He loves fruit, lots of it...bananas, strawberries, grapes, cherries etc. he loves bread/jacket potatoes/meat/veggies/eggs etc.
Before bed he has milk. He has his tea about 5pm and itsa combination of the stuff listed above. I make everything from scratch.
The only time i can see food in it is if he has eaten sweetcorn. Smells normal. No red ring around his bottom.
I havnt tried cutting out food, might try that.
he has a bath every 3 days or so. Nothing goes in the bath...occasionally oilatum as he has that on prescription but only probably once every couple of weeks.
He sleeps in his cot, Mattress was replaced when he was born. All bedding/towels are washed at 60c in fairy non bio...same as always...nappies are washed in the same. Line dried. tumble if im desperate but very rarely.
We have tried green baby nappy balm, sudocrem, metainium, zinc and castor oil. We have also tried with/without fleece/minkee liners too..
I feel like such an awkward so and so really
Eleanor, hubby is of the same thinking realy and would prefer i just put him into disps at night, its coming close, i just feel like sorting out his night nappies is becoming a full time occupation atm.
Given that he already has allergies, I really think it's worth finding out if any other foods are causing a problem.
What kind of milk? Soya or something else? Remember soya is in almost everything including bread.
From what you've said the other most likely culprits are bananas, strawberries, egg and wheat/gluten.
I would try cutting these out first and cutting down on soya as much as you can. Soya really isn't very good for you. Asians only eat very small amounts of fermented soya (tofu, soy sauce) and they don't give it to small children.
You would expect to see some difference within a week. Make sure you keep a food diary and check for hidden wheat/soya in everything.
Somebody asked if it was food whether you'd expect to see a rash somewhere else. Not necessarily. A reaction can be days or even a week after the food is eaten and in babies the rash very often appears on either their face on their bottom.
Fairy causes a lot of people problems (both the perfume and with build up) but washing detergent is a very personal choice. However, you need to wash bedding above 60ºC to kill mites.
