Warning:  Do not keep reading if you are easily grossed out.

Does anyone know why I smell like onions?!  Not just any onions--- purple onions.  All the time.  I'm seriously embarassed to be around people.  It's very strong- Daniel can notice it from a distance!!  I suppose this started 5 or 6 days ago, and it's bad.  I haven't been eating any onions at all.  In fact, I normally eat a LOT of onions and never have any problems.  But with Daniel on the raw milk diet I haven't been cooking at all, so no onion intake.  I don't understand.  Deodorant isn't helping!

I did notice that durring pregnancy I had a very notable lack of body odor.  I could sweat and sweat and I wouldn't smell at all.  Then immediately postpartum I stunk horribly for about two weeks.  Then back to normal, and now this.  I have been taking fenugreek to help with my milk supply, and so I thought it could be that.  But everything I googled said that fenugreek makes you smell like maple syrup.  I would much rather smell like yummy maple syrup than stinky nasty onions.  

Ok, other moms, let me know what's going on here!  I need your help!!

Kristin - Thanks for the video and lots of pics! Made my day!

No idea about the onion smell. Hopefully, it's not genetic (at least I hope you didn't get it from your mom's side of the family!) I can tell you that I could not take any type of garlic capsules or supplements (even the ones that said "odorless garlic") could smell garlic within a foot of me...the smell seemed to seep from every pore!

OK....if your feet start smelling, that would come from your Dad's side of the family (or at least from your Dad!) :) Love, Mom

Maybe the smell is just your hormones balancing out. It's hard work for your body to recover from pregnancy and delivery.

now I could be totally off bit I've read that sometimes your body can react in strange and smelly ways to eating foods with yeast in them (I.e. Breads). I don't know much about it but maybe try google to find out more. I love all the pics, Zeke is looking very cute!

Talk to you later!
