My partner has severe eczema and I have severe hayfever. Our breastfed six month old little girl has been progressively sleeping worse and worse, some nights she was unable to sleep longer than 20 minutes at a time. She was just so restless I could not figure out what the issue was. We tried a gentle sleep program, and her settling got easier but she was not sleeping any better. When I suspected a food related issue my maternal health nurse suggested a dairy intolerance but I had a gut feeling this wasn't right. I had distinct memories of particularly bad nights after consuming tomato based dishes, sticky date pudding and apple and raspberry juice.
 
After some investigation I came across your website and it all made sense. I cut down my salicylate intake and that night she slept ten hours without any wakings. Since then she has had really good nights, nothing like the 15-20 wakings we were getting previously. Within a week of coming across your website our lives have improved vastly. I am now intending to see a paediatric allergist/dietician from your list for help determining exactly what I should be avoiding and to help create a plan to reintroduce these later down the track. Thank you for all the amazing information - Kylie
