DS (8 weeks) has had some pretty decent reflux, so I decided to try dairy free to see if that would help. Fortunately, it has completely eliminated his issues. I'm fine without, for the most part, although I am missing it terribly. I can do without or substitute for most things, but I'm dying for my butter. At some point I'll add some butter back in and see if I can have it without starting back his issues. In the meantime, any ideas on a decent, healthy substitute? I'm looking mostly for something to put on toast, sandwiches, things like that. Thanks!
^ Yeah that. If you really need something buttery to spread on toast or whatever, Earth Balance works pretty well. I don't eat it all that often, but sometimes coconut or olive oil just will not do, you know?
Best Life buttery spread.
I really like it, but only as a butter for toast not cooking/baking or anything like that (expect for butter on baked potatoes and stuff to add a little flavor)
There are coupons pretty often.

I currently use Fleishman's unsalted- it's completely dairy-free. It seems to work pretty well in place of butter (but not in buttercream icing- that was a total fail)
