This is Henry’s bladder on dairy…

Due to my daughter’s sensitivity to dairy, I have been largely dairy free for the past several years.  I increased dairy during my pregnancy (cravings…) and immediately after Henry was born (colic!!!! until I quit the dairy).  It gets easier and easier to eat this way, with temptations to “cheat” coming less and less often as I am more able to see the consequences.  Yesterday, I guess the memory of my last exposure had faded…  so I made a casserole with cream of mushroom soup in it.  It was good.

Henry peed as I nursed him to sleep after dinner - that’s really strange.  He stayed dry while asleep after that, and peed in the toilet at night as usual.  When I went to sleep, I put a diaper on him and this morning, the bed was wet.  The diaper leaked!  It was on him for six hours, and was TOTALLY soaked.  This afternoon (after I ate leftover casserole for lunch) he peed and peed and peed and peed some more.   I offered the potty several times, but he didn’t use it.  It was like he couldn’t pee when he wanted to (not that he visibly tried to pee, but usually when I offer the potty and it’s been an hour since he peed last, he’ll pee there) and peed uncontrollably other times.

If you see no rhyme or reason to your child’s urination, it may worth thinking about possible food sensitivities.  Anything can be the cause of a sensitivity (my daughter is also sensitive to blueberries - it took me a LONG time to figure that one out).  But there are some more common culprits.  Dairy, wheat, corn, and citrus are biggies.  It is very scary to think about eliminating one or more of these from your diet, but it does get easier, and for me it’s worked better if I go slow.  It took me about six months to get dairy out of my diet, what with finding ways around dairy in my  my regular meals and to find alternative things to order when we go out.  The Yahoo! Group foodlab is a wonderful resource for support during this process.

Happy Pottying!

  1. Thanks for posting on this! I just gave Isabela corn for the first time this week and then we had like 3 poop misses in a row. Highly unlikely for us! I was wondering if it was due to the corn, but not sure. I’ll keep on eye out for a possible connection there.

  2. I wonder how common the diary reaction of some sort is? With my new little Jett, he was quite ‘bloggy’ at first - we’d awake at 3-4 and he was sooo snuffly! I had one of those booger-suckers and saline (and booju up the nose too) so that he could breathe well.

    Also, we wasn’t pooing every day - even several days went by, and the stinkiest toots on the planet earth - OMG! Then they were so ‘toothpastey’ and the toots were also hard work on his small belly at times.

    I then cut out dairy for a week, and it was much much better.

    He started going more often, and the breastfed ’splats’ returned.

    Since then I do have dairy, but the overload has cleared, and so long as I don’t have *too much*, he is happy as Larry. It doesn’t seem to effect his wees that I’ve really noticed yet. SO I expect it is more of an ‘overload’ issue for us.
