I am lucky to have a great supply and Adley is a latching champ. Ha!
However, I am facing a different kind of struggle! And that is one of no dairy.
Adley had a few diapers that left me worried and concerned. I talked to my doctor about them and she suggested I cut out dairy for a week or so and see what happens. I am guessing that I will slowly reintroduce dairy into my diet to see if the issue reoccurs? I don't know.
I have friends and have read that dairy can cause other problems with baby like gas or extra fussiness. I don't feel like Adley is fussier than usual, but she does act like she is in pain sometimes when she is gassy or constipated.
I joke that cheese makes me foam at the mouth and brag about having the willpower to avoid a Krispy Kreme donut because it has dairy in it, but I really am ok with changing my diet. I would do whatever I need to do to keep giving her my milk, unless I knew it wasn't good for her.
I've been getting creative with my dairy free options. I found some Ghiardelli chocolate chips I can eat and honey tastes good on toast. I need to chuck the Mint Chocolate chip and provolone cheese from the fridge though. They just keep looking at me.
Ever experience this? Know of any good dairy free meals/foods?
