Milk Protein Allergy Babies – Support Group

Milk protein allergy in newborns can be really tough to deal with for families. Fussy, uncomfortable babies who may not be gaining weight well, breastfeeding mamas who have to eliminate so much out of their own diets, and lots of worry. Let’s chat here about how we can better support these families. Share your own tips on what a nursing mama can eat when she feels like there is nothing “safe” for her baby and offer support to those mamas who are formula feeding these gentle babies!

  1. I’m not in that stage anymore, but two of my three had this issue. One of them still has a dairy allergy (peanut as well) and the other outgrew all her food intolerances and has no dietary restrictions (they were both dairy, soy, egg, and wheat intolerant as infants). I would be more than happy to try to help out anyone who is going through this. It can be overwhelming, but you’re not alone!

    1. Hello, how did your baby handle vaccines?

  2. My son is dairy and soy allergic and I ate a dairy soy free diet for about 6 months when we were breastfeeding. It’s difficult but I found that it got easier once I had adjusted. We relied on Trader Joe’s a TON because they have such great allergen-free options. We made 95% of our food at home because trying to find restaurant food of any kind that was dairy & soy free was basically impossible. (Although there are a few places that were great!) We also had great luck adapting our favorite recipes to be dairy free by substituting almond milk for cow’s milk and by using coconut oil instead of butter. Pinterest was a good resource as well. I could find new recipes to try and links to blogs that had great information for dairy soy free diets.
