    I love my dad because-- cause he has ears.
    I love this idea - super sweet. I might ask DS some questions and see what his answers are.

    I haven't thought about Father's Day as yet. We've got DS's birthday party on Saturday so I'm focused on getting through that. Hopefully the antibiotics that I got today kick in fast and I can get back to normal so I can prep all the food & cake for the party.

    Hi @BubbleGuts

    Glad your DD is doing better - I've cut out dairy & soy since having my DD. she has also responded really well. The main thing I miss is cheese - I love cheese, any type so it's been hard to not use it. I've also swapped my English breakfast tea for a chai as I find it better suits almond milk.

    Have you missed anything? Or discovered any delightful non dairy treats that you can share?

    Hi @wobbleyhorse

    Yes I've found it really hard cutting out dairy and soy to be honest. I'm not sure I'm doing that well with it, occasionally find I've eaten something without even thinking about it (usually when I'm exhausted).

    I miss cheese and cream. I didn't realize how many things I made with those 2 ingredients .. It's not much fun is it?! I've been alternating between almond and coconut milk, but prefer the almond. I've tried a lot of the 'dairy free treats' at the supermarket .. treat isn't a word I'd use! The 90% Lindt chocolate is good, my dietician said it was fine to eat so there's one good thing!

    What were your DD's symptoms which led you to give up dairy?

    Her main symptoms were pulling off the breast and screaming while feeding, endless screaming after feeds, being unsettled, congested, constant hiccups, slow weight gain. So basically silent reflux - our GP prescribed losec and also suggested eliminating the dairy/soy. It really helped. Our aim is to try to reintroduce once she's a bit older (6-12 months) as he said they often grow out of it.

    I'm finding that I need to make most things at home and eating out is a nightmare. I've had a few slip ups (who knew soy was in some brands of bacon) but I'm getting there 😀

    Gosh - how scary. Anaphylaxis would be one of my biggest fears as a parent but I guess you just have to deal with these things when life throws them at you.

    Hope everyone is having a great day!

    yes wobbleyhorse, it was quite alarming when he was small, but now he is 7 and so used to it. he just doesn't eat anything he cant have, and if he doesn't know if it is ok, he wont eat it. he is even happy to go to the movies and have everyone around him eating the buttered popcorn, he just shrugs it off. such a little champ. marie .
