The day after Christmas I toke to a NO DAIRY diet at the request of Braden's pediatrician. It is really hard since I LOVE chocolate milk, chocolate, cheese, and pretty much anything else with dairy in it...which happens to be pretty much everything I ate.
I have not been feeling well for months now. I have an upset stomach/nausea about 80% of the day everyday. I have taken numerous pregnancy tests thinking, could this be why I am feeling so sick...all negative. (Side Note: We are not necessarily trying to get pregnant right now.) I have thought maybe I'm allergic to a new food, but haven't really given it much effort to find out what.
Well, Braden took care of it for me and I am loving it! I have felt so amazing these last three days. I forgot what it felt like to really feel good. So I think it is safe to say, I have a dairy intolerance. Which I do think was Braden's problem as well. He went from 10-12 dirty diapers a day (at least two of them being complete blow outs), to only 3-4 dirty diapers a day. I wouldn't have given up dairy for myself, but I would do anything for my kids. In this case it was a blessing for the both of us!
Do you "school" in the Summer?
