  • Use lactaid free milk my son is allergic to milk but he can handle this

    Answer by Anonymous at 11:46 PM on Mar. 25, 2009

  • Anon, if it's a true milk allergy lactaid is NOT OK to give them. It'll make them sick.

    OP: There's rice milk, hemp milk, and almond milk. Emi is soy/dairy allergic too, so if she wants milk we'll be doing rice or hemp(when she's older). But milk isn't necessary. Since I'm BFing I eat coconut milk yogurt. It's really tasty. They also make coconut milk ice cream which is like 100000000x better than reg. ice cream, soy ice cream or rice dream.

  • Rice milk, almond milk, hemp milk. But truly, you don't have to give a milk substitute. Make sure his diet is balanced and rich in calcium, and milk is not necessary.
