dairy products

I have NEVER had an issue with dairy products. However through my pregnancy I feel as though I'm almost developing a mild intolerance to it. It wasnt bad in the beginning, but now at 37 weeks any time I take in dairy it upsets my stomach. Kinda makes me afraid that my little one may also have an allergy to dairy then since I plan to breast feed. Any one else ever encounter this??

My close friend had that happen to her. Her body got to the point where she couldn't eat dairy or wheat products. Both her girls were the same way once they were old enough to eat stuff like that. It has taken time but now all of them are able to eat dairy and wheat. It doesn't necessarily mean your baby will be lactose intolerant, pregnancy just causes your body to do some wacky things. Try laying off or at least cutting down while you are pregnant and then slowly add it back in to your diet afterwards. If you decide to breastfeed and you start dairy back into your diet and you notice your baby getting eczema, it could be a sign that he/she is allergic/intolerant.

It's possible but nothing to worry about until you know for sure. You can still bf if baby has an intolerance by avoiding dairy in your diet. Your milk is very different from cows milk. The baby would exhibit reflux, rashes, or bloody stool if it has an allergy or intolerance.

Every pregnancy I hace had, I couldnt tolerate cows milk. It really upsets my stomach. I niw only drink LACTAID. Its really good and lactose free. Still has vitamin D and calcium too. Worth a try.

I was able to drink milk until this week.  I am 15 weeks pregnant.  I am glad to see that this is not uncommon.  It's weird how the body develop even more strange changes as the pregnancy progresses.
