One Last Hurrah!

As you know my son has been sick most of the winter. At his well appointment, my pediatrician and I decided that it coincided with the introduction of dairy to his diet.  As a result, we are now dairy free again.  I have to abstain, because I’m going to try and keep nursing until the end of winter, to boost his immunity.  It has just been so much easier to figure out what to feed the little, and enjoy some yogurt.  It’s come to an end, so this afternoon, I pretended that I had the appointment in the afternoon, and had a slice of coffee cake with a bit of butter (just like my Mormor used to have) and enjoyed my last dairy hurrah for a while.

That looks so delicious. I'd be happy to take the leftovers off your hands, ya know, so you won't be tempted.

I'm dairy free and what a huge difference. All of my children have been reared on goat's milk (after nursing). I thought I could get away with cow's milk again with our youngest and he was sick every week for 3 months. We just switched back to goat's milk and he hasn't been sick since (though I don't like to say that too loudly, just in case!). Best wishes to you!
