Mommy drinking milk ?

We are EBF and I've been eating alot of cereal because its a quick easy meal. At the same time my DD has been throwing these crying fits . So out of character ! Think she's reacting to my milk consumption ?

Re: Mommy drinking milk ?

  • It's possible.  Dairy can be hard on their tummies at first.  Could also be coincidence.  4mo is a challenging point.  You could cut back on the dairy and see if it helps.  You could use almond or coconut milk for your cereal.

  • I highly doubt it. 4 months is just rough. My LO has started the screaming fits, too. Overtired/4mo wakeful, IMO.

    I was going to give up dairy early on an my pedi said the likelihood it was dairy was pretty unlikely...I forget the exact stat...but she said it was probably just a rough period and it would pass. Sure enough, she was right.

    On that note...if you do give up dairy I HIGHLY recommend Blue Diamond coconut almond milk. Pour that on some coco puffs...oh my god. That is my sht right there.

  • Both my kids have been dairy sensitive. Meaning if I ate too much they got gassy and fussy. But it showed up really early.
    If it's just starting I'd say it's not related
  • It's crazy to me that some pediatricians say its uncommon for milk allergies and others say it is common. My DD's Pedi told me to go dairy free cause of her gas and spitting up that didnt start till she was 2 1/2months old. Did completely dairy free for a few weeks. And had to bring some dairy back in. It was hard, well for me it was. I was so use to just grabbing a snack like a granola bar. But everything has dairy in it. I think it does help my DD a little bit, so now I'm just trying to watch how much dairy I consume. I love the almond milk the PP mentioned! I thought I would hate it, I can be a picky eater. You can try cutting back and see if that helps or it could just be her age and temporary.
