big dairy, and almond allergy slight soy allergy which milk?

Our allergist has previously advised us to allow our daughter to drink/eat soy, even with her slight allergy, but I am thinking she may do better without it al together. she has sleep issues, and red/pink around her eyes, and is often times congested. I think transitioning her to another type of milk might be helpful, but what and how? She is a picky eater :-/

  • We use rice milk. My son doesn't like goat's milk, but he will eat goat & sheep cheese. Rice Dream Ice cream.

  • I've heard that goat's milk can be hypoallergenic. So can rice milk. If your daughter is over the age of 2 you can talk to a nutritionist about how to get her enough calories and nutrients without any kind of milk. If she is under the age of 1 EleCare formula is the least allergenic formula out there. You can get a prescription for it from your pediatrician.

  • Goat! I have a nephew that can't have soy, corn, dairy, sugar, or gluten. He loves his goat milk and cheese!
