I'm BFing my 3.5 month old right now and just found out she has a milk protein allergy. I have a few questions for moms who've btdt.

The doc says she might also have a soy allergy. I bake quite a bit and can't think of what to use for frosting cupcakes other than crisco...was wondering if there were any dairy (casein/whey) and soy free butter substitutes that taste great? THANKS

I just spent a whole weekend trying to deal with that! I didn't find anything this weekend, and ended up just doing butter with cream only. My ds's dairy allergy isn't nearly as bad as soy though, so it worked out ok for him.

As for substitutes....the only thing I can find is "Palm Oil Shortening" and it isn't in any major stores, just whole foods type stores. I found a recipe that called for coconut oil; but I'm not sure about that one.

There is also a dairy free/soy free butter, I don't remember the brand name, but it is a mail order/whole foods kind of thing too I think.

Earth Balance Natural Spreads

I use this for my daughter who is anaphylactic to soy protein and allergic to dairy. She does fine with it and I like the taste of it too. You can find it at any natural food store or most food stores that have a natural section to them. Not sure where you are from but here they sell it at Stop n Shop, Foodtown, Shoprite, Wegmans, etc.

And many times if they have a milk protein allergy, they also have a soy protein allergy.
