Hello! I have 3 children and all three have/had allergies. My 3 year old son has severe allergies and carries an epi-pen whereas my 2 year old "out-grew" his. My daughter is 7 months old and has been on soy formula. I breast fed her for 6 weeks. At 6 weeks, her skin flared up worse than my first born. I moved to soy formula and she did great. I tried dairy formula for a couple days several months ago and she was a different baby--very cranky and just not herself...so, back to soy. However, now every time I feed her a bottle she gets red patches all over her face and neck immediately upon eating. Her skin is not raised, just blotchy and it goes away pretty quickly. Has anyone used other types of formula? I assume there is rice and oatmeal out there...any recommendations?
