IMGP8651Dairy products are on my dislike list. They give Baby Brother the worst stomach ache and cause a spit up fest that you would not believe.
That is the face of a dairy sensitive baby…
I do not like to see my kiddos in any discomfort, especially when I am the cause.
Turns out, when you have a breastfeeding baby who cannot handle dairy, it is not as simple as avoiding a bowl of ice cream or a glass of milk. I have become a label reader.
If it says “contains milk” I cannot eat it or Baby Brother will be miserable. I never realized how much stuff “contains milk.” It’s in everything!
But it isn’t even that simple…
I learned at The Fussy Baby Site, that milk has a few aliases…
Like “casein” or “hydrolysates.” Sneaky little bugger! How was I to know that those are just two of the Super Secret Ninja names for Dairy!?!
Learning all the codes names for dairy was not the depressing part…The depressing part was learning ALL the things that are Dairy carriers and all the things that I cannot eat…
Needless to say, this Mama is on a new adventure. I am learning about dairy free products and exploring dairy free recipes. It is going to be a long road but I will get it and hopefully be cleaning up a little less spit up and soothing fewer upset baby tummies.
