Hi! I’m a mom of six precious cherubs who all have one thing in common. Me. Just kidding:) Actually, 5 out of 6 have all suffered in one way or another from a milk allergy/intolerance. I have created this website and written The Milk Allergy Companion & Cookbook because thirteen years ago, when it all began, I had no clue where to go or what to do to help my oldest son. If I had known what I know now, life would have definitely been easier and we would have had fewer trips to the emergency room. I hope that by posting this information it will in some way help someone else who suffers from the same thing.
A few weeks later I tried giving him yogurt. After one bite of yogurt, he went into anaphylaxis and we rushed him to the urgent care. His eyelids swelled shut, and his entire body swelled up. It was surreal. I became pregnant with our second son and was still nursing, as I didn’t want to try formula again. Of course I got sick with my second pregnancy as well. My oldest son started losing weight, so naively I decided to give him a bottle of straight cow’s milk. This time his eyes rolled back and he had labored breathing. Finally we found an allergist who told us that he was allergic to milk and eggs.
