Constipation and other symptoms

My three month old daughter has had a rough life already. Please help me understand even a little bit how to fix her problems. First of all she was born with two holes in her heart and a narrow valve to her lungs. These are summed up by very large words I cant pronounce. From the third day we came home she has had a congested nose and a lot of crying. She is colic like I was as a babay but sometimes my instincts tell me it's more than colic. Now, for the last 12 days, she has hard stool, even pointy. My mother bought a stool softener in a tablet that is placed in the anus. It helps. I stopped breastfeeding three days ago. She's been drinking isomil and breast milk up till then. We dont trust cow's milk for the first year. Her skin had very severe red spots and extended all the way around her neck and head. The doctor said it was cradle cap and gave me a prescription for cortizone 10 maximum strength. It went away but I have a feeling that when it comes back it's because of dirty things or sheets touching her face. I'm not sure. She doesn't sleep well at night. I gaive her saline solution nasal spray but nothing comes down. It helps a little. We have two birds. A finch and a cocketeil. I dont know if all this gives you a clue to something specific. I'll give you more info if you need it. All I know is that it makes me very sad to see and hear her go through this every day.She's just a baby. How can so many things go wrong. Was it something I did while in the womb? You have many othr questions to answer. A brief reply would be appreciated. Thank you very much. BettyQ

Hi, Betty Q.

Yep! You have given me a lot of questions to answer. To answer them I have to ask you to learn a lot!

First, just to help her a little and to give you a place to start:

Go to the stool witholding article on the home page and do what it says for this little tyke. Go to the constipation archives for testimonials and further understanding. Put any questions on the BB just like you did this note.

Also go to the probiotics archives and get her started on them right away

There is no possible way that either of the above can hurt her. Let us know how she is doing in a few weeks.

Next, while she is getting those benefits, to go beyond this you are going to have to learn about candida-related syndrome (C-RS) and it's relationship to the eczema she has. Read enough of the archives about those 2 subjects until you begin to understand that.

The only pay I ask is that you share her progress with the bulletin board participants so as to help save others from suffering like your daughter has.

Walt
