Going Dairy Free

My new baby has colic so I am going to try to go dairy free. I had done it before but at the time I lived close to whole foods and was able to get vegan cheeses and butter. And also at that time I wasnt concerned with soy so I used soy milk in cooking. But I hear babies shouldnt have that much soy and I cant readily get vegan cheeses and butter. So I am taking suggestions on substitutions!! Anyone else dairy free??

Side note: I dont eat a TON of dairy right now anyways because I am lactose intollerant but I am able to eat a lactaid pill and be ok. But apparently its the protein in milk and not the lactose that bothers the babies.

Soy also has a lot of added hormones....and if i remember correctly its worse for boys because its like estrogen or something like that. Anyways, I just know soy is bad for babies.

chocolate chips are actually a dairy product. I would have to omit that.

How about rice or almond milk instead of soy?
