Cows Milk Protein Intolerance - reintroducing dairy, help!

Help! I am feeling so lost after an appointment with my son's new consultant who said that it was time to start reintroducing dairy but gave us little information about how. Please please could anyone with experience of reintroducing dairy after intolerance tell me how they did it, timescales and how it went. DS is also gluten, egg and soy free. It isn't a dairy allergy or lactose intolerance.

Help me Mumsnetters!

The advice we were given (DD is/was CMP intolerant / allergic - noone ever quite made up their mind) by our COnsultant and the Dietician was to start with small amounts of butter baked in stuff; because butter has very little of the protein of cow's milk in it. Then progress to butter on bread, etc. When that is tolerated for a week, try small amounts of hard cheese baked into stuff (Parmesan is apparently one of the lowest for the protein). Then hard cheese on it's own. Then try things with milk in them but where milk isn't the primary ingredient - so cakes, biscuits, etc - then work your way up to small amounts of milk or yoghurt mixed in with his usual milk or yoghurt.

Good luck. DD is just about to turn 2 and is now fine with butter, hard cheese and baked stuff, and we are just trialling milk and yoghurt. Tried it 6 months ago and it wasn't ok (she gets blood in her poo) but this time, so far, she seems to be tolerating it fine.

Hope that helps smile

Hi Casserole,

Thank you so much for posting. It is great to get an idea of the order of reintroduction of dairy products. We were just told to start with well baked milk, butter or cheese but I have no idea on how long we should wait before upping the amounts, which one first etc. How long were you told to wait at each step?

I am looking forward to baking some Parmesan biscuits for when we get to that stage, yum! They go in the oven for 12 minutes at 200, does that count as baked or is it too little?

We were told to wait for a week at each stage, but as DD's symptoms generally took longer than that to become evident, I tended to wait 2-3 weeks before progressing. I don't know about the oven timings, sorry - hopefully someone else will!

Hi V 12 mins at 200 is fine, I was told by dietician that 10 mins was enough. I'm about to try reintroduction too. Nerve wracking! Doing wheat now, fingers crossed that works. Good luck!

Coming a bit late to this thread, but am in the same situation with my DS, nearly 2, shortly to reintroduce dairy. How are you getting on OP?
