Quoting katxo:" I heard the same thing, red and blue dyes. I am going to look into the same thing for my son. Its hard when he goes to my mother's house, she gives him whatever he wants "
Ack. See, my Mom even said that if her oldest ate something she shouldn't have at someones house my Mom could TELL because she'd get all crazy again. I looked it up and I guess in the 70's (when my Mom had her oldest) it was first being written about this and she saw the diet in a magazine, so I'm still trying to get the details.
But my son is horrible. lol. I love the kid, but I've never dealt with a child so difficult. He screams constantly, can't sit still for anything, he headbutts me, he hits his head on stuff for no reason (just bangs his head). I can't take him anyhwere without him having meltdowns. He's 20 months and has no "real" words to communicate. He can say mama and hi, but he can't ask for anything. He doesn't pay attention to me or seem to understand me when I talk to him. It's horrid.
I figure cutting out these things are healthy even if it doesn't work, but I'm really willing to try anything. I'm so at my wits end with this kid,.
