What I Ate While Eliminating Dairy, Gluten, Egg, Nut & Soy

As some of you may be aware, my newborn, Jordyn, was extremely fussy and uncomfortable for about the first 8 weeks of her life. After several visits to her pediatrician and lots of my own research I still couldn’t figure out what was bothering her. She was screaming most of the day every day and it was heartbreaking to watch. I finally decided to take her to a GI specialist (gastrointestinal doctor). Since Jordyn was and is still exclusively breastfed, he recommended that I cut out some top allergens for a two week period. The foods that I completely removed from my diet for two weeks were dairy, wheat, eggs, nuts and soy. I didn’t think it was going to be easy, but found it to be simpler than I thought. After all that I truly don’t think any of those foods were bothering here and she kind of just ‘snapped out’ of her crying fits at around 9 weeks old. Anyway, many of you wanted to know what the heck I found to eat while cutting out dairy, wheat, eggs, nuts and soy since it seems many of you have allergies or intolerances to one or more of these.
