Let the weaning begin

    So it has started.  The doctor gave us the ok, since Little B has some food allergies we needed to know what to wean him to, we have started to wean.   I am ready, now I am not sure that Little B wants to, but I am done.  So this last two weeks we have been working on it.  I am taking it slow for me.  Letting my body get use to making less milk.  Little B is getting use to it also.  He does not mind the rice milk and seems to take a sippy cup now much better.
    The hard part for me is how to have a soy and dairy free house.  Now O and I can do soy but to cut out soy and dairy has been a challenge.  I also have found that Little B is a picky eater.  That may be becuase his belly hurts when he eats the wrong things.  It is a challenge and right now he seems to eat only 5 or 6 things.  Now I am still working on learning how to cook dairy and soy free.  It seems like everything has soy in it, so now I have to really make things from scratch.  I will have to say for his birthday I was able to make a dairy and soy free cake, with diary and soy free frosting.
   So my work is cut out for me.  To wean my baby and figure out what I am going to feed him and how to mange the meals in my house. 

My friends if you have any good hints for my or any recipes that our soy and dairy free please pass them my way.

  1. Wow, that would be SUCH a challenge - soy and dairy free?!! Oh my goodness, grace to you dear woman. :) Yikes! Now doubt you'll do fine and will grow in your creativity as you go. But wow, I'm so sorry that things are that difficult for you. Reminds me to keep perspective when I struggle to get Levi to eat his veggies... I don't have to worry about any allergies or intolerances and we are so, so blessed for that. Good luck to you in this process!
