Does anyone else have a child allergic to cow's milk and soy milk?

Just looking for someone that can relate to this issue and talk about it. Cause nobody I know has this same situation

  • My daughter had an intolerance to cow's milk and somewhat to soy. I gave her almond milk instead. I gave her soy cheese and yogurt with enzymes to help with digestion, no more than once a day. I recently had her tested and found many other foods that she was intolerant to. We cut those out too. After a few months we stopped after no change in behavior (sleepy or agitated) attributed to the foods. After 2 years mosly cow's milk free with enzymes, we added back milk and then phased out the enzymes. She is 7 now and can eat mostly what she wants. Hold in there, often food allergies change as a child gets older.

  • No sorry I don't. My dd is just allergic to cows milk. My mom however is allergic to cows milk and soy milk. She drinks Rice Milk. Maybe give that a try? They also make almond milk and hemp milk. Good luck.

  • Past the age of two, this shouldn't be an issue, water is all we need to drink. We use mostly rice milk for cooking; I like hemp milk, but it is too expensive. I am considering getting a soy milk maker; it can be used with rice, oats, hemp, etc.

  • Not personally, but I had a child in daycare that was allergic to soy and dairy. His mom gave him oat milk. There is also, almond milk, goats milk too.
