More hidden soy
The book I was reading is "Imaginative realism" by James Gurney and he did a painting of all the things "wonderful" soybeans are used for - and low and behold there was a box of Gerber Baby Rice in the picture. Sure enough, a quick check to the ingredients list confirmed the presence of soy. I had been so focused on my diet I didn't think about what I was putting into her - though you would think the box would clearly list soy as a potential allergen. So now I've eliminated probiotics from our diet (they have milk protein), DHA supplements (they have soy), and her baby rice cereal. Things haven't been getting much better despite our completely dairy and soy free diet. Her 6 month check up is coming soon, so maybe the doctor will have some new insight (though I doubt it).
