We have been completely off dairy butter and all for 2.5 yrs now and off except butter for a few years before. I had hoped that ds' intolerance was due to damage from gluten and Celiac's. We have had a few trials before that I was unsure about so I stopped. However, since then I have figured out that some symptoms were due to something else. Ds started having accidents, which persisted and I finally nailed down to cc- mostly from pb at the in-laws. Dd1 resumed bedwetting and had a rash, which I have finally got the bedwetting stopped and it was coorelated to clo dosage, the rash came back again and I figured out it was connected to trace soy. I have always believed she was the most sensitive to soy.
Anyway, so we started a trial 2 weeks ago with butter, some homemade yogurt(made from raw grassfed milk). They had ice cream as well a few days ago(made from cream). Ds1 has not had any issues in the slightest- behavior fine, bm fine, no skin issues, sleep good- nothing different. Dd had a bit of a rash but she also got some soy and that cleared after a few days past the soy exposure- while the dairy exposure continued. The dd2 has never shown issue with dairy but I stayed off while pregnant and for the first year of her life- except for trace amounts. Since 1 yr I have been eating bits here and there and haven't noticed any issue with her. The first day she had a bit of loose stools(2 x) but seem to be fine since then(I figured could be also attributed to fat content and probiotic content). She had a small amount of ice cream the other night and ended up having a bm in the night(highly unusual) but she also had a lot of blueberries that day and had some funky blue poop-usually she doesn't eat a lot of fruit. She had some ice cream the day after though and no berries and the butt looked better and no more poop issues- which I would think would indicate it was not due to something that she had again.
However, despite the seeming pass thus far I am paranoid, really paranoid. After so long you start to believe that it won't happen. So, I am curious to hear some success stories. Tell me your story please? How you went about reintroduction etc, pretty please :)
