Baby Has a Protein Intolerance - No Dairy

Posted by on Sep. 28, 2010 at 12:51 PM

Hello Ladies,

My daughter is just six months old and the doctors believe that she has a protein intolerance so, I have had to eliminate all dairy from my diet.  This is causing me boredom with eating so, as unhealthy as I know it is, I find myself not eating.  Has anyone else ever had this happen with their bf kids and had to eliminate dairy?  If so, do you have any good recipes that I could try?  I would love to be able to actually enjoy eating again for the health and well being of both of us.  Thank you in advance for any help, advice and/or suggestions.

 i dont know any non dairy stuff..srry..
but u really do need to eat or u could hurt ur BM (supply could drop or nutrition could lack)..u need to eat at least 1800calories a day to keep a good supply..
Studies have shown that most healthy breastfeeding women maintain an abundant milk supply while taking in 1800-2200 (or more) calories per day. Consuming less than 1500-1800 calories per day (most women should stay at the high end of this range) may put your milk supply at risk, as may a sudden drop in caloric intake. (See Can I diet while breastfeeding? for more information on calorie restriction).

If you google "dairy free living" you will find some resources.
