Forgive my ignorance, and a bit off topic, I know cmpi is cow's milk protein intolerance, but that's about all I know about it. How was it diagnosed, why was it looked for in the first place? Honestly just not sure, seen it talked about on BH before but wasn't sure about it further.

@Cue, if it were me and feeding every two hours, I think the diet on top of that would do my head in. My bub is FF and feeds every 3-4 hours, and sometimes I can't even manage to make myself a healthy lunch if he's being a bit fussy. I just can't imagine having to make a specific diet work and feeding so regularly.
Of course the decision is yours but please don't feel guilty if you decide to FF. You need to do what is going to work best for you given the circumstances. If you're already suffering from mild PND, this might be the thing that pushes you too far. You need to consider what you can manage without pushing your stress/anxiety to the next level. All your baby cares about is a full tummy.

Thanks everyone for your posts, I will need to make a decision soon and commit to it either way. It's just so frustrating that I can't just BF like a normal person and have a happy thriving baby.

I'm almost a week in to the dairy-free diet and it hasn't been too bad. I find lunch the hardest, today I had a bread roll and an apple - not great! I just need to get better at cooking dairy-free meals and knowing the alternatives. I'm actually feeling fairly positive about it at the moment, especially now that DS is taking a small comp feed in the afternoons which is making me feel better about his food intake. It also means he's getting used to the occasional bottle which gives me some freedom.
He'll be 4 months old next week, I can't believe I got this far!

That is awesome you're doing such an amazing job. I have a heap of dairy free friends and one of which is BF so I'll ask her where she gets her recipes from!

Great that he's taking a bottle ok now, at least you know if you have to switch to formula full time he'll be fine.
I'd probably do the same thing you're doing, see how you go with the diet and if it's not working, switch to the bottle. Don't feel guilty. At the end of the day your baby is getting fed and that's all that matters. Just give it your best shot and see how you go

2 weeks into the dairy-free diet and it hasn't been too bad. My dinner repertoire isn't as extensive but I'm managing ok. I think it has made a difference, there's a lot less mucous in DSs poop. His sleep hasn't improved but he's also been sick.
I'm still unsure what I'm going to do long term. I am very up and down with it, some days I feel like I can continue BF and other days I really question it, especially days when DS is unsettled.
I wish someone could decide for me!

Well done :-) all you can do is take it one day at a time... I'm not sure I could live with such a restricted diet, you are doing so well!
