My second son is now 8 weeks old and has been diagnoised as being allergic to dairy, I have now been avoiding dairy for 3 weeks and have seen a definate improvement with Louie, however, I am finding my new dairy free diet very difficult. I was so desperate to breastfeed as with my first son I struggled and didnt get any further than day 5 before giving him a bottle. I even took herbal medicines towards the end of my pregnancy to bring my milk in which seemed to work and breastfeeding is going really well.
I am so torn, part of me wants to carry on and I feel selfish for even considering stopping just so that i can eat some cheese and have some milk in my coffee!!! The other part of me thinks I have tried to cut out dairy and done 3 weeks which is more than some people would do.
Please help me!!! x
