Parenting / Re: Is paleo for baby healthy?
« on: January 21, 2014, 07:18:52 AM »
Thank you for your replies!  Long story short, during my pregnancy I had pre eclampsia symptoms, ended up having an early c-section, and due to him having extremely low blood sugar right after birth we were forced to offer formula.  After breastfeeding classes and consultants nothing worked, he wouldn't latch.  I pumped for about 3 months until my breast milk supply ran out.  Unfortunately, he's been strictly formula fed for the last 6 months. ANYWAY, we've been anxiously waiting for the day to get rid of the formula.

As far as the cereals go, he has been introduced to it but for the most part his diet is fruits and veggies, and considering he's 9 months old I don't think he'd miss it.  As long as he's not missing anything that's crucial to his development, I wanted to take it away. Is organic grass fed whole milk something that would be ok in anyone's opinion?

My husband and I recently started our paleo lifestyle (love it) and we were wondering if thats' something that's healthy for our 9 month old?  We had some concerns about whether he'll have and developmental issues without the recommended grains and wheat?  Also wondering about when its time to switch him to cow's milk at 12 months?  Sorry if its a stupid question, we're just paleo newbies and we want whats best for our little guy.  Thanks!

Thank you all for your advice! Ive been on paleo now for 10 days, and believe it or not, my blood sugar issues are about 90% better!  I did have a mango this morning and did get some symptoms.  Will I have to avoid fruit forever or is this something that over time will be fixed and I can go back to fruit?

I've been hypoglycemic for about 12 years.  I'm wanting to get rid of it completely.  I've only been doing paleo for 4 days now.  Any advice?  I know I can't fix this with sugar.  Should I give up fruit?  I've also heard of 16/8 but I don't know much about it.  Any  info and advice would be great!  Thanks

Hi!  I'm a wife and new mommy here looking for a little help from other paleo ladies!  My main goal is to lose approx 50 pounds, but more importantly, get healthy and stay healthy for my little man!  Anyone in search of the same thing, let me know!
