    Default Cows milk protein allergy?

    Do you eat any type of commercial bread? Cakes, biscuits, crackers etc? Vegetable oil in cooking? Any packaged food?

    Trust me, you will be blown away with what has soy in it! Even simple boiled lollies and pretty much most packaged food. I found cutting soy out much harder than dairy.

    Goodness me. Sounds like I need to go on a clean eating diet.. DH is on one so wouldn't be that hard.. I need to talk to a dietician quickly I think..

    It is so hard. I found I pretty much had to make everything myself. Meat and three veg! I found it incredibly difficult as I couldn't put DD down long enough to cook without her screaming and would often not eat at all until DH got home and made me something. My mental state was far from ideal!

    It would be so much easier if I had to do it again, I'm much more aware of what I can/can't have.

    Please don't feel bad - you gave your son the best thing for him at the time. Developmental issues and other health problems are not caused exclusively by formula, despite what some would have you believe. The 'increased risks' are so minimal in reality - that's according to several specialist medical professionals that I spoke to when going through CMPI and BF issues with DD. As I said before, malnutrition from persisting with BFing when it's not going to work or is causing severe reactions which mean bub is getting hardly anything from it anyway is more dangerous IMO.

    We all do our best for our babies and no one should feel any less for that. I think we make the choices we see fit based on our own personal situation and that is all we can do. Every mum and every baby is different.

    Default Cows milk protein allergy?

    Here are some food ideas-
    breakfast- bacon/ egg/mushroom/tomato, golden brand crumpets with nuttlex and honey, dairy-free apple/ banana muffins (i have recipes if you want them), porridge made on water with brown sugar/maple syrup/honey/raspberries or other fruit, cereal with rice or almond milk, heinz tomato baked beans/ or SPC rich tomato spaghetti, toast with nuttlex and vegemite/ peanut butter or avocado- some non dairy/soy breads are Bills organic, some turkish breads, some sourdough or pane di casa- check labels since most breads have soy flour in them.

    Lunch- I found the easiest lunch meals were leftovers from dinner- I'd deliberately make extra most nights. But lebanese wraps or mountain bread with meat/ salad is always easy. Just check any deli meats for hydrolysed vegetable protein, since it can be soy. I found primo brand smallgoods were mostly soy-free. Forget about BBQ chickens from woolies/ Coles, since they have dairy. Better to cook your own chicken. Pesto pasta salad made with mayo and galiko brand basil pesto (from the fruit and veg section of woolies) with some sun dried tomato and chicken is yummy. Or couscous with roasted pumpkin, soups- make your own to avoid dairy.

    Dinners- usual meat and 3 veg, grilled meats with salad and smashed potatoes, pasta (without the cheese, obviously), some thai food- green curry, etc, rice paper rolls with sweet chili sauce, lamb rogan josh (check labels), some Mexican food. Or I'll start a risotto with olive oil instead of butter, then serve my portion before adding Parmesan at the end. I found dinners the easiest meal to adapt.

    Treats/ snack foods- Oreo cookies, BBQ shapes, sesame snaps, plain potato chips, plain corn chips and salsa, some dips- hummus, baba ghanoush, beetroot dip, also there is a sweet potato and pistachio one I can't remember the brand which is nice, with bagel crisps or other crackers. Marshmallows, jelly lollies like snakes, Lindt 70% chocolate, whittakers dark chocolate with almonds, jelly, weis sorbets, corn thins with peanut butter, apple and cinnamon rice cakes. And I have some recipes for brownies, muffins etc if you want them.

    When checking labels, don't get too worried about soy lecithin since it's used an a emulsifier to bind fats and water. It is usually free of soy protein.

    Hope that gives you a few ideas. Also, remember to take a calcium supplement, especially since you're breast feeding.

    Lovelymum, big hugs. You shouldn't be blaming yourself- you did the absolute best for your little man. I know that with my DD who was losing weight, pooing blood and refusing to feed, I was at the point of turning to formula- it was just a nightmare, and I was in tears every time I tried to feed her. I was incredibly lucky to get bumped up a 6 month wait list to see an incredible paediatric gastroenterologist, and if it weren't for that she would have gone onto neocate too. You did the best, with the information you were given at the time, and you can't beat yourself up over it.
