I Scream for Ice Cream

My daughter appears to be sensitive to ice cream. I can eat a bit of dairy here and there, but ice cream seems to be her nemesis. I made this Pampered Chef recipe for cobbler last night and I had gotten some Haagen-Dazs free with a coupon at the grocery store and so I partook. I had a nice big scoop of cobbler and a small scoop of ice cream for dessert last night.

My poor baby woke up crying and gassy about 2 am. She kept falling back asleep, but restlessly as I rubbed her belly for about 45 minutes until she finally settled back into a good sleep. I do feel the need to mention that Smug-Hub only rolled over and pulled the covers up, but never woke to her pitiful cries.

I have to keep dairy to a minimum and no more ice cream until she is finished nursing. It’s hard to think about never eating ice cream again, but seeing her uncomfortable breaks my heart and no food item is worth her being in pain.

I am determined to be a great parent, not just a good parent or an ok parent. I want to be great and letting her suffer so I can eat something delicious is just stupid. That being said, I really like ice cream and I was really hoping that she would not have a problem with it and I would still be able to eat it (insert whining voice).

  1. dude i'm so there. People keep telling me that dairy can make my baby's ear infections more frequent and adds to his congestion...but dairy is a HUGE part of my diet! I don't know what I'd eat if I didn't have yogurt, and milk, and cheese!
