I thought we were in the clear. She made it a week longer than her sis, but at 5.5 weeks old, her diapers started raising my suspicions, and we are back to square 1.
Now, my decision is to nurse... or NOT to nurse.
I did it last time--cut dairy totally and completely from my diet. I grew to like vanilla soy milk, but NEVER vegan cheese or tofutti sour cream. I honestly don't know if I have it in my again to make it as long as I did with Ad, but I am going to try.
The problem: I LOVE milk and cheese. Love it.
What will I eat?
Lots and lots of Pei Wei.
broth based soups
Earth Balance buttery spread
A friend recently recommended the "So Delicious" coconut milk products.
Looks like Whole Foods and I will become friends again...
For my birthday, we went to Olive Garden. While it tortured my heart to forgo the cheesy entrees, I enjoyed my spaghetti, butterless bread, and cheeseless salad. My sweet mom made me a milkless cake (Duncan Hines Classic Yellow), and those cookies Addison and I made below: milkless!
I have become a reader of labels again and a shopper in the organic section of groceries...
I am going to give this a try.
Addison had totally outgrown her allergy by her first birthday. We put her straight on cow's milk. I wonder how early she outgrew it, and I am hoping that Ansley's is shortlived--even shorter.
Getting through the yummy Christmas food will be the toughest part! Wish me luck, and feel free to share any tips or tricks that you know of.
