1. Hi there. I’m the mom who wrote the blog post you linked to and wanted to offer you a few words of encouragement…what my article doesn’t mention is that my daughter grew out of the allergy within less than a year. She’s perfectly fine now and has no issues with dairy or anything else. Cutting dairy from my diet wasn’t easy but it wasn’t impossible either.

    To answer your question about why did she have to suffer for three weeks – I only saw blood in her diaper once…the other weeks we actually had to test it to see if there were still traces. This minimal amount of blood wasn’t a huge concern from my pediatrician because these types of allergies are super common and she was fairly certain that it was an allergy and wanted to rule that out before sending us to a GI specialist.

    Hope you and your little one are well and I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to email me if there are any questions I can answer.

      Oh my goodness!! It’s so great to hear from you!
      Because we are now actually going through the same thing, I feel like I might have jinxed myself or something.

      How did you know that your daughter had outgrown the allergy? Did you just check every now and then?
      Thank you so much for reaching out!!!!

      • I dropped this comment and completely forgot to check back! To answer your question, we just cautiously tried giving her the things that I had cut out of her diet and she didn’t seem to have any issues. Just one allergen at a time to see if she had any reaction. We waited until after a year old to give her cow’s milk. Luckily no issues.
