The Dairy Dilemma

The little guy's dairy issues have me totally stumped.  Upon going back to work, we had to begin supplementing breast milk with a little bit of formula.  Not much, maybe 8-12 ounces a day.  I was worried because of his dairy intolerance that he would not be able to handle the whey protein.  Luckily, he seemed okay.  He spit up more, but was comfortable.  I assumed he had outgrown his dairy issues.

So last Friday I decided to test Liam's intolerance by eating a yogurt (and some chocolate too).  BIG MISTAKE!  The next day, not only was there projectile vomiting, he was shrieking in pain as well.  It sucked.

The confusing part is why he tolerates the formula but not a yogurt filtered through my body.
