Breastfeeding ❤️❤️❤️ So.....the UK has the lowest BF rates in Western culture and the NHS only really promotes breastfeeding to 6 months. Why is this?! If you have concerns that your BF baby might be reacting to something in your breastmilk this doesn’t have to be the end of your breastfeeding journey. Of course dairy free formulas are available on prescription, but by making small changes to your diet you could continue to breastfeed your intolerant tot to two years and beyond if you wanted to!! Let’s get these rates up mummy’s!! Xxx
Normal mac n cheese recipe but we replace the butter with dairy free spread, milk with almond milk, cheese with dairy free alternative. Better than any other recipe I've found and tastes absolutely delicious. The almond milk gives it a slightly sweeter taste. #macncheese#dairyfree#milkallergy#cmpa#betterthanheinz

I was shocked when I read the NICE guidelines for managing reflux in infants.
The guidelines themselves are really quite good in terms of what to look for, red flag symtpoms etc.
What is not so good is that NOWHERE, do the guidelines ever mention finding the CAUSE for a babys apparent reflux or discomfort.
How can this be right or fair?
Reflux ALWAYS has a cause. It is not a disease itself. Find the cause. Find the RIGHT solution.
And 12 weeks is a long time to go “trying” one thing and then another and at the end of it Baby is on multiple meds and still suffering???
You can work out what is going on yourself using the information and steps I outline in The Baby Reflux Lady’s Survival Guide

Tuesday was both a success and an epic FAIL !! Summer is over, it’s now hat weather which means we come out of hiding :) a few major fails today though so we have retreated back home for some lunch ! Logan took an epic fall in the woods, landed on his already weak and stiff knees so we headed to the cafe which unfortunately does NOT cater for dairy free folk... but he was feeling blue so we attempted a hot chocolate and a muffin... a few sips later and half a muffin devoured and we had to head home as he couldn’t move ! #mumfail#parentingfail#somedaysigetitwrong#cmpa#livingdairyfree#homeed#dyspraxia#lowmuscletone#wetried

