DS is 12 months and I'm ready to wean. I have been in need of my meds for several months now (and no, they truly cannot be taken while nursing). DS reacts to dairy (has eczema/reflux when I consume it plus he swells up and has mucous pouring from his nose if he eats it himself). The pediatrician recommended almond milk over soy. I understand why. I try not to take in too much soy myself.
But almond milk only has about 60 calories per serving (vs cows milk 120) and not as much protein.
Is almond milk the best alternative to cows?
Also, would I be entirely stupid to give him a bottle of it rather than a cup? I'm sort of in a rush to wean because I really need my meds. My other two kids were on bottles until they were about 18m (neither were ebf for quite as long because I worked).
