Our expert says:
I can understand that you must be feeling very tired if you never get enough sleep. It is possible that the fibre is causing the bloating and cramps. This is an unfortunate side-effect of a high-fibre diet which also often affects adults. Now that her constipation is better, you can perhaps reduce the amount of fibre she eats to a level that still promotes bowel function, but does not give her wind and cramps. I would also take her to another Paediatrician for a second opinion and specifically mention her allergic reactions to medications and the Purity beef meal, then ask if she is old enough for allergy testing, because it is very possible that some of her symptoms may be due to an allergic reaction to a food or foods. Just because no one else in the family is allergic does not preclude your daughter from being sensitive or allergic. I would cut out all foods that cause reactions (keep a little food diary for her noting down what she eats and how she reacts). Start off with rice porridge and home-cooked baby meals (boiled vegies and meats that you puree and fruits like mashed banana and grated apple) and then gradually introduce other foods, noting her reaction in each case.
I sincerely hope that your lassie settles down and that you manage to get more sleep.
