Amy ~ My family has been dairy free for 6 months. My daughter had an ear infection at least once a month and I had a sinus infection once a month. My son had thick green mucus all the time. I read an article that suggested going off dairy to see if it helped. My daughter has not had an ear infection since. I have had 1 sinus infection, which I can actually trace to frappicinos! My son's nose is clear for a super change. We will never drink or use cow milk again!
A follow-up note from Amy: "If [this story] helps another mother solve this problem and saves a child the "tubes" for ears I will be ecstatic."
