View Full Version : new to dairy intolerance
DS has been having lots of trouble lately with :barf: which he never ever has had b4 and he has stopped taking all of his bottle and trouble sleeping at night.
So i saw the MCHN yesterday and she has suggested switching to soy formula and cutting dairy from his diet.
So I have done so but i'm wondering what do i use for butter in my cooking for him?? Do i use the nuttelex and is thickner in baby foods a milk thing anything else i wouldn't have thought about please let me know :confused:
Firstly let me say you seem to be coping with the news very well. some people when they hear that their child is intolerant or allergic to milk they freak.
The best butter/marg to use is the nuttelex and honestly i can't taste the difference and neither can any of the kids who eat fairy bread at my kids parties. but having said that there is a Lactose free Meadow Lea which is for dairy intolerance and another brand which is in a purple tub (name eludes me at the moment) and says Dairy free on it.
i also find using rice milk in cakes and biscuits makes them a little sweeter than normal milk. and using coconut milk/cream in cooking.
as for thickner yes it is a whey (milk) base. i don't know what to use instead for that one sorry.
thanks i think that the only reason i'm doing so well is cause i dont really do dairy myself. I use the nuttelex myself i love it though i do use the fat free one so i'll get Lochie the full fat one.
Thanks for the rice milk and coconut milk/cream idea, i wouldnt have thought about that. can carnation milk also be used?
once changing to soy formula did your bubs poo's change?
sorry if a little tmi but i was wondering cause Lochie's have and so i dont know if this means his having a prob with the soy or if this is normal
My dd is lactose intolerant.
I use to use Karicare delact for her and had no problems with it.
She is now on goats milk. I use it to make her custards and in all of her cooking. I don't think you can taste the difference at all.
It is hard at first but their are alot of substitute products around now which makes life alot easier.:yelclap:
All the best.
Just want to add that sometimes if your bubs is having trouble with dairy occasionly soy can effect them too.
Yeah i know that thats why i'm wondering about his poo's at the mom i was thinking maybe it's the soy, i use the karicare soy. Was Jasmine on that formula from a young age? did you notice a difference?
How old is Jasmine, i was wondering what age i can start useing the goats milk or rice milk in the cooking?
Jasmine was bottle feed from birth and she had the Karicare delact from then.
She is 13mths old now. I think I started giving her goats milk on her cereal, custards etc at about 8mths.
I can tell if she has had something she shouldn't cause she gets really whingy and does more poos.
I even have to be careful about giving her things with milk solids in them. I only just worked this out. She had been really whingy lately, especially in the mornings and I couldnt work out why. Thought it might have been teeth but it seemed to be worse in the mornings. Well I finally worked out that she had been having a few cocoa pops from her brother in the mornings and that was causing the problems. I looked at the box and they have milk solids in them. I don't know why I didn't think of it before.She had only been having about 10 but that was enough.
It is pretty tricky sometimes but they are totally different babies if you manage to get it right.
i'm already noticing the difference in Lochie and it's only been a couple of days! I'm not sure how intolerant he is because it was only in the evening/over night that he was playing up because of the dairy. So i'm wondering just how much dairy he could have. I'm not going to test it out though.
Thanks for your advice Jasminesmum
