My LO is 8 1/2 mo old. He has a milk protein allergy. It causes severe stomach pain, gas, frothey poops, and lots of vomit (which caused no/low weight gain). I (completely) eliminated dairy from my diet when we found out that all his problems stemmed from the milk protein allergy. We have been dairy free for about 4 months now.
3 months ago I ate chicken fingers (which had milk in them) with ranch dressing (milk) and had cake (milk). That night and the next 2 days my LO screamed his head off. I know he was in horrible pain. I so regretted having that meal.
This last friday I ate a peice of fudge (had milk in it) and he had NO reaction. So the next day I had another peice of it and also NO reaction.
This coming Saturday dh is taking me out for my B-day and a date night(rare for us) . I'm really looking forward to it. Here's my question: Is it too early for me to have a meal that has milk in it? I'm thinking stuffed shells with mozzerella. and Cheesecake for dessert. I don't want to eat this entire meal and cause my sweet LO to be in pain. But I was thinking since he didn't react to the fudge that it might be ok to give a meal a try. What do you guys think????
