    Ok....Soy I don't feel, is any worse than formula.  Formulas can cause just as many problems as soy, and you child has been on formula for quite a while now.  Baby bellies are sensitive. If your child can't have milk that is fine...but supplement.  In foods, try chocolate or strawberry milk. My son will only drink strawberry milk. 

    If you are against any of this....don't give your child milk at all.  Juices and flavored waters, but make sure the "milk nutrients" are being gotten in other foods.

    If you want to do something, change pedis.  I am not a fan of docs. I am more of a holistic healer, natural living kind of gal.  So for me if I didn't like what the ped was saying I would walk out.  Pointless to deal with someone who doesn't want to give the proper attention to a situation or child.  So just switch.  And there are many in all areas, I am sure you can find one you like.

    yes, find another pediatrician...... if it truely is a milk allergy it can be a problem. If it is the  milk then she will have problems with chocolate and anything else containg milk! You definately need to get a ped that will take you and your daughters care seriously! I would never blow off my patients like that or their parents concerns... you are her mother and her primary care giver and you know when somethings ot right! keep a diary of what sets of a reaction and what she had and how much of it and what time of day and what reaction she had then take it to the new ped and then they can send you to an asthma immunology specialist that will know exactly whats going on and hgow to treat it! the milk allergy is not that uncommon. Until then lactaid and soy are wonderful alternatives in moderation just the same as you would regular milk! Formula however is not. due to the higher calorie content and iron content it isnt best to use later due to the calories and iron recieved form their diet! if you really want formula instead there are alternative foraulas for toddler ages1 to 2 years! Good luck!

    I dont understand this...what is so bad about soy...its organic and natural.  There are so many added hormones to milk, unless you are buying organic milk at 6.00 a gallon, then you are getting all sorts of things in your regular milk. 

    As far as a doctor, if you dont like your doctor, change.  I dont take everything my doctor says..I cant give my 2 youngest whole milk because it goes right through them.  We go from formula to 2% milk.  Usually I have to get some soy milk and mix it with 2% until they get a little older and stop having problems with diarrhea from milk.  I do what is best for my kids and I only know what is best for them.  I can take recommendations from my doctor, but there is no law stating you have to do what your doctor is saying.

    I would be very cautious of soy also.  As a whole food it can be good, but not too much of it.  The way it is broken down to be made into tofu and many other products is harmful, not to mention its estrogen levels are high. 

    Goat milk is much easier for humans to digest (and better for you) than cow milk.  Some other alternatives to cow milk are hemp milk, almond milk, and rice milk.

    And yes, you definately need to see a  dif. pediatrician.  I would be very concerned about the fact that she doesn't take the allergy seriously - what else will she not take seriously in the future?  You need a dr. that will listen to your concerns.

    I just wanted to throw out another suggestion.. Rice milk. I am not sure where you can find it though and Lactaid has helped my intolerance to dairy products alot. My niece had the same reactions to cows milk your LO did until recently and now she is able to drink cows milk.  Wish you the best of luck and you may want to find a new ped if they arent taking you seriously.

    1st of all - find a new doc and second - Lactaid is great.  My daughter was allergic to me and milk so I gave her soy forumla which worked well but when she was older lactaid was perfect for her.  She never had any issues with it.

    If your daughter has trouble breathing on milk, do NOT do lactaid milk.  Its a protein problem, not lactose intolerance.  Trouble breathing is a sign of anaphylaxis and you need to get her in with an allergist.  Allergies are nothing to mess with.  My son is on hemp milk due to multiple food allergies, including milk and soy.  He does great on it, and we make it ourselves.
