Babies Babies

Baby is almost one, barely eats anything.

Ds is 11 months old and eats very little food. He is still very attached to formula. Very soon I need to switch him to some sort of milk but I don't know what to do. He is allergic to dairy for sure but soy milk and almond milk seem to upset his tummy too. I just mixed it with oatmeal when I tried both and he went from sleeping 6 hours straight to waking every hour and screaming. Does he need to adjust or should I try something else?

I wish my son were still nursing. That would solve a lot of problems.

No need for any cow's milk as long as he's getting calcium & fat from other sources. Will he eat yogurt & cheese for you?

He's allergic to all dairy including trace amounts so no. He doesn't like much other than fruits, beans, and crackers. He needs something with the good days but I don't know what. My dd had no problems with almond milk but he seems to.

 Wow. That's really tough. Have you tried rice milk? I think they also make rice milk yogurt. I can't imagine, I'd be lost on what to feed him too :(

My son had this problem too except i nurse.i just kept offering him solids (the stuff he likes and anything else.) They don't know that they don't like something so offer everything. My sons favorite food is tomato so i give him spaghetti. He loves raw onion too. My son will be one tomorrow and month ago i was like you worried. Now i offer everything and he has improved alot.

You know formula is for babies until three right? They also make toddler formula too. No milk is needed now or ever for that matter.

well he is on alimentium and to be perfectly honest I cant afford it. I get wic and then buy one extra can with cast. They are 30 dollars a can. Wic will switch him to cows or soy milk next month. it looks like neither will work which is fine but I need an alterative that wont cost 30 dollars every 4 days.
