    Subbing for some extra ideas. DD is now 10 months old and I've been dairy and soy free since she was 4 weeks old. My best find has been chocolate ice cream made with almond milk at my local woolworths, and yumi dips (especially the sweet potato and cashew).

    Oooh icecream will have to look for it! And the dips. Well done for keeping this up so long. I'm trying not to think tonfar ahead as it feels a bit overwhelming at the moment. I'm sure that once things settle and I get better at it it won't feel that way.

    I'm dairy free due to severe dermatitis when I eat it.
    I can tolerate small amounts of ghee as a butter substitute. Ghee removes all the protein but leaves the fat. I make it myself and cook it for double the amount of time to remove more.

    Try stay away from soy products- soy is oestrogen mimicking.

    I found once I cut out both gluten & dairy my symptoms improved dramatically, gluten & dairy are cross reactors.

    Woolworths sell a brand- Nutty Bruce in the fresh milk section, they're my favourite nut milks and all organic too.

    If you look at gluten free products most will be dairy free also, but I personally stay away from most packaged foods as they're normally full of nasties.

    Ice cream I get zebra dream brand
    Chocolate I get pana chocolate
    Cheese substitute I use cashew cheese or very occasionally the bio cheese posted by a pp.
    sour cream/cream I make my own cashew creams.

    You can get plenty of calcium from almonds and green leafy veg however if you're not eating much of these it's a good idea to take a good quality calcium supplement but make sure it has vit d as you need vit d to obsorb the calcium.

    @binnielici no worries. It seems hard at the start but once you get your head around it it's actually pretty easy. If you have any other questions just ask.

    It definitely gets easier with time but I still get caught out sometimes particularly trying to eat out. And unfortunately DD is a really clingy baby so I don't have much time to cook things to serve as replacements. But I have to admit I like the weight loss benefits (although that's probably partly due to carrying DD while chasing DS too!).
