Dairy Free Recipes
Nursing the twins has been rather hard. First, they were born early and never got a good latch. Coming from a mother that breastfed her first three children, the extra steps required were going to take me being attached to a breast pump rather than my precious newborns. Once the routine of pumping became the norm, I started noticing colic in Henry. This was around 7 weeks of age. In addition to the colic, Henry was constipated and having alot of projectile vomit with mucus. I researched potential reasons and we eliminated dairy from my diet. This seemed to do the trick and thus began the sacrifice of not only pumping, but additionally changing my diet and sacrificing my favorite foods.
I made the mistake with my third born of creating a healthy diet and lowering my calorie intake. Happily, I lost my baby weight but sadly, I also lost my supply, Since I was trying to keep up a supply for twins, I began searching Dairy Free Recipes to go with my new Dairy Free Diet. Many of these recipes have the intent of still supplying calories and still remaining tasty. Additionally, I researched some recipes that support lactation and breast milk production. My goal in this post was not to overload you with meats and veggies (because that is obviously an easy elimination to dairy) but to supply you with tasty eats, so you don’t feel like your diet is a sacrifice.
Helpful tip: OREOs were my best friend. Did you know OREOs are dairy free? They totally helped me with cravings that often had diary.

First up, baking was particularly hard on me. I found this Dairy Free Conversions Chart and it was pretty convenient for pretty much everything involves milk, cream or butter!
