Bye bye dairy

Let us have a moment of silence as we mourn the passing of dairy from my diet at least for the next few days. No more cream in my coffee (which probably means no more coffee if this morning is any indication). No more yogurt. No mor cookies or coffee cake or buttered bread. No more pizza (aaagh) But if it helps him sleep better and be less rumbly tummy it will be worth it. My food diary has lead me to suspect milk and yogurt as the main culprits but as dairy is a daily part of my diet it would explain the ongoing gas and greenish poop issues. So would gluten so if the no dairy thing doesn't work that's my next try. It will certainly be challenging! Fortunately real simple just did an issue that lists a bunch of healthy snacks many of which don't have dairy in them so I'm headed to the store today to pick up some to try and keep my mind off of cheese and cookies. :)

Last night was brutal - William was unable to sleep for more than 30-45 minutes unless he was held. His pooping and gas kept waking him up. He wanted to nurse constantly (which blows my oversupply theory ) and was just miserable. My poor baby!

Hi, im nisa.. sorry to bother you.. fyi, i had a same case where my little baby 3mo had few times of bloody stool. For last 5days she was admitted and doc mentioned abt dysentry, anal fissure, imflammation etc. I hope she'll be fine one day. Just curious whether now your baby condition is better?

Giving up milk totally worked and he's now doing great. And he can handle dairy, so he out grew the intolerance after about year 2. Good luck with your baby!
