Definitely stop giving her anything that you know is making her sick. Talk to her doctor about allergy testing and a referral to a nutritionist, so that you can make sure her diet has a balance of all the right nutrients in foods that won't give her a bad reaction.

Am also suggesting Centrum Kids as A Multi Mineral/Multi vitamin supplement after you check with a Doctor ..And Of course try and get something that has DHA and Omega 3 ..vitamin wise for her . My daughter has also been weird with milk she now uses NIDO but not often ..and not only that she was a preemie so we always worried but she is a very healthy kid cause we make sure she eats all other things ..veggies and fruits ..her food , less juice and lots of water .. make sure she is healthy .. my kid is 3 and she is awesome .. U did not say how old your child was either ...that's why I would always suggest Doctor advice first ok .

I don't believe you've mentioned how old your child actually is so I'm not really sure on a specific suggestion. However, there is lactaid but some people have adverse responses to that like diarrhea. There is almond milk of which is tasty but if there is an allergy to almonds; no. There is coconut milk, and I'm not speaking of the one in the can. :). Soy and rice milk you've mentioned, I believe...so, I would say go to Whole Foods or a true health food store and explore some options if you want a milk, specifically. I hope you find something. I have the same issue as your child, actually, but I found out its an allergy to an organism in latex that is also associated with fruits, gluten, and a plethora of other foods.

Seek out her Pediatrician and make sure she is tested to see why or if you have clearly tried the different variations of Milk just don't give your child milk anymore. but make sure and buy your kid a good Multi Mineral/Multi vitamin supplement.

Until you can figure out other things, keep up with the rice water, and add rice cereal and mashed banana. That is what we started my daughter with. I'll give youthe journal formal I used as well. I had to document everything which went in--how she did--and what came out. (So much fun.)

This can be so frustrating. My daughter couldn't even tolerate my breast milk. The problem was corn (eaten by the cows) in the milk, foods that I ate, in the soy formula, corn sweetner in the formula. She also had problems tolerating all forms of glutten. Even fruit juices will often be sweetened with corn syrup. Talk to your doctor about alternate diets that fit her nutritional needs and her age. If your baby can do solids, that may expand the diet a bit more.



There is a hypo allergenic formula sold at Target (maybe other stores too). The cheapest form is Similac Expert Care Alimentum Powder - 16 oz.-- it runs about $30.00 a can. It is completely corn and glutten free. But talk to your doctor before you do anything different. I hope this helps. If you post a little more about your daughter's age and other foods she tolerates well, I will pull out the recipes which worked for my daughter when she was that age. We had to use natural, unsweetened peanut butter--it was sweetened with corn syrup. You are going to become an ace label reader.



I will post the strategy we used for my daughter later tonight. I have to dig it out of a box in the back of the garage!
