Dairy-Free Meals for Breastfeeding Mamas

When Lawson was born, I tried to limit dairy for the first month since I had read a lot of babies are sensitive to dairy. Come to find out, Lawson can eat pretty much anything.

With Sybil, I started out the same by limiting dairy. I cut out milk, butter, yogurt and cheese. We quickly discovered Sybil had a more sensitive stomach. She struggled with painful reflux and gas and still does at seven months old. I never imagined I’d be limiting dairy for so long. (I say limiting rather than eliminating since dairy is in so many items. I try my best not to cook with dairy but realize there’s likely some in items I eat when out.)

I’ve found a few go to dairy free meals that have become mainstays in our weekly rotation. Here are my favorites:


Crockpot Italian Turkey Meatballs (served with spaghetti squash)
