So today i finalized my decision and i'm gonna start giving her rice milk now and totally wean her to it when she's a year. I bought a can of Hypoallergenic non milk,soy or anything formula it's $20 for a tiny can enough to make 12 bottles.
It's horrid, i made one bottle for her to try in the car and she gagged and i tried it while driving, it i wasn't on the highway i wouldve pulled over and vomitted. It's horrid.
So rice milk it is. I'm just so worried about the lack of fat, b/c that's all the interenet talks about is the lack of fat not being good for babies. SO how bad is it lacking in fat? how much supplementation of fat does she need? and what types of things can i give her? Besides advocato i know that's one thing. Thanks.
My son is lactose intolerant and he drinks rice milk. He just loves it. You can even get it in chocolate. He eats soy cheese, and soy yogurt when we can get it. Avocado is a good food to give, so are different kind of nut butters (sunflower seed butter, or SunButter, is a good one for kids prone to allergies), whole grain pasta, various kinds of meat. If she is able to eat fish, that's something that is very nutritious and has lots of the good fats and oils. Good luck!

I just wanted to add, come on over to my group, Funky Mamas of Toddlers, and see if you think you'll fit in. I bet you'll get a lot of good support there :)
