As of yesterday I have five weeks(ish) until Josiah makes his entrance into the world!  If he is anything like his big brother that actually means that I have four weeks left!  All of a sudden I'm feeling way behind in preparing for my little man!

When Caleb was diagnosed with his dairy intolerance, it cleared up a lot about why he was such a difficult baby.  Since I was able to nurse him and I was drinking dairy, eating dairy, and bathing in dairy (ok, maybe not that last one...), his tummy was always upset.  Nate can't tolerate a lot of dairy either so it shouldn't have been a surprise that our son would take after his daddy.

I never want to go through a baby stage like Caleb's ever, ever again AND I don't want to be causing my son's stomach to be upset all day, every day, so I've decided to allow my body to detox from dairy in the next month in order to prepare me for nursing again.  I will gradually be adding dairy back into my diet once Josiah is here and our nursing pattern is set up to see what he can handle - whether he's more like his daddy and older brother or like his mama - but, at first, I'll be withholding all the creamy goodness from myself.

If I'm staying away from dairy, you better believe I have to find a few dairy free alternatives - coffee creamer being one of them!  This mama loves her coffee and I know I'll love it even more when I'm getting up multiple times a night with a newborn but I don't like coffee black.  Typically I would just use half and half but that's not going to be an option.  Thankfully, Silk Almond Creamer came into my life at just the right time!  We already use Silk Almond Milk for Caleb so it's just natural that I jump on the almond bandwagon too!

I saw vanilla and caramel options of the creamer and just knew I needed to try to make a dairy free caramel macchiato - one of my favorite drinks at coffee shops.  I adore the creamy goodness and love making it for myself at home for a fraction of the price!  Sure, it's dairy free but it doesn't seem like it at all.  I think I'll survive the next few months quite well.

Now, I have to admit that I'm not usually one to enjoy flavored coffee creamers.  I tend to be pretty sketched out by what additives are in the creamers so I was excited to hear that Silk dairy-free creamers are simple, delicious coffee creamers with no artificial flavors.  There is absolutely no cholesterol or saturated fat and the creamer is perfect for those with allergies since it's free of dairy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg, peanut, and carrageenan.  #Winning  Add all that to the fact that it's non-GMO and we're in business!  Seriously, this creamer doesn't taste fake at all!  I may keep using it even when I'm done nursing Josiah - it's that good!

I love that I can pick up Silk Almond Creamer in multiple flavors at Walmart while getting my typical groceries.  I'm not a fan of running in to multiple stores so the fact that I can get a necessity that is dairy free and TASTY at the place I typically shop makes my heart happy!
