Dairy free diet....

My new DD is almost 3 weeks old, she is spitting up more and more and getting more fussy. Now I have had 3 babies so far with reflux, first 2 we tried medications, didn't help. My 2nd DD was SO colicy (I was told!) I think it was dairy intolerance, she was later on soy milk. My 3rd DD was very fussy, spitty by 3 weeks so I tried the Dr Sears elimation diets, and cutting out dairy made a world of difference. Finally at 20 months she could have regular cow's milk without problems.

Back to this baby....I know all babies are different, however, I am strongly thinking that dairy elimination may help. She has been a very good baby, hardly even cries until now. We eat ALOT of dairy, DH thinks everything needs to be covered in cheese! LOL

I really don't want to have to fix 2 different meals for myself and my family so I need some ideas! I did buy some rice milk to use. I don't think I will drink it but figured it would be good for mixing in stuff....

So, help me out with some good nutritious dairy free ideas!

Men who eat lots of dairy are at 400% greater risk of prostate cancer than other people, and people who eat the most dairy suffer more osteoporosis, so eliminating dairy from the diet permanently can be a fabulous thing.

Rice milk is actually tasty. It's a tad starchy tasting, but it's good, and it's really good to cook with.

You may want to try hemp milk, too. It's a really good, nutritional bang. It's not cheap, though, but when you read the label---WHOOOO, it's just loaded with good stuff, so it makes a person feel a bit better about the price. I drink it all the time--plain, vanilla, chocolate---we've always got some here.
