I haven't been eating bread anyway because everything has milk and soy in it. I wonder how long I'll have to keep my diet this strict for. LO is only 3 months but I would do anything for her. I wish I had been more educated and had all this support when I was trying to breastfeed my son. He was allergic to milk and soy to but he wasn't gaining well so the Ped had me switch him to special formula.
But that was 6 years ago and I was young and didn't know any better.
You are doing great. I cut out all those foods too and did it for as long as I nursed. It was worth it and I was so healthy too. You are a great mom to do what you did for your oldest. It is better to have a happy, healthy baby than anything else. Now you are going to do the same for this LO, just in a different way.
