We do not charge for anything on our website. To my knowledge, we have the largest database of free recipes that can be searched by multiple allergens.
If you'd like to contribute, please use the "suggest a recipe" link in the right column. At this time, we do not have the website set up to accept additional authors, although this is always an option in the future.
When my baby was two weeks old, she started reacting despite my MSPI diet. I realized I had been cooking a lot of egg casseroles and things with eggs and found the egg allergy. The same thing happened with peanuts, tree nuts, coconut, caramel coloring, corn, and corn syrup. Every baby reacts differently. My son reacted by back-arching, fussiness, and sleeplessness. My daughter reacted by sleeplessness, fussiness, and green mucusy stools. Every baby is different.
Become an expert at label reading! I have made a "favorite products" list that lists several of the pre-made products I have enjoyed using due to their milk-free, soy-free, or egg-free status. I have color-coded what they are free of so that you can easily compare them to your child's intolerances or allergies.
We add new recipes on a weekly basis. We try to make about 5-7 new recipes per week and put them on the website.
The most common allergens are milk, soy, egg, peanut, treenut, wheat, fish, and shellfish. Other common allergens and intolerances include corn, gluten, citrus, beef, strawberries, etc.
MSPI stands for Milk and Soy Protein Intolerance. It is a condition that most children grow out of by age one.
Lactose intolerance is an intolerance to the lactose (or sugar part) of milk. Milk proteins are found in the following ingredients: cream, milk, milk solids, casein, whey, milk chocolate, lactalbumin, and sodium caseinate (found in non-dairy creamers).
I have found eating out extremely difficult. It is an absolute must to call ahead and talk to someone knowledgeable. If there isn't someone who seems knowledgeable about what is in their food, I don't eat there. Many chain restaurants have allergen charts that you can look at before dining out. Even these may not suffice if dealing with a less common allergen such as corn syrup. There are restaurants you can eat at - you just have to research ahead of time to find them!
I find most of my recipes in cookbooks or on websites. Some of the recipes are family recipes and some are ones where I have altered the original beyond recognition. All of the recipes are ones we have tried ourselves.
Because soybean oil and soy lecithin are fats, not proteins, many babies with MSPI or soy intolerances do fine with them.
Because I have never been on a gluten-free diet, I do not feel qualified to label anything as gluten-free. However, many of my recipes could be altered to become gluten-free if you found a flour substitute recipe to your liking.
