What do I do when my son is allergic
to both lactose and soy?
I did at first but now he's on formula.
My son is allergic o both those. I had to eliminate 7 major allergens to continue breast feeding
All my kids are allergic to dairy and soy. I elminated both from my diet long ago so it wasn't an issue. But if you formula feed your opitions are honestly pretty limited. My oldest was formula fed and honestly we never found a formula she could tolerate.
Quoting larissalarie:It's almost certainly milk protein, not the lactose :-)
If you breastfeed, you cut every single trace out of your diet. If you formula feed, you'll have to try the special formulas they make for that (possibly the prescription type). If baby can't handle those, you'll have to look at cutting the things from your diet and relactating for baby.
if you had a problem with breastfeeding you could contact the La leche legue. they may have suggestions to get back in the game, or looking getting donated breastmilk. I believe there is a facebook group about such things. Honestly this should be a question for your peditrition. you just need to be super diligent in reading lables and inquiring what is in foods when ou go out to resturants. It is certianly a life style you will need some getting used to. good luck to you mama.
they make hypoallergic formula i know one is Enfamil Nutramigen, and Similac Expert Care Alimentum my sisters daughter was on the alimentum. My ds is on the enfamil gentlease which is a partially broken down milk protien because he was allergic to the milk protien whole some babies can do the broke down protien, talk to your doc
