If you're talking about lactose intolerance, another option would be goat's milk. My grandma has celiac disease so she's also on a dairy/gluten-free diet and it's all she uses. I give it to my 9-month old daughter as well and she loves it.

I'm on a no dairy diet for breastfeeding at first it was hard then it got easier. You just get used to reading the labels. Lots of labels have allergy warnings on them so it makes it easier. I have a page with all the different names of milk if you need it send me a message.

I've read online that you can replace milk in recipes with soy milk. I have done so with muffins and it worked fine. You can find some margarines with no dairy if you really search, but I haven't tried cooking with it just have had it on bagels and such.

I've found that lots of the 100 calorie packs don't have dairy except the obvious ones like the cheese nips. And if he can't have chocolate, like me, there are lots chocolate free kinds. I also really like the all fruit n nut bars you can get my favorites are larabars.

Oh I've also heard that trader joes (if you have them near you) is a good place to find dairy free food. I just haven't been able to make it to one.

I hope this helps.

My nephew has a dairy and gluten free diet, so my sister gives him almond milk.
There are also a lot of other alternatives, oat milk, rice milk, soy milk, etc

soy or rice products are substitutes for lactos-intolerant people. they're actually supposed to be healthier as well.
