My 2 yr old has been gluten-free and dairy free for a couple of weeks, and is finally having more "normal" poops. I know it is way too soon to reintroduce dairy into her diet... but how long should I wait? I am thinking that when I do reintroduce it, I will do it slowly, like starting with butter maybe, and then work up to cheese and see how much, if any she can tolerate. Any suggestions?

Hi Mel,

I had heard 6 weeks, and it took Ashlee about that long to get those "regular poopies" so that is what we went with. I also went gradually. I had heard that hard cheese and yogurt are easier to digest, so we started with just a little bit of those and over several weeks worked our way up. When I finally gave her plain milk I olny gave her a couple ounces at a time and only with food. Now she is pretty much back to normal! She doesn't want to live off milk like she did before, but I think she was pretty much doing that because milk was one of the few things in her old diet that didn't have gluten in it! Good luck!

I've been gluten-free for 13 weeks, and I still get occasional symptoms, so I haven't dared to introduce dairy...I'm going to wait another three weeks, or so...it's not worth it
