Re: Dairy Elimination

This sounds like my baby, I think I am going to try it. Does anyone know how long it takes to get out of your system?

2-3 weeks to get out of your system then 2-3 weeks to get out of baby's system.

Yeah does take a while for everything to calm down. I know when I went off milk and then soy I had a brand new happy baby after 6 weeks. I saw major improvement after about three weeks and by 6 weeks almost all spitting up had stopped.

This! I had to cut out dairy with DS because he was projectile vomiting violently twice a day, and there was yellow/green mucus in it. After I cut out dairy very carefully, and also gave him pro-biotic drops to heal him up, he was totally fine. After he was 1, I slowly introduced dairy foods to him and he has been fine.

When cutting out dairy, I enjoyed coconut yogurt and coconut milk ice cream. Also used vanilla soy milk sometimes in my cereal and such. That was yummy.

Re: Dairy Elimination

I'm doing almond milk and probiotics to help with lingering tummy issues. My DD just gets super gassy and fussy when I have dairy. Trying to find a good cheese substitute, but can't seem to find one.

We have both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods but well, the cheese substitutes are always "off." Nothing can compare to regular cheese I guess. *sigh*
