Milk Trial

My daughter is coming up on her second birthday which means that it has been one full year since her last reaction to cow's milk protein and eggs via breastmilk. She has actually never had either directly. Shortly after this reaction we got her tested for food allergies. I had learned via the elimination diet that she was sensitive to milk and eggs when she was just 4 and 5 months old. I avoided both for the next 6 months.

Now it is time for us to start challenging her with both food groups to see if she is still allergic. First up, milk. We are starting by giving her bread that has milk 'baked' into it. So far so good. Next week we will try yogurt or cheese and then go from there.

Next month, eggs.
