We started the strict elimination diet 8 weeks ago. After 5 weeks we reached baseline - it was incredible. He was a totally different child - calm, relaxed, focused, went straight to sleep and slept for 11 nearly 12 hours, was easy to reason with, had increased self control etc etc. Then we trialled dairy nearly 3 weeks ago......many of the behaviours returned, his sleep was instantly affected and his skin broke down in cracks and rashes. We are still trying to get back to baseline after the dairy challenge - could be weeks, months before we do. But at least I know dairy is part of the problem. We consult a dietitian regularly - one recommended by Sue Dengate. And I've read everything I can get my hands on. It makes so much sense to me now - Jacqui
