My ydd has a milk allergy or intolerance. What happens when she has dairy of any kind is she gets really congested, and wheezy. Which then leads to an ear infection. She'll get itchy/rashy skin, warmish almost feverish. And then a big hard belly which then leads to diarrhea. (TMI)
She drinks almond milk.
I've bought the veggie/soy cheese. She's only 2 (3 on St. Patty's day!). But I'm wondering about things like mac & cheese. We had Alfredo yesterday for lunch. Wouldn't ya know she's all congested today. :( I feel so bad b/c dairy is in things I don't even think about.
She loves cheese and does understand that things give her "bad bad poo poos" (Her terms not mine!!) I also feel bad b/c she is only 2 and while she understands that something;s she can't eat. Of course she loves mac and cheese and yogurt. I get her almond yogurt and we don't do much if any processed foods. But having kids, you know how mac & cheese is a fav!! I get the boxed kind (have made it from scratch also). Usually Annie's or Nature's Pathway.
I have heard that raw milk and cheeses could be good. I've bought raw milk cheese before, but I haven't given it to her.
What are your thoughts on raw milk and do you have any other alternatives?
