"She is made well!"

This is a quote from the Radiologist. Zaila has no physical abnormalities, so we are pretty sure she is allergic/sensitive to cow's milk. This makes a lot of sense because both Mesha and myself had a lot of trouble with cow's milk as babies and young children. So...Mesha is trying a dairy free diet and continue nursing. If this doesn't work out, then we try formula. We are definitely pleased that Zaila is "made well," but we have a difficult decision before us. We obviously want the best for our daughter (our opinion is that nursing is best), but living dairy free for a year may be a little more than we can handle. Pray wisdom for us in the first of many difficult decisions that parents have to make. We are so thankful for Zaila and feel blessed to be burdened with these type of decisions because it means we have a daughter to love and care about. We are totally head over heals about this pretty little girl! Thanks for all the prayers and all the support!

    Prayers for you guys on getting through this! Remember that there are a lot of products out there that are lactose-free that Mesha can still enjoy without upsetting Zaila's tummy - all sorts of milk and ice cream that is made from cow's milk with the lactose removed. That might just do the trick!

    All the best to you!

    And by the way, I'm lovin' all the Zaila pics! Keep them coming!

    I am sure someone already suggested this to you, but you should talk to Julie Knier, she went Dairy free for a year while she fed her babies! I hope everything works out. Formula is EXPENSIVE!
