MILK ALTERNATIVES
My 4 year old is allergic to diary. She has been on Cow and Gate, Lactose Free formula but the co has now discontinued this product. I tried giving her soya milk. She did not react to it for 3 days, but then vomitted for 2 nights. I have now stopped this. I need suggestions for milk alternatives, as she needs the milk for cereal.I was thinking of putting her back on the Nan HA, but wonder if it will be nutrious enough. Also give suggestions for alternate sources of calcium.

Brenda, are you sure the vomiting was due to the soya? Have you tried using it again? Let me know as a new question (to ensure that I get it) and we’ll take it from there. Good luck.
