I do remember that she did have some, but not much, blood in her stool until I got dairy out of my system, which took a month. You might want to take her to a pediatric allergist. #1 didn't test allergic to anything, but they still had lots of advice for food sensitivities.

I made an appt with the GI but its not until the ernd of march. They did say i could sneak her in sooner if it got horible. She has really had the bloody stools often its really worrying me . I wanted to do one allergn at a time so i could be sure thats the problem but i think I'm going to try soy too. I'm keeping a food log too.

Re: B2B - Back to Basics "Why are these pink?!" Tuesday

Morning! It is supposed to be 60 here today!!! I'm going to try to get showered in a bit and head out of the house for the day.

Heidi - I had a new wool soaker bleed onto a diaper when Levi peed. I wasn't that concerned about it, and after several regular washes (and being dried) it was still there. But when I did my last diaper stripping, a 1-2 hour soak w/ 6 scoops of oxiclean and then a wash w/ tide and bleach it came out.

Kari - I hope it's just something she ate and noone else gets sick!!!

Heidi, I don't know what to do about your pink diapers. I'd second an oxyclean soak.

I woke to the High Priestess of the Order of the Snuggy:


Obviously she's thrilled. My kids are so weird. I guess they get it from me!

I crack up every time I see those Snuggie commercials because they look like some crazy cult lol.

Heidi I hope you get the pink all out!

Kari: Hope your kiddos feel better/sleep soon and you get some rest. We are dealing with something over here as well. J was perfectly fine yesterday morning, then all of a sudden gets a temperature and pukes! He's had a temp all night and is still feverish today but no more vomiting thank goodness! Then C woke up at 6am (she usually wakes up to nurse and goes back to sleep til 8-9am) and refused to go back to sleep and started chitchatting away and woke up J!

Michelle: hope you can figure out what Maya's sensitivity is!

Cheryl: How cute is your High Priestess of the Order of the Snuggy!

WOTA: try to survive the day! DH has school tonight so I will be alone with both kiddos. I am beyond exhausted but hey, I'm a mommy so that means I'm superwoman right? LOL!

WOTB: pink pf, pink cover, pink snappi

I was just going to start a thread - Traumatic Tuesday. I'm not ususally up at this hour. But dd1 has thrown up twice, ds1 is up because he's having bad dreams, dh is wiped out still, ds2 decided he needed to nurse since everyone was awake, and dd2 didn't go to sleep until almost 10pm last night. I'm going to be a walking zombie tomorrow!
I'm sorry your kids are all so sick.

I also wanted to add, before anyone suggests them, that I can't get RIT or "color grabbers" or any of those fancy things here. I could order them, but in the week or two it would take them to get here I could probably just learn to deal with pink diapers. So what I have access to includes white vinegar, bleach (liquid nonchlorine, regular chlorine, and OxiClean), a little bit of Borax, baking soda, and detergent (Tide, Simply Clean, and Arm & Hammer F&C). That's about it. I just checked them after their run through with Tide and OxiClean, and no change. I think next I'll try doing a presoak with 1/2 c. Borax, then wash with another 1/2 c. Borax and some Tide or A&H.

Oh, and it's all cotton (pfs and flats) except for one hemp flat, so no elastic or PUL or anything to worry about ruining.
Oh that stinks. I hope you can get the pink out.

Nothing much going on here today. It's been rainy and miserable.

WOTA: finish ironing dh's work clothes for the week. make a craft of sorts with DS

WOTB: pinned ub GMD flat under a white thirsties cover

Cute snuggy Cheryl!

SS to hear about all the food issues. I couldn't have milk growing up because of the abx I was on for the urinary reflux. The drs tried to tell me I was allergic to milk - but I think it was the reaction with the abx. I remember having to eliminate all sorts of foods from my diet and then slowly adding them back in.

Dd1 has gotten sick a couple more times this morning. Ds1 seems just fine and so does dd2. However, dh is lying on the couch moaning.

We are getting a whole house humidifier installed today! I think that's part of my sinus problem. I'm also planning on running by the po today to mail out the last of my diapers. I need to run by Hobby Lobby and look for some yummy bamboo yarn for a ballet sweater I'm having knit for dd1.
