And probably good riddance. Last week, we saw Oscar's pediatrician because we'd noticed a tiny bit of blood in his stool. The pediatrician suspects that it's a reaction to the milk protein in my diet. Apparently it's common for infants to be unable to digest dairy until they're 6 months old or so. It's not an indication of a later milk allergy for Oscar, thank goodness.
So it means I'm off dairy for the next several months. So far, it's OK. The downside: all the frozen meals we stocked up on for the postpartum period have cheese or cream sauces; I haven't been able to find soy ice cream yet (thanks to Angela for recommending some good brands, though!); cheese substitutes suck; my DQ Blizzard Fan Club coupon expired. The upside: we have our CSA (community supported agriculture) fruits and veggies, giving us lots of healthy meal options; Adam is a very willing and capable chef who feeds me well sans dairy; I'm not getting all the bad parts of the dairy I usually eat (cholesterol, fats and stuff).
It can take up to two weeks for the blood to disappear from the diapers, but so far, so good. Oscar's two-month check up is on July 2, so we'll know more then.
