The Lactose Intolerance Clearinghouse Has Moved.

My old website can be found at I am no longer updating the site, so there will be dead links. The static information provided by me is still sound.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or or or a whole lot of other places that Smashwords is suppose to distribute the book to. Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

I suffer the universal malady of spam and adbots, so I moderate comments here. That may mean you'll see a long lag before I remember to check the site and approve them. Despite the gap, you'll always get your say. I read every single one, and every legitimate one gets posted.

A "Breastfeeding-Friendly" Environment, with Dairy-Free Options

The U.S. is apparently not the only country in which otherwise sane adults grow hysterical at the site of a women breastfeeding her baby. New Zealand has the same problem.

Cure? A "breastfeeding-friendly" environment.

Adam Long started Koffee Kulture after women had been told not to breastfeed in other upscale cafés.

According to an article by Andy Hay on the New Zealand Herald website:

As well as allowing mothers to feed anywhere in the café, it provides a breastfeeding booth, so a mother can feed baby in private and keep an eye on siblings in the play area, Long says.

The café also offers gluten and dairy-free options, hosts a pram walking group and holds "bouncy castle days".

Other parent and child-friendly cafés have been popping up all over New Zealand as well.

Good for them. It's a trend we need to import.
