Our sweet little bug

We just found out yesterday that our sweet little bug has an allergy to milk, well cow's milk in formula. So the doctor put me on a strict diet of only meats, fruits, and vegetables because she is now just going to be strictly breast fed. So no more dairy or anything with Whey which is about everything that we eat as Americans! So the pro's of this are: that Lilly's little intestines won't hurt her anymore, she will supposedly start sleeping through the night, she won't cry so much when we set her down, and I will lose weight!!!! :) The last few days have been so sad as we have watched her little body try and go potty and it hurts so bad, so I'm just thankful for doctor's and that mine was able to help us figure out what was wrong with our little bug. Anyway, we got this new camara and Josh started snapping photos last night and I thought they were so cute!

NAT she is so darn pretty :) I lost a TON of weight from breastfeeding. I was 130 when I got preg's and now I am 118. Amazing what it does for your body!! It is hard work and dedication but you can do it!! You don't even look like you had a baby, you look great already! Good luck! I am so glad you found that out about Lilly.

Oh!! So sad! It is so hard to see your little ones hurting. I'm glad that they were able to figure out what was wrong. She is so cute! Good Luck with the eating thing. That would be so hard!! But I know us mothers will do anything to make our babies happy! Love you guys! Hope she starts feeling better.

Poor baby... glad you figured out the problem. Gracie was allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, peanuts etc. when she was a baby. That was fun. Her birthday cupcakes made her break out in itchy hives. BUT, she grew out of ALL of the allergies. Good luck :)

Oh, that's so sad. Anders had a lactose intolerance too, so we put him on a special "gentle" formula for those kinds of problems. Breastfeeding definitely helps with the weight loss. I can't even believe the difference between after I had Arden (didn't breastfeed at all) vs Anders (breastfed until he was 4 months). The weight just melted off like magic! Hope it works out well for you.

Natalie,
Hey Sister Mills!! So I found your blog through Amy Hintze's and had to tell you how fun it is to see pictures of your sweet family! Your little Lilly is too precious! What a cutie! It's so fun to read about everything you're doing too.
Good luck with breastfeeding. I nursed my son exclusively until he was 14 months-whew! It's a huge commitment and can be challenging at times, but it does have its benefits!
Sure love you girlie!

Welcome to my world my friend. Except you are lucky and can produce the milk. I can only produce the $56 bucks each week for my blasted formula. I'm grateful for it though. I'm glad she's feeling better.
