Okay, so my daughter is on formula and we recently found out that she shares my milk allergy. When she has cow milk she has trouble breathing (just like mommy). However, when we put her on soy she started throwing it up. So if I can't give her milk based, and she is throwing up soy, what do I give her?!

Update: This is what I have tried so far.

Similac - Difficultly breathing
Similac Sensitive - Difficulty breathing
Similac Organic - Difficulty breathing
Similac Opti Grow - Difficulty breathing
Similac Alimentum - Breathing was better, but still raspy & vomiting
Similac Soy - Vomiting
Enfamil AR **DR recommended**- This was the worst that I saw her breathing get, very scary
Enfamil Soy - So far she only threw this up once, I don't know if she just needs time to adjust?

It may be time for you to find a new pediatrician. My nephew has milk allergies that have gone undiagnosed for 10 1/2 yrs. He is now 11 and finally being treated. They did allergy testing on him, and sure enough he is allergic to milk.
If you insist on keeping this doctor, ask him for a referal to see a pediatric allergy specialist.

Hello Little Miss, thank you for responding. I have talked to my pediatrician about this. He says that he doesn't like soy products and thinks I'm off my rocker about her milk allergy. I know that milk allergy's are uncommon, but I have had mine since birth which never went away and only got worse and her symptoms (difficulty breathing and over production of mucus) are the same as mine. Every time I go in to see him he hands me a new formula with milk as the first ingredient, no matter what I say to him about it.

There are prescription formulas that the doctor can describe. Call the pediatrician and speak to them about your options. Have you told the pediatrician what happens with soy and milk yet? If not, please do asap!
