Hi Deb Tad,
Wow it must have been so frustrating not knowing what was causing his skin problems, bless him! So glad you now know what it is, and can feed him accordingly. I did the same thing with different veg and have frozen them - he loves the random mixtures of veggies. I've also made up some beef bolognaise for him as well.
Do you have to give Henry dairy free milk then? or formula? How does it work?

Glad you've got to the bottom of the problem, I hope that his skin etc continues to get better and you find your way with food now!
Did it make an immediate difference to his skin? My son has been on lactose free formula and dairy free for a week but there is no difference to his eczema so think it must be something else?

Good luck on the dairy free weaning route. Thankfully I guess there are so much more available in the fridge section now then there was even 5 years ago. I have a friend whose little boy is also lactose intolerant. She really struggled with him even boefore weaning began . He is nearly 3 now and she doesn't even have to think twice about his diet anymore its second nature to her. Good Luck x

wow that's so good! we dud about 10 days no difference and the formula ran out so went back to the doctors who suggested doing it for a bit longer. Haven't made it to the pharmacy yet but need to because now he's back on dairy his skin is even redder and itchier than before. So it must have helped. Will update once we've gone back to dairy free,.

I hope someone bought Henry some dairy free chocolate eggs for easter!! Its one of my friends pet hates. Her little boy is 3 and the amount of normal chocolate he gets from his aunts/uncles and nannas is ridiculous. They don't think its a real condition apparently!!! Fingers crossed his skin stays clear and that the small flare ups are because of contamination like you said x

Ah bless him, sometimes hard with fruit when you've only got a few teeth as it's so slippy!
we're dairy free for Austin too and soya free now as the milk we'd been giving him made him sick. But at least having the prescribed formula again means that's he's definitely getting the nutrients as I was worried about the lack of calcium.
can an you get dairy free / soya free yogurts?

Oh Deb Tad, poor little thing, thats awful - just from one crisp - I can't believe it! To be fair I'd never have thought that cheese and onion crisps contained any milk - is it like milk powder in the flavouring or something? You just have to be so careful don't you? I bet your poor friend felt bad…easy mistake to make though.
I have a close friend who has just been diagnosed as Coeliac and I'm finding myself constantly shocked by how much food contains gluten, so it must be the same as you with the dairy stuff. It's also a shame that they dairy free products aren't tastier for him…hopefully they will improve and make some yummy dairy free chocolate and yoghurts he can enjoy.

So hard when they don't understand. Hopefully it will be something they will grow out of fingers crossed.... At least its a lot easier these days with better alternatives 10-15 years ago it must've been so much harder
