  • after i quit breastfeeding my lo's i never gave them any milk at all. we have oatmeal if we want cereal. we get calcium from green food, we get vit d from the sun. humans are the only animals that consume milk beyond the infancy stage, and also the only animals to consume milk from another species. if you think about it, an adult cow needs to grow to 400 lbs, and adult human...100-200lbs. many say that due to the chemical nature of milk, the body can't get the nutrients that are added to it.
    my point is, you don't need a milk substitute. plan on getting most nutrients form vegetables, fruit, beans, whole grains and meat.
    water is fine to drink. in marketing schools they say the dairy council created the best ever marketing campaign...entering the school systems and convincing the public that milk was a dietary necessity.

  • You can give rice milk. But I would see an allergist to confirm the allergies.

  • I would suggest taking her to her pedi and seeing an allergist in regards to it. My son is allergic to milk and soy but his GI doctors put him on Neocate Jr. as a milk replacement. Necoate is an amino-acid based medical food.
