Paed removed child from milk
Hi all.

Please assist.My son's paed has insisted that we stop feeding my son milk whether it be soya or any milk which i find totaly strange as i bliv he still needs his calcium and iron.This was requested after we took him for some blood test seeing he was forever sick with stomach cramps.Turns aout he has a string of allergies.My son is 14months and has no teeth not even one yet he runs around like a 3year old.He was also diagnosed with asthma and enzecma which is currently being treated by advantene cream and some inhailer.He is currently having bronchitis and coughs a lot.What do u think could be the problem for all this?I have started giving him isomil as i felt he needs his calcium.So far he is reacting well to it.Do u think i am doing something wrong?My friend recommends infacare anti reflux as a supplement to his milk.How good is it?

Thanking you in advance

Continue on the Isomil. This is a good choice. Do not use the anti-reflux formula.It is a good idea to give him extra calcium. Speak to your pharmacist about this.
