Help with nondairy milk!
How old is your DD? If she's under 2 she should be nursing or on some kind of formula to be sure she's getting the fats she needs. What do you need milk for? Why are you wanting to avoid grains?
It does seem like a tough one. I guess I would ask why you are avoiding things and see if maybe one of the "rules" can be bent if possible. I have found with alternative foods I have sometimes had to sacrifice something to be able to feed my kids.
I do give her a supplement, but it's only 20% of the RDA. It may be enough, but I still worry because I'm good at that. I will have to see if there are better sal-free, gluten free supplements out there.
It must be so hard to feed your family! Kudos to you for being so in tune with your daughter's sensitivities and nutritional needs! She is a very lucky girl.
I have been gluten-free for 6 days and it's not impossible but I would have such a hard time with other restrictions!
Thanks! It's even harder because until my gut heals from the recently diagnosed Celiac, I have 36 foods that I am intolerant to. Several of them are veggies my daughter can handle. The ones I can handle, she can't handle. It's been a frustrating journey!
There are tons of symptoms and you can experience several symptoms or even just one. Rashes, itchy skin, fatigue, frequent need to urinate, headaches, sleep problems, etc. And of course those can be symptoms of so many things.
Can't really help you with the milk as you listed the only ones I'm aware of.
I actually don't plan on giving my 1 year old milk, but instead eating foods rich in calcium (salmon) and supplementing. Milk is overrated and over-processed in my humble opinion. Good luck!!
