I Don't Want To, But I Know I Have To

Boy, oh boy. There's SO much that phrase could be applied to in my adult life. Heck, even in my childhood.

I don't want to, but I know I have to add something on to all my ADRs.

And that's an allergy.

Let me back up.

I'm breastfeeding the baby, and super excited to be doing so. Honestly. Last time around with Nemo, we had a lot of issues, and I could never get him to nurse, so I ended up pumping exclusively for nine months. All I can think about while I'm writing this is how this is more than Tim probably ever wanted to know. But there you go, Tim!

Anyway, Nemo had a sensitivity to a protein in milk. Not lactose, but a protein called casein. Which meant that I couldn't consume anything with milk in it. So no diary, but also, no processed foods that contain milk. And for those of you who think that's not so bad, let me tell you how many things have milk in them.

Honestly, I think this is one of the things that helps me lose my post-pregnancy weight before I even start exercising, the fact that I'm so limited in regard to food / junk food.

Well, right around eight - nine months, Nemo grew out of that allergy, or sensitivity, so to speak, and he was able to have a formula that contained casein.

Why am I telling you all this?

Squirt has the same allergy. And since it entails a very gassy, unhappy, spit-uppy baby if I don't pay attention to what I eat, here we go again with the milk-free, dairy-free diet.

In all honesty, the older I've gotten, I've developed a lactose intolerance. So in reality, I shouldn't be having any of these things anyway, although yogurt (probably because of the cultures) never seemed to bother me, and I do miss it.

So, I've hesitated on it, because Squirt will be around seven - eight months when we go (and if he's like Nemo, potentially over the allergy by then), but I think I'm going to have to go ahead and add the milk/dairy allergy to all our reservations.

I need to acknowledge that it's not just for him, it's my own digestive tract that suffers, and really who needs two cranky babies on vacation.

It's just hard, because we look at all these online menus and think of things we'd like to eat, and it's going to be totally different for me. And I know that many chefs at the Disney restaurants are amazing when it comes to allergies, and that they'll even prepare special things, so that's heartening.

But just to give you and idea of how all-encompassing this allergy is, I'll give you a list of some of the things I have to avoid that might not think of.

Bread. A lot of bread, hamburger buns, hot dog buns, etc, contain milk.

French fries. Sweet potato fries.

Any dessert that has milk or butter in it.

We're knocking out a lot of my favorite Disney foods here. For those of you who don't know, I have a love affair going on with Casey's hot dogs, french fries, and I may or may not enjoy slathering said fries in that cheese sauce. Maybe if I'm lucky it's artificial.

Fortunately for me, I read that the Dole Whip is non-dairy, eh?

So, to those of you who have had to deal with allergies before, isn't there a special number or email that you can contact to request info about the quick service restaurants? I thought I'd read that somewhere.

In conclusion, I don't want to, but I know I have to add that milk allergy to my ressies. And I was all prepared to bite the bullet and do it today, when I discovered the system is still down.

Ah well. It'll happen, I promise!

Oh Kat, that just stinks about the milk allergy at Disney. I never even thought of it effecting things like french fries. I've been noticing myself as I get older that dairy effects me a bit too, although my issue seems primarily concerned with cheese.

Let me tell you how many ways I love cheese. :::sigh:::

Actually, Nana pointed out to me that she knew a girl when she was young who had to drink goat's milk, and it was because she was allergic to cow's milk, and some people do better with goat's.

So I'm thinking later, when Squirt isn't so little, I might try a goat's milk cheese and see how I do with that.

Because I LOVE cheese. I miss it. And french fries. But mostly what I miss is dessert.

YEA!!! I got a SHOUT OUT!!!!!!

Unfortunately, it was in the same paragraph as breast feeding and pumping!!!! Luckily, I'm a dad and I had to deal with pumping when our DD was a baby. So I know where you are coming from.

A few years ago my SIL went to Disney- she is highly allergic to gluten. I think Disney either sent her a list of food that was safe or to a special website before she left. While she was at each restaurant, the chef came out and listened to her concerns. She said it was reassuring that they cared and really took care of cooking her food with no contamination. She was very impressed with the way it was handled because many restaurants don't understand gluten allergies(though now it is becoming more common)

I think at CS my SIL asked to speak to a manager. The manager had a book with all the different allergies and what was safe to eat. I think your best bet is just to call and to speak to someone.

Yes m'dear.....Dole Whips are dairy free! Eat as many as you want.

One note about adding the allergy thing to your ADRs. It can take a while for a chef to come to your table to speak to you. I only put my tree nut allergy on one ADR because I don't want to waste the time it might take for the chef to see me.

Liam has problems with the milk protein but thankfully it's not so bad that is has to be out of his diet 100%. We just don't give him milk to drink and limit his cheese intake.

Disney makes handling an allergy so easy. The chefs are very accomodating. Just another reason why WDW is such a great place!

I'm also Lactose intolerant (well that's the easy version of what I have, I have, its a bit more complicated than that), but it's easy for me to deal with by taking a pill and avoiding massive amounts of dairy!!! So I feel you on that!!!

Ughhh...to No Casey's!

I have heard great things about Disney chefs and allergies so it should be easy peasy for you to put on your ADRs and find foods that will accomodate your diet!

From everything I have read, Disney is great when it comes to food allergies. Hopefully, you will be able to find out a lot about what items have dairy in them before you go, and then you can just plan accordingly.

Ugh to the food allergies. But I guess a diet without any bread would certainly enhance weight loss. I probably coudn't do that for myself, but I could for my kids.

I have a lot of IBS symptoms and I recently tried this product called Align. It is an industrial strength probiotic (and your mention of yogurt made me think of it). I don't have lactose intolerance per say, but my whole diet was causing issues with IBS. This supplement is absolutely wonderful and I have recommended it to a lot of my friends with IBS and they all give it a

From what I have heard Disney is amazing with all food allergies!

Good to know, thanks. That might factor into which ressies I put it on, depending on how I think the kiddos will do. Although we could always get Nemo an app while we wait.

That's good, at least you can you limit it and not have to eliminate completely. And, you never know, he might grow out of it.

Seriously! I've talked to my sister about this because she's recently discovered a gluten allergy, and I've told her about how wonderful they are at accommodating.

I'm hinting big time, but so far, she hasn't bitten.

I wish I could take a pill. Even for myself, you know, after I'm done nursing Squirt, but it doesn't work that way for me, the pill actually makes it worse. Long story.

Yes, to think that even though I really want to wing out in this trip, I'll have to be careful about planning where we eat.

I did find some bread at the grocery store yesterday without milk in it and I was SO excited!

And I know what you mean. It's hard to do it when you're thinking of just you, but when you've got a little one's digestive tract solely dependent on what you eat, it's a totally different story.

I've come to realize though that I need to do this for myself, because it's really not just him, and I need to take care of me so I can be around a long, LONG time for this kiddos.

My sister had IBS, or what she thought was such, and discovered that really, she has celiac. So she's on a totally gluten-free diet and it's made a world of difference for her, which is great.

It's amazing how we never even have to think of these things, and then suddenly develop them as adults.
