That night I thought long and hard about my lifestyle. Was I really not willing to give up some foods for the health of my baby? I was being a tad selfish, but who wouldn't be?!? Being a mom is hard! Pumping 5 times a day so your child can drink breast milk is hard!! Why did I want to add one more thing to that list? I respect all mothers who switch to formula because it is a TOUGH decision, but you have to do what's right for you and your family. However, I felt what was best for my 'refuse to drink special formula' child was to continue breast feeding. I made up my mind... I was going MOO-less. My self conscience was smiling and nodding her head in approval!
Being dairy (and now soy) free is not easy! I have called on many moms for support and help! I will continue to blog about our journey. Next up, I intend to blog about a week of Dairy/Soy free meals at the Hoehn household!
