Since TJ was 4 weeks old he has battled every night without fail with what we were told was ‘colic’ & reflux.
Unfortunately, breastfeeding didn’t work out for us so we moved onto formulas.
He has been on 6 different formulas since and none of them have agreed with him.
Watching your baby in agony, inconsolable night after night and not being able to help was heart-breaking but it sent me on a mission to solve the problem.
Even after being told 100 times there wasn’t one having made many trips back and forth to the doctors, being made to feel silly and at times like crazy neurotic first time parents!
In children with non-IgE mediated cow’s milk protein allergy, skin prick tests are often used to diagnose, despite the child showing clear symptoms. Skin prick tests do not provide reliable results on a non-IgE mediated allergy to cow’s milk (or other foods). Here is why.
Sausage rolls are extremely popular as a party food (and everyday snack + addition to lunch) for both children and adults. Here in the UK they are generally made with puff pastry and back home in Denmark, they are made with ordinary white flour. I love both versions. However, I wouldn’t say they are particularly healthy.

Where often times in society we’re told to let calorie count or specific times dictate what and when to eat, intuitive eating means eating when you’re hungry or wanting food and letting your fullness and satiety guide you to stop eating.

Postnatal depression (PDN) affects more than 1 in every 10 woman and can be an extremely difficult time for both mother, baby and the wider family involved.
Many possible causes for PND have been suggested and there is no single reason to why this happens as it could be down to multiple factors, including a nutritional imbalance which I shall explain more about in this blog.
I can appreciate that the interpretation of food labels can be a chore but let’s look at it with positive eyes. At least the food industry is now legally entitled to state which allergens are present in foods. These are usually highlighted in bold. Milk is in virtually all cheeses, butters, creams and yogurts. For the Milk-Allergic Infant ( better known as cow’s milk protein allergy in the medical world)
Hypoallergenic formulas are used in the management of infants and children with cow’s milk protein allergy and are therefore used for medical purposes only.
These formulas have been produced in such a way that they do not contain cow’s milk.
