Anything that says milk, casein, or whey are no no's. And creams and butters are dairy too. :) most baby food is the food and water and fairly safe.

Yes, definitely don't give her any dairy!  At that age, her digestive system can't process milk, and it could lead to anemia, among other things. 

Most baby foods don't have dairy in them, but it's super easy to make your own.

Once my kids could get food into their own mouths, I started giving them small chunks of various foods like bananas, avocado, baked sweet potato, steamed carrot spears, etc.

at 7 months babies can't have dairy except either formula OR breast milk-  they don't have the flora in the gut to break down the milk protein and can get something called NEC (necrotizing enterocolitis)  formula i dairy but the proteins are processed in a way that is tolerable to their gut-- so no yogurt, cheese milk)  but just baby food like stage one carrots  won't have dairy in them----

Just cook and mash up your own veggies for baby foods.  Formula or breast milk should be her main source of nutrition with the other foods to experiment with.   Why did he tell you to stop dairy?  Did the baby develop an allergy?

the GI went in and did a biopsy of her stomach and esophagus and they show were she has an allergy to something so he switched her formula to nutramigen but that was all he said so when i talked to her pediatrician about the formula since it is for cows milk allergy i asked about other foods that have dairy in them like mashed potatoes and stuff that you can feed an 7 month old which her dr said she could have cause it doesn't have a lot of it in it so have to all that and the pediatrician want her to go to and allergist now but the GI just said to switch her formula and  that was it so just looking for  info thank you

 All you need is a crock-pot to make baby food

The simple things in life are often the best and in this case, fruits and vegetables offer the simplest and most nutritious food your baby can have.

 Most of your stage one foods will be dairy free. I found it easier to make my own anyway.

Most baby foods, at least stage 1, should be dairy free, but much safer and cheaper to make your own.

In this case listen to the GI. I had dairy sensitive babies. I couldn't have anything with any form of dairy (we ebf'd.) And any formula that they did get was soy. The nutramigen is broken down in a way that even dairy sensitive babies often can handle it. Or you can call and ask the GI about soy. No dairy - cheeses, caseins, lactose, lactase, milk, yogurt. There are other terms for dairy that is more hidden, but you would have to google those because it's been over 5 years.
