DS is CMPI. He's just turned one and until now I've been dairy free too as have been BF him. I really want to stop BF him now (and eat cheese and chocolate again) and was wondering what milk alternative to give him. He's had some almond milk enriched with vit D and calcium and seems to like that. Is there any reason why he shouldn't drink that before bed and on his cereal in the morning? Am asking on here as my DR is a bit vague.
Hi Melonribena, I haven't tried for a few months but when I did try soya he reacted in the same way (uncomfy tummy, crying and smelly green poo) as to milk. I think the protein is meant to be very similar.
Also, have u tried a bit of cheese or chocolate recently to see if it has an effect on your ds? I've given up milk on cereal and in tea etc but still have cheese on pizza etc and small amounts of chocolate. My ds has had no problems with this at all.
Thanks! I've had the odd bit of chocolate and he does seem to be OK with it so yes, maybe I can relax a little (although I do want to give up BF now anyway. I just want to find a healthy alternative for him ).
