Doesn’t cheese make everything taste sooooooo good? I love queso dip at Mexican restaurants. I enjoy cheese pizza. When I make spaghetti I like to sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top. How good is a cold cut sandwich without cheese on it?? So how am I going to make it with no dairy in my life?? With ease. 🙂
I’m deciding to go dairy free because I noticed my daughter’s face breaking out a little. Nothing major. Just a few little bumps. I breastfed my son and I’m doing the same with my daughter. When breastfeeding my son he broke out around his mouth, chin, back and belly. His pediatrician suggested that I go without dairy for a while. I did and sure enough, the breakouts stopped. Also discovered that me eating bananas was breaking him out. (That’s another story)
I plan to start May 1. I’m hoping that my daughter isn’t allergic to dairy like her brother. I’m not allergic to anything but my husband is allergic to milk and peanuts so I decided to be cautious with those two things with our kids in case they are allergic as well. Doctors have said that kids can’t get tested for allergies until three years old. I’m sure we will get both of the kids tested when we can.
Going dairy free won’t be hard for me because I already do a good bit of dairy free cooking because of Bryce. I make dairy free pancakes and baked fried chicken. I use Egg Replacement for baking. I plan to purchase So Delicious dairy free almond milk yogurt do get my active cultures. I eat yogurt every morning for breakfast. I WON’T be purchasing the dairy free cheese. It IS NOT good to me. I’ll be just fine without any type of cheese. I plan to be dairy free for at least 6 months and at most a year and a half. I’ll breastfeed Brynn until she is 1 1/2. At 6 or 7 months I’ll start her on some solids.
Regardless if she is allergic to dairy or not, me without dairy will be good for my health. Have any other moms gone dairy free because of breastfeeding? If so why?
