Thanks for all the advice. I'm going to give BM yogurt a try and let you know how it comes along.

I think I'm just wierd about fungi period though. If you want to try & make some, GEM Cultures has the starter you can order online.
My dh is bothered by dairy too, but not all dairy. For him, it's primarily the lactose (which the probiotic bacteria munch up). If he were to just drink a glass of milk he has bad belly problems afterwards, but yogurt he's ok with. So it's possible your dh might tolerate a homemade yogurt. Or you could just use the powdered stuff.
|Rainbow--- my wife was lactose intolerant and our first step was to get lactase gelcaps (the enzyme necessary for lactose digestion) for her milk consumption. Once she got "cultured" the lactase was no longer necessary.|

Even breastmilk has casein:
so that the best option for a dairy allergic child would be a cultured breastmilk where the casein would be partially digested.
Thanks for bringing this up. I wasn't aware that breastmilk had casein in it. Although I still wouldn't recommend not nursing-- the other aspects are simply too important.
