my son has eczema and always has and my other two aswell. we tried everything under the moon with him he was alligic to it all. so he was put on two allergie meds to help with itching and breaking out. we still deal with it at one we tested him with some blood for allergies he was reduced to fresh meat w/ watching what we season with, fresh veggies and fruit. so my heart goes to you. be very watchful of him....

I am allergic to dairy and even more allergic to soy and my daughter is on Nutramigen formula because she could not have either when she was born. She is doing great with it and if I could get goats milk where I live I would probably give that to her when she's a little older. But for the record Goats milk DOES NOT have the same protein as cows milk. I've spoken to many doctor's about this due to my own allergy. Also rice milk taste gross and I can not picture many kids or babies who would like it. I would try goats milk if u have easy access to it, It has a lot of nutrient like cows milk. Some babies n children do grow out of the allergy too, talk to his doc. I have found that I like unsweetened Almond milk, It is very good for u and very good for your heart too.

I've heard what Sam is saying...my friend's daughter was allergic to cow's milk so my friend gave her goat's milk and there were no problems from then on.
Also, I put my son on cow's milk at 7 months old and he's been fine.

my daughter is allergic to dairy and soy.. if he is reacting to cow products then go with goat milk.. from experience soy aint good for them everyone i know that has given there kids soy have had nothin but problems if u dont mind them having a constant upset runny grossly nappy i wouldnt recomend it.. people dont realise that as westerners our bodys are built to tollerate large amounts of soy but yet everything u buy has it in... i would try the goats milk water it down at 1st and introduce it u can also buy most places goat cheese and yogurt.. and rice milk yes they use it instead of soy and dairy but it is very very sweet.. hope this helps and if u would like more info u can inbox me..

I would not i would do soy or rice if you have a boy i would maybe suggest rice. Goats milk produces the same protein as milk. I would suggest calling your neutritionist at your clinic to talk it over . They are really helpful! Hope this helps
Are you not wanting to do formula anymore? Because that or breast milk would be best before the age of 1.
