Hi there!!

Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone in this! My son has that same allergy, as did my eldest daughter (so yup! Second time on this crazy diet!). In our case, we are dairy, soy free as well as eliminating anything beef or veal since they share the same allergy causing protein as milk.

:-) Don't despair! You can still eat plenty! Are you a baker? Then be sure that there is array of his to be made that fit this diet! :-) just remember to always check labels if you decide to use ready made, ready to eat or shelved products at the grocery: you'll be surprised what can contain dairy!
Here is a list of what to check for:

Skim milk powder
Casein (And rennet casein)
Evaporated milk
Sweetened condensed milk
Buttermilk
Sour cream
Cottage cheese
Butter
Butter oil, clarified butter, and ghee
Cheese
Cream cheese
‘Protein’
Milk derivatives
Modified milk ingredients
Milk solids
Lactose
Artificial butter flavor
Curds
Half and half
Hydrolysates
Lactalbumin
Lactalbumin Phosphate
Lactoglobulin
Lactulose
Nougat
Milk fat
Whey or whey powder

Oh and I saw there was a suggestion for rice milk, did you ever try almond milk? Absolutely delicious! Whether in food or to drink straight up, it's so good!! :)

Wow, thats really encouraging! yes, Im reading about alternate calcium sources and was very impressed by the amount in dark greens and almonds. I guess Ive been surprised at how soy and dairy are in virtually everything prepared (there goes bread and carckers on the most part!). Like you say though, its worth it :)

I'm doing the dairy free thing. Thankfully the internet is chock full of recipes to help you avoid what you need to avoid. I used rice milk in waffles this weekend for example and my family couldn't taste the difference. :) I know that it's hard but really worth it. As far as calcium, I take a supplement and other foods have as much or more calcium in them than dairy.

Hi! Im a EBF mom who recently (read: yesterday) had to take her 3 month old to the ER because of blood in his stool, to rule out anything serious. So it wasnt the more serious conditions causing the blood, and they suspect an allergen. I hear so many folks talk about how they eliminate this or that while breastfeeding, but read that the conditions are actually quite rare, but then there I was with the ER doctor telling me to switch my baby to formula... Thankfully our pediatrician wants to take a more conservative approach and address everything from nipple bleeding and items in my diet, and also allergy testing, before anything like that. I really want to be able to breastfeed if its not harming my baby- it was a really hard few hours thinking that I was never going to breastfeed him again. Anyway, so I am quite serious about wanting to make the changes to my diet that are necessary to help him breastfeed. The suspected culprits are milk and soy. Actually, his dad as an infant had a severe milk allergy I came to find out from my MIL- and she went dairy free and things cleared up. So, any tips on going dairy and soy free? It seems like soy and dairy are in EVERYTHING.... And I will severely miss yogurt and glasses of milk. How do you get adequate calcium? And protein? Thanks!!
