does anyone else have a child with a juice/fruit allergy? help please!

I have a 16 month old son and every time he drinks ANY juice (even diluted down to mostly water) he breaks out in the most horrible diaper rash with open sores on his poor little bottom. I've noticed he does this with most fruits also aside from applesauce and peaches. His pediatrician said something about the acid in his poop (LOL sorry i don't know how to explain it) problem is I don't know what else to give him to drink. Currently he's drinking 2% milk and that's the only thing. He refuses to drink water and I'm concerned as to what to give him to drink during the hot summer months to come. Any ideas/advice is appreciated! ♥ Lisa

Dear Lisa,

  I have allergies to fruit, due to high yeast in my body due to chronic illness I have and am working on, I could not have sugar in any foarm as a child either due to chronic illness and Lupus (i dont have the lupus anymore yeah!), I use Stevia and Xylitol both wonderful all natural sweeteners that do not mess up with the glycemic index. for instece I can purchase stevia droppers naturally flavored such as root beer vanilla, raseberry and so forth and you can flavor his water with those. and when he gets older you can purchase Zevia all natural sodas or Virgils diet sodas sweetened with xylitola and stevia. I know how it is water gets borning fast andI can even have dairy so if you flavor his water alittle i think it would help him drink it as well for water is one of the best liquids he could have! and remember you can also take some club soda or shelzer water and kinda make your own bubbly drink (pherhaps when he is older since he is 16 months). Hope this helps and best wishes!!

Sleepy time tea has valerian which is not recommended for children, I wouldn't give it to him.

Try iced Sleepy Time tea by Celestial Seasonings.  Make it per the instructions hot, stir in a good dollop of honey then pour it over ice, slap it in a sippy cup and pass it onto the tot.  This will also help soothe his tummy.  It's a sweet, minty tea.


There is no reason not to give him any herbal teas that don't contain any funky herbs like valerian.
