You never know what you are going to get here, do you? I’m branching away from home decor today to stomp my feet about my son’s potential food allergies. Actually, I’m really seeking advice from those that have been there. Or maybe it’s both.
Poor Reid has had a host of health problems lately and after blood-work and some other tests it seems that he has some sort of food allergy. Apparently, there is a hierarchy of food allergies so we have to eliminate food groups for three weeks each to see what the potential source of the problem is.
First up. Dairy. Did I mention that Reid loves milk more than life itself? Yeah. Or that cheese pizza is his favorite thing in the world? Uh huh. And at the tender age of almost three, explaining that he suddenly can’t have these is the equivalent of alien-speak. I’m preparing for World War III.
The best part is nobody thinks he has a dairy allergy. It is most likely celiac (gluten) because it runs in my husband’s side of the family. So, we take away milk products , cheese, and yogurt for three weeks even though he probably has a gluten allergy. Makes sense to me. At least gluten is next on the list.
I’m seeking advice from any non-dairy people out there. What milk substitutes do you use? Or cheese substitutes?
And you non-gluteners are ruling the world these days so I know you have advice too.
We are waiting to start this madness until after his birthday next week. Didn’t you know? Once you turn three, we take all your food away. It’s a tough life, kid.
