    I recently read that goat's milk has less casein than cow's milk, so if your child was reacting to casein, you might be able to drink goat's milk without it bothering her.

    According to Wikipedia, royal jelly "is 67% water, 12.5% crude protein, including small amounts of many different amino acids, and 11% simple sugars (monosaccharides), also including a relatively high amount (5%) of fatty acids. The main acid is the 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid or 10-HDA (about 2 - 3%).It also contains many trace minerals, some enzymes, antibacterial and antibiotic components, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and trace amounts of vitamin C,[2] but none of the fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E and K."

    None of those components are likely to be problematic.

    I don't think you can ever be perfectly certain- there are too many variables. The best way to get a sense of whether or not dairy bothers your child is with repeat eliminations and repeat trials of dairy. If your baby ALWAYS has suspicious symptoms after you eat dairy, then it's likely that dairy is a problem.

    Yup, momma hunches is where it's at because there is no better diagnostic test. The problem with hunches is they are often wrong, which is why you get all science-y and do repeat trials of the suspect food. That way you're backing up your hunch with data.
