  • I would not switch her to cows milk until the doctor gives the okay and then follow his recommendations for the switch. My son was on soy for constipation issues and we just switched him with no trouble.

    My 10 month olds were already on all table foods so eating what we were eating.

  • When my oldest was 10mths he was on lactose free formula until a week before his 1st birthday, then i switched to cows milk and it went fine.

  • The best thing (and I know it sounds weird, but it really is the closest to mother's milk) is goat's milk! You can find it at the grocery store in cans. If you can find someone with goats in your area and get it fresh, it is better. Cow's milk is bad and soy is worse! I would never put a child on soy milk as it causes all kinds of problems. I really hope this helps!
    P.S. If it makes you feel any better, I have 5 doctors in my family...and they all agree on this one! ;)
