Dumping Dairy (again)

Hi Guys and a Happy New Year. Now I know that the start of a new year is full of promises and resolutions but I’m not going dairy free as a resolution but as a necessity… my baby stinks! Not just a little bit either, I’m talking about clear the room, atomic bomb stinky. She’s exclusively breastfed and apparently shouldn’t smell this bad. The suspected culprit? Dairy.

I should explain, her older brother has a severe dairy allergy, coming out in hives on contact and she is no where near as bad but the signs are there. He also could clear a room in one foul flatulent explosion swoop whilst exclusively BF until I gave up dairy. Then, the magic happened. I gave up dairy and within 2 weeks he stopped smelling and started sleeping better.

So fingers crossed and wish me luck!
