My Son was highly allergic to milk proteins when he was a young baby(all of them this kid was still breaking out in hives and swelling up every time i'd nurse him with me living on plain rice and water). So we had him an Alumentum for six months of his live so I knew exactly what was in everything he was eating. He did not get any solids without me analyzing him for a reaction for weeks. I seriously have it written down every diaper after a new food every cry,every rash, everything got recorded in my writing if it was after something new or if it just seemed off. Yes I was anal about it I will admit that but after our bout with nursing it just scared me.
We did discover that at about eight months that his tummy seemed to be fine with milk proteins but that he is still very lactose intolerant.
We're getting to that age where WIC wants us to switch him to whole milk lactaid or goats milk in July and I'm scared to death of it. I'm still scared of milk in general for him,his Father had to be the one to find out that he was fine with it as long as it didn't have lactose because I was too scared to let him anywhere near milk in any form.
If your kids had issues were you this scared of switching? Was there anything that helped make it easier for you?
