A dairy Free Weaning Diet

Your baby may need a dairy free diet if they have symptoms of a cow’s milk protein allergy or intolerance.

It involves avoiding all forms of dairy foods such as milk, butter, cheese, cream, yoghurt, fromage frais, margarine, custards, ice cream and other foods made from milk. This also includes goat’s milk, sheep’s milk and even buffalo milk (think buffalo mozzarella) and any other milk products from animals.

I wrote a blog on this for Annabel Karmel which you can read by clicking here.

  1. I’ve just read your blog and found it incredibly helpful. I’m a breastfeeding Mum and was told by my doctor to go Dairy Free for 6 weeks and have found that I now, finally, have a happy baby. However, I wasn’t given any other information on the impact on mine health or my Daughter’s. I’ll be sure I make an appointment to push for a dietitian referral as we’ve just moved to eating all solids, after a few weeks of vegetables, and I’m already struggling with what foods to make. My biggest concern is how to get calcium in to her diet. Thank you for highlighting this, as there isn’t much information out there on the Internet.

    1. I’m so pleased to have been able to help you, yes do ask for a dietitian referral and if the waiting list is too long you can self refer to a private dietitian without a GP referral.

  2. My little boy is 7 months. He is EBF and has formula once in a while – he seems ok with this. At about 3months he developed eczema/red skin and itchy skin. When introducing cheese and yoghurt through weaning he reacted by extreme itching. We have a referral to see if he has a mik allergy but it isn’t until August. I’ve been advised by GP to eliminate milk dairy from his diet until then. I’m back at work soon and have been given prescribed formula in the meantime. However have not been advised on how I can replace the nutrients that he would have gotten with dairy. Any advice on this?
