About Dairy Free for Baby:
Hi there! I’m Chrissy, an RD and food-loving gal. I’ve got an adorable three year old boy at home with me now, who’s a little sweet, a little stubborn, and has an amazing head of hair.
When my kiddo was born, he suffered from several food intolerances – in particular dairy, soy, and eggs. There I was, a new mom, trying to get into the swing of things with a newborn – and I had to overhaul my own diet so that I could keep nursing. I was happy to do it for him, but goodness – there were a lot of changes I had to make!
Luckily, my son outgrew all his intolerances around a year old. But after seeing a lot of mom friends struggle with the same issue, I decided to start this website to make things easier for all the other moms dealing with this. Make it easier…
- To find reputable nutrition information that’s not coming from so-and-so on a baby forum
- To find healthy recipes that aren’t the same old boring plain grilled protein and steamed vegetables
- To have treats that fit allergy needs – dairy free cookies and cakes, here I come!
- To find recipes appropriate for you, your kiddos, or a friend
Who is this website for?
I mean, technically it’s for anyone of course! But most of the recipes and articles are created with the following peeps in mind:
- Nursing moms who are changing their diet because their baby has a dairy intolerance
- Moms who are introducing solids to babies with food intolerances
- Families with food allergies
- Anyone who needs dairy free recipes for their diet/lifestyle!
