My 14mo dd does not like cow"s milk (any way shape or form, tried warm, mixed with BM, cold, alone, everything) and I've tried the enfamil next step formula, vanilla flavored, (even though she never even had formula ever) and she didnt like that either. I was thinking of trying a vanilla flavored soy milk the other day and my dh said no his sister says soy is bad for you..... is there any truth to this? I always thought soy was super good for you (especially women). Any experts on this matter? Anyone know of a good source of information about soy? I don't even know if my dd will like it, I just thought is was worth a try since I'm trying to wean her (her allergist strongly suggests I wean, due to her egg and peanut allergy, and her exzema)Answer Question
Uh yes... especially if you are giving it to her as a large source of nutition. http://www.optimumchoices.com/Soy.htm
Pretty crazy stuff. Stick to regular milk. She'll get used to it. Otherwise there are other kinds of milk when she grows into them, like nut milk and rice milk. :)

Kids don't need any milk so you don't need to worry about finding a substitute for cow's milk. If she doesn't eat 2 toddler servings of milk products (yogurt, ice cream, mac & cheese, ect) you should find foods she likes that have calcium, that are fortified with calcium, or give her calcium suppliment with vitamin D.
There are good things and bad things about soy. I used it on my kids cereal but I didn't give it to them to drink. I used cow's milk in cooking and they could eat 1 serving of milk products a day, all 3 are lactose intollerant. I gave them calcium fortified juice. That was before the AAP decided kids should only have 4 oz of juice a day.

You can find different kinds of "milks" in the health food sections of large grocery stores or in health food type grocery stores. These are NOT milk. It's ground and processed watered down whatever the main ingredient is (almond, rice, hemp, ect.). You can even make your own.
Kids, like everyone else, should drink only water. Start kids out early and that's what they expect to drink . Neat things to drink out of help. We live in the desert and I have a 20 mo grandson that I "feed and water".
