Response to Hopefully I am not getting ahead of myself here
Did you do full-on Feingold, or just the preservatives and additives?
I havent made too many changes, only a few things like substituting Lays potato chips for Pringles (Lays are okay on Feingold) My son really doesnt eat too many preservatives to begin with. Im wondering if our problem is the salicylates. My son lives on apples, tomatoes, pickles, and many other salicylate-rich foods.
I did notice that yesterday, I gave him a popsicle with blue coloring and he was really hyper after that (so was my younger son). So I think those have to go....Im going to see if I can find something natural that still looks fun like the popsicle brand.
I hate being as crabby as I have been with my boys during the last week. The crabbiness stems from a deep down worry that Ill never get this behavior under control, and that its going to impact their school years.
Enough about me, this is your good news post!! I hope your happy days continue. You have inspired me to push forward. The days you describe would be a dream, for sure!!
Good work, Mama!!
