Anna Duggar is now speaking out about her son Mason having an allergy that fans didn’t even know about. Even though Anna isn’t on Counting On much anymore, the fans love to get updates on how she is doing and hear about the children.
Anna shares the details
Anna Duggar actually shared all of the details on an Instagram post. It turns out that Josh and Anna’s youngest son Mason has a dairy allergy. Sometimes children end up outgrowing this, but as of right now, it is something that Anna deals with on a daily basis. It wasn’t simple at all to figure out what was going on with him. He could have been allergic to several things, but they were lucky enough that it was just dairy.
She shared a video of Mason having pancakes and explained that this was his first time to get to have them. Anna had to make dairy free ones for her little boy to enjoy. The allergies showed up for him at just two weeks, but it took a while to find the right formula for their little boy.
This even caused some problems with nursing because they had to figure out what Anna Duggar couldn’t have either. Luckily, she shared that by six months they had it all figured out and Mason was able to nurse 100% of the time. His weight is also doing great.

Pancakes for a Saturday brunch may seem ordinary, but today at our house it is a big deal! It is Mason’s first time to have (dairy-free) pancakes! Yup, you may have guessed it…Lil Mason has a milk protein (aka dairy) allergy. Allergies showed up at 2 weeks, and caused us to switch to formula while momma cut dairy and other potential allergy causing foods out of my diet (i.e. gluten, corn, soy, eggs, nuts, chicken, & nightshade foods). Thankfully as we added things back into my diet we discovered Mason was only allergic to dairy, and by January he was back to 100% nursing and thriving — reaching 20lbs at 6 months! Sometimes in life we are faced with a mountain that seems impossible. We pray asking God to move the mountain, yet God wants us to climb it! Even though it is unexpected (and hard work) it is so worth it, God’s grace is sufficient for each step of the way! To have a mountain top experience you must first climb the mountain! So friends, whatever you’re facing today keep doing the next right thing — go take the next step! It’s totally worth it to keep going when you know you’re on the right track! P.S. Any tips for a good dairy-free pizza? 🍕😋 #littleduggars
Anna praises God in her post
Another thing that Anna Duggar did was praise God in her post. The family from Counting On is very religious and have made it clear that God is important to them. They don’t believe in using birth control and all have as many children as God ends up blessing them with in the end.

Friday we traveled 436 miles to reach Waco and had a wonderful visit at the Silos! Our kids had fun playing corn toss with dad, while mom went shopping! A group of us had an amazing lunch at Magnolia Table. After lunch was finished, Mason was ready for a nap and mom was ready for coffee (a mom’s nap in cup!). Thanks Chip & Joanna for your investment in Waco… our family made many special memories! #Waco #littleduggars
Anna Duggar ended up staying with her husband Josh through his entire scandal. There were several things that came out about Josh, but she didn’t leave his side. Josh spent some time in a rehab facility and then came back home again. It wasn’t long after that she got pregnant with Mason.
