Does Anyone Know About Kosher Food

My dd was just diagnosed with a severe sensitivity to casein, a milk protein, using IgG testing. So we're going to eliminate casein from her diet, which of course pretty much rules out milk, butter, etc. I realize that IgG testing may or may not be entirely scientifically reliable, but with all the discomfort and fatigue and pain that she experiences, we're willing to try this. In reading about casein, an article mentioned that Kosher dairy items do not contain casein. The article just kind of casually said that there are Kosher...

Sippy Cup for Weaning from Breastfeeding?

Hi moms, My daughter has been exclusively breast fed for the past 11 months and I am preparing to wean her in a month and am wondering if any nursing mothers can recommend a good sippy cup to wean with. She drinks water from an Avent sippy cup right now with meals, but she doesn't really like this cup all that much. Thanks in advance for your help!

11 Month Old's Decrease in Fluid Intake and Constipation

Once again, I am tapping into the collective knowledge and experience of this awesome group! My 11 month old girl is not taking in as much fluid as she used to and is constipated. She used to take about 14 ounces of formula a day, plus what I mixed in with her and her twin brother's cereal. I also offer water in a sippy cup, which she only takes a couple sips of. Lately, her formula intake has declined to about 8 to 10 ounces a day. She is having at least 1 BM a day, but she cries/wails when she does it. It is a lot firmer than her...

My 13 Month Old Is Picky, picky...picky!

My 13 month old little guy is ALL boy, except for his eating habits. Ever since he's realized he can eat what mommy is eating (to a point), that is all he wants. But then when I sit him down in his high chair, he sometimes puts the food in his mouth, then spits it out. He will drink his bottles like they are going out of style as many times as he can during the day and will throw tiny fits unless he doesn't have his bottle (whole milk of course), or get whiney until we give them to him. He will eat some foods (cheerios, pastas of every...

1 1/2 Year Old Refuses to Give up Bottle

I have a stubborn strong willed independant 1 1/2 y.o. who refuses to give up her bottle. I have pretty much gotten it down to only a bottle at nap times and bed time. The thing is she will drink water and juice from her sippy cup, but if I put milk in it she will throw and refuse to drink. To add to that she will not drink her milk cold it was to be warmed just a little bit. I have tried having her throw her bottles away and telling her she's a big girl. But then she just wont drink any milk and I can't have that she still needs all the...

Weaning from Bottle

My son will be 1 next week. He still takes 4 bottles a day. Each bottle is between 6 and 8 oz. He also still wakes up in the middle of the night for a bottle also. This one is about 5 oz. I would like to start weaning him from the bottle. When is a good time to do this and how do I do it? I started giving him a sippy cup when he was 6 months old, but he still won't drink out of it. He just plays with it. Any ideas to get him to drink from a sippy cup? Thanks!
