    No milk for me

    I'm so bummed. Last week, J had some bloody mucous in his bm and the ped decided he may be sensitive to dairy. So I had to eliminate all dairy from my diet for a week. The good news is that J was better instantly. The bad news is that now I can't have any dairy as long as I'm bf...which will hopefully be for another year!

    This is tough b/c I'm a big cereal-eater. And ice cream and yogurt and cheese... Basically all of my traditional snacks have been eliminated. I'm gonna try soy milk in my cereal this weekend. But I'm really gonna miss my ice cream. Any advice from those who've btdt? What should I do about calcium? (I've been taking prenatals and Tums)

    Bummer!!! I feel bad for you as I'm a big milk drinker and ice cream eater. The things we won't do for our children... Good for you for making the sacrifice for him.

    no more ice cream! oh nooo!

    I think you'll like soy milk, try Very Vanilla - its delicious. I actually prefer it to regular milk.

    you could take calcium pills in addition to the multi vitamin, there is also orange juice with calcium.

    you're a good mommy to do this! hang in there.

    Silk soy milk tastes the best-the vanilla is yummy,especially in smoothies!Tofutti ice cream and ice cream sandwiches are really good.If you top lasagna,pizza,etc. with tofutti mozzarella slices it is very tasty.The american slices make good grilled cheese!You can find these items at a health food store or Trader Joe's.Our local hf store will even special order items for us if we request.

    If you find you don't like soy milk-try rice milk.Rice Dream is a fave here.

    No,I don't work for Tofutti,I have an 8yr old with a severe dairy allergy.He takes Tums Bone Health as a supplement.

    i found this online that has a list of lots of different foods and their calcium levels....thought it might help you to find some non-dairy sources of calcium. i'm with you on LOVING milk and ice cream, and would be missing them so much if i couldn't eat or drink them!! kudos to you for making such a big sacrifice!
