Dairy-free living

It has been 3 months now since I’ve been dairy-free. My infant son has a cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) and because I am committed to nursing him, I have cut all dairy out of my diet. It was hard at first, but I can say that my cravings have significantly subsided now. That’s pretty amazing since I was a huge dairy consumer — milk, cottage cheese, cream cheese, yogurt, and hard cheeses. Yes, cheese has been the most difficult item to go without. There’s just no substitute close to smoked gouda. Mmm. At any rate, I wanted to share some dairy-free resource for anyone else who might be in the same boat. I hope you find them useful. I also plagodairyfreen to share dairy-free recipes this month. Stay tuned.

    My 14 month old had he same allergy, and I also gave up all dairy. It was tough, as some foods just can’t be recreated without dairy. Another good blog is milkallergymom.blogspot.com

    Hopefully your little one will outgrow it. My little guy has been enjoying yogurt & cheese for about 2 months, and I’m happy to have cheese back in my own diet as well.

    I have the same allergy as your son. I have often worried if I were to have kids, how my inability to eat milk would effect a newborn. If you don’t mind my asking, how do you make sure that your son gets the calcium and other nutrition that he would otherwise get from dairy products?
