Avoiding allergens while breastfeeding: Guidance for women who are avoiding dairy, soy, and/or eggs while breastfeeding from two registered dietitians

This guide is like having a registered dietitian and board-certified lactation consultant in your back pocket! Have you been told to eliminate milk, soy, and/or eggs from your diet while you are breastfeeding your little one? This news can be overwhelming to many women, and unfortunately is not as simple as cutting out the milk in your morning coffee. This guide was written by two registered dietitians/licensed nutritionists with lactation expertise to help you know exactly how to cut out certain allergens to support you on your breastfeeding journey.

We broke this guide down into simple tips to follow to eliminate dairy, soy, and/or egg. Included is a list of foods and ingredients that are often “sneaky” ways that these allergens show up in food, guidance on general lactation nutrition, recipes, specific brand names of “safe” foods, grocery shopping tips, cooking/baking substitutions, and much more.

This guide will help support you on your breastfeeding journey in a simple and convenient way.
