvation. But from day one, while we were still in the hospital, they were put on a breast milk/formula regimen. Then when I found out what was actually in commercial formula, I about shit. They still needed to eat, and there wasn't enough human breast milk to go around, so I found what I believe to be the closest thing, which was developed by the Weston A. Price foundation. We used raw cow's milk as the basis for this formula.

They are doing wonderfully now at 20 months, and just about weaned off the milk. They are both super healthy, strong, and happy boys as long as we don't feed them any processed crap milk. Never again.

After weaning them off milk, what will you feed them?  Is that when you start feeding them whole foods?  Or baby food?  I'm sure, like every other "healthy" diet that is widely promoted, the processed, jarred, baby food is shit.  What are the naturals foods considered paleo for babies weaned off milk?

if they are old enough to be weaned off milk, they should be old enough to eat table food, depending on the ability of the child. :) You don't have to do jarred baby foods, or even pureed foods.  Some people like to do what's called Baby-Led-Weaning, which lets baby take the lead on what he/she wants to eat.  Most babies are on solid food by the time they hit 12 months.  When they wean off milk, they just eat more food. :)

How old was the baby?
