Mommy T's adventures; bringing up Baby T

Cm52 | #AtoZ in 100 words

Adam cast one last look at the trophies lined up – a wizard in Biotechnology. He winced as the needle pierced him. The poison soon turned his skin black. His heart was already the same.

His dying eyes fell on the framed newspaper story, ” Dr Greaves wins Nobel prize for work on high yielding milk in cows: formula Cm52” The same formula which gave birth to a generation of children unable to digest anything other than mother’s milk. Liquid gold was now a precious commodity. Society was in chaos.

But today CM52 won. It finally put Dr Greaves to sleep – forever.

I am a mother of a child who suffers from dairy allergies. No one else in our family – both sides, has ever had a history of this. It is something that has manifested in this generation. We have no plausible explanation as to how or why it has appeared in our little boy. But we are not alone. Dairy allergies are a frequent condition today and many children have it. Man’s tampering with nature, genes and science is the only place where we will find the answers and sadly where the problem also lies.

This fictional blog post is a part of #AtoZ in 100 words series where Nikita of Mrs.Writes-a-Latte and a bunch of other bloggers will write 26 (or 52) posts this year on topics beginning from A to Z. A short and simple way of writing, seeking inspiration & learning from each other. And challenging – because it must all happen in 100 words. Plus a picture, perhaps.

Read all my posts from the #AtoZ in 100 words series here.

    Must have been difficult when your baby as diagnosed with dairy allergies. Kids already eat less and with the limits, it just gets more difficult. But I know you as a strong mother, and I am sure you are dealing with this in the perfect way.

      Thanks Sapna for your kind words. Especially difficult because we had to wean off breastmilk too due to dental issues

  2. Anchal

    I can understand your concern. Dairy allergies are very common these days.

    • mommyingbabyt

      Yes all too common

  3. Kamana Bhaskaran

    As a mom I can relate. Dairy allergies are tough on the little one and us!

    • mommyingbabyt

      It is indeed very difficult. Especially in Indian diet where ghee and butter and dahi are considered almost godly.

  4. Roopika

    So true… with such environmental changes, dairy allergies are so common amongst kids nowadays..

    • mommyingbabyt

      Yes i hear of so many cases these days

  5. anupriya

    now this one was a little unnerving. But kudos to you for braving through such an allergy. From what I read from your earlier posts about this allergy of your son, you are doing a great job. More power to you!

    • mommyingbabyt

      Thank you for your comment. You are most kind

  6. Neha Tambe

    That’s a nice story. A friend of mine who is in London was telling me the same thing the other day and she was clueless.

    • mommyingbabyt

      Me too Neha. Before I stepped into this part of life myself i was clueless about such issues.

    Not only diary allergies but there are many other allergies which kids today suffer from. As a mom of two grown up girls I see a lot for things which were not there earlier. I understand how tough it would have been on you but moms can tackle any situation bravely and sensibly.

  8. Disha Bhandari

    This gave me goosebumps. Even just the 100 word count! Dairy allergies are the worst. We had a scare early on in Baby Hashtag’s life but she was cleared. I cannot even imagine how it must be for Tasmai. But you are a good mom, I see you whipping up fun things for him to enjoy. Yay to that!
