Have any of you just decided not to do the milk challenge at all? Our DG girl will be 2 in June, and thus far we have turned down doing the 1 yr and 18 mo milk challenge because of serious reservations about what that could do to her body. She is quite content with her dairy alternatives, not to mention receiving enough calcium and other nutrients through alternative means. We really feel like there is no point to put her through that just to see, when I am not sure the outcome would change anything. We aren't big in dairy ourselves, so it isn't like she would be missing out on our lifestyle. Thoughts? We have almost come to a decision to turn it down. We are not big milk people anyway.
These are true stories and messages from moms I have received since I began this journey researching DG in 2008. Sadly I didn't start foldering the messages til 2012 but please see that many are in the same boat as you-confused and with many questions. The post is not to answer these questions specifically but to post to record the issues and questions for the public.
