There's just too much chance of cross contamination so I stay clear now especially after thanksgiving. I made my own dairy free stuffing and the baby got really sick. That or maybe my turkey had whey it and I didn't know. Some of the turkeys I saw had whey in them but the one I bought had natural flavoring whatever that is. I've learned that there's milk in things there it doesn't belong and you can't eat anything without reading all ingredients first. Also just because its lactose free doesn't mean it's dairy free and products don't always list milk and soy in bold print under allergies. My family doesn't understand. My mother in law told me just to buy premade pie crusts for thanksgiving when I told here I couldn't have butter. What does she thinks in the pillsburry lol. I was actually thinking it would be nice if we had some sort of elimination diet thread that was permanent here in the breast feeding support forum but I didn't know how to go about doing it. Oh also my favorite dairy free recipe resource is and Wegmans has some good ideas to but you have to double check Wegmans because they're listed as lactose free.
I have a friend is planning on starting a support group for moms having to eliminate things from their diet. We are both dairy soy and egg free at the moment and she helped me get started as well as helped with meal suggestions.

Although my LOs symptoms were not as intense I recently eliminated dairy soy and eggs and it seems to be helping significantly. I suspect it is dairy but read something like 50% of babies with dairy sensitivity/allergy also have issue with soy so I cut both out to try to help my dd faster.
