  • Wonder if she's lactose intolerant. Maybe try lactaid milk (lactose free milk) or lactase supplements (ask your ped if it's okay) and see if that helps.

  • dairy allergies do not always present themselves the first time it is introduced, or even immediately... if her system is not used to dairy, why introduce it at all? try using soymilk... nutritionally speaking, it contains all of the same key components, and more- without the obvious possibility of reaction, since you already know your little one is soy tolerant. it could also very well be acid reflux, which is quite common, and dairy aggravates it. try taking the dairy away for a short period, and see if it subsides.
