My son suffered with a dairy allergy which mean that some of the first signs were eczema, bad rashes and 'baby acne'.
Since discovering his allergy and weaning him onto a dairy-free diet, his skin is much better and we can take advantage of all the fantastic natural products out there for baby skin, such as Kokoso coconut oil (which I give samples of to all my baby massage mums! We interviewed the founder, Lauren, for our partner website Maternity Leave Life too) and Nom Nom Skincare, produced by another local mum and baby massage teacher.
I've also written a feature for Mode UK about dairy-free recipes, for any other mums out there coping with this issue. It's hard enough to think about dairy-free meals for yourself when breastfeeding, let alone something dairy-free to feed a weaned toddler!