Do not adjust your sets, this little cauliflower came this colour (he had a purple friend too)! I couldn’t resist buying, and it seemed the perfect thing to use for the whole roasted cauliflower recipe from @ottolenghi’s new book ‘Simple’. Once you’ve roasted cauliflower you'll never go back, and the green tahini sauce was 👌🏼 (I used all olive oil instead of the butter)
Let me tell you how much I DIDN'T want to workout today... .
I'm pretty sure I ate my body weight, in carbs, this weekend, so of course I'm sluggish and bloated now. I'm behind a workout from last week. I have a shit ton of laundry to fold (yes, those baskets are all clean... 🖕🏻), and I can't remember the last time I had a good night sleep. .
So yeah, I could have thrown in the towel today, just given up, and used the famous "I'll start next Monday" excuse. But, a bad meal, or a bad day, or a bad weekend isn't going to derail all of your results. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU QUIT! .
If you have a goal, it means you forget about all of the shit you ate and the workouts you missed, and start fresh. You're only quitting yourself if you do, so stop letting yourself down!! .
Guess what? I felt so much happier, clear minded, healthier, and overall confident afterwards. 👌🏻❤️ .
Not the best pic but the food was good! Homemade pork and apple burgers. We had grown up sized ones obviously.. I just mixed:
And that’s it! Fried in coconut oil which was a mistake as I could taste it. Next time I’d use a different oil that doesn’t have a strong flavour. But still really tasty. A tip I picked up a while back for burgers is to smush the mixture with your hands for ages. Much less likely that they’ll fall apart while cooking as the mixture gets really smooth. Mmmm. Smooth raw minced meat. Nice eh?? .
Update on Maxi -
He’s turning five months old tomorrow and it’s been the toughest five months for us all as a family. Max has really struggled with feeds and we still aren’t 100% sure what is wrong. He very clearly suffers from silent reflux. He does bring up feeds but it’s more in his throat lately and the acid smell is always there. Aside from that the question of cows milk allergy is still a worry. He’s tried a few bits of food but we aren’t doing well so back on the milk for now. He loves watching mummy eat though so he’s showing signs he’s ready. I think he’s teething too. Lots of dribble, high pitched screams, chewing on everything.
His three favourite things are baths, Sophie the giraffe and his big brother!
Skin is still a little patchy and dry, poops are still like water and dark in colour so I don’t think we’re out the woods yet! #babyboy#colic#cmpi#cmpa#refluxbaby#tired#teething#boymum#mumofboys#love#smile#mumblog#bloggerlife#mumslifenetwork
A B O U T U S 💛 •
So just thought I would introduce us! My name is Paige and I'm Oscars mummy! Oscar is 8 months old (nearly 9😭) and was born on boxing Day! 26.12.17 we live in Suffolk and he has a big brother who is 4 called Bentley! Oscar is diagnosed CMPA so no dairy and also allergic to egg and possibly soya! All this aside he is a very happy baby! Who doesn't like sleep 🤷🏽♀️😂. We would love it if you want to introduce yourself so we can meet some more mummys! •
Our pot plant carrots may not have been the prettiest but amazingly they survived a good deal of neglect. We popped them into a soup with tomato & pepper which A declared ‘delicious’. 👍🏼 #wonkyveg#brownthumbs
I do really enjoy making up the boys’ Yumboxes, making nice sandwiches and cutting the shit out of basically everything 🙈
But this is our, ‘we are really late’, ‘where are your shoes?’, ‘are you wearing a nappy or underpants because I have no idea where we are up to with potty training?!’, lunchbox.
Free from dairy, egg, soya, sesame, peanut and tree nut all the same 👍🏽
**Sweet Potato & turkey pie** GF, DG, EF
500g turkey mince
4 large sweet potatoes
1 tbs oil
300ml chicken stock
2 tbs corn flour in 100ml water
1 tbs Rosemary (for seasoning)
Peel sweet potatoes and put to boil until soft.
Meanwhile heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the mince until white all over. Add the chicken stock, corn flour and rosemary and simmer until thick. Place in an oven proof dish.
Add a tea spoon of marg to the sweet potatoes and mash. Carefully add to the oven proof dish on top of the meat.
Place in the oven at 170 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with your choice of veg.
You could also add veg to the mince if you wanted. I always put mine on the side as we don't all like it.
Apologies for the blurry pics. The steam made it difficult to photograph.
Smiles this evening after finally finding a teething gel for CMPI/reflux babies and a decent paracetamol without sorbitol (for those wondering, sorbitol is not good for babies with reflux and milk intolerance) -
He’s been really clingy the past couple of days and I was genuinely wondering whether I’d made a mistake putting him on this dairy free milk. BUT since he’s been on it - his poops have improved, his skin has improved and his reflux has settled down (a little!!)
So I started to think it could be something else. Well, long story short... he has an ear infection and on antibiotics and I think he’s definitely showing serious teething signs. He’s always cranky so it’s hard to tell but the dribble, chewing hands and screams gave me a clue! So after seeking advice from my group on Facebook, I realised calpol is not good for little ones with cmpi issues so I did some research and with some help found the best of the best! Message me if you’d like to know what I’ve been using I’d be happy to help anyone going through similar. But honestly, he screamed and threw up loads after calpol and I was in tears thinking I’d hurt him. But he’s happy this evening (a few whinges STANDARD) and he’s ASLEEP! -
Unfortunately it is near impossible to have a routine with a cmpi/reflux baby but I will get there slowly ❤️💙❤️ #refluxbaby#mumblog#bloggerlife#boymom#ig_motherhood#cmpi#cmpa#allergies#milkintolerance#babyboy#routine#tired#teething#sickybaby#myboy#mumofboys#mumslifenetwork
Not only are we all stuffed up with colds & coughs 😷🤧 When a new allergy appears 🤦🏻♀️ when this happens it’s so hard to not blame myself but I know it’s a minefield with allergies 💣and can’t avoid everything before Penelope tries new foods we usually stick to what we know with her as we don’t want this or worse happening but we think it’s chickpeas or sesame seed let’s just say hummus is no longer a friend ☹️ which makes me so sad as she just loved it would literally dip anything into it even if we thought it was vile 😂 if it’s not either of these allergens then we are back to eliminating more foods and soya you would think being dairy free since 4 months would be enough to deal with and one would hope it would get easier as they get older (with her diet) obviously the whole parenting thing gets harder 😳😂🙈 anyway after a trip to the gp were on a dose of antihistamine and hopefully it’s calmed down by Monday we’re on day 3 but in great form ☺️🙌🏻 #kidswithfoodallergies#cmpa#cowsmilkproteinallergy 🐄🚫#takeallergensseriously#newallergies
