Oh, a note--use rice milk only. Almonds and hemp are closely related to soy and can cause a reaction. Rice Dream has no problem ingredients. It needs to be fortified to be used as a formula though. Whatever sweetners you use, be sure they are sugar cane based--not corn.

We used to have to make a rice based formula for my niece because she was allergic to everything. I dug around and found a similiar recipe on line. it is British, so some of the measurements might be different.

Please check with your doctor before giving this to your child.

Hope this helps.

Rice based formula recipe follows:

Rice Milk Infant Formula

Combine the below ingredients together and mix well, I prefer using the Magic Bullet for this job. Store in a glass container in the fridge for up to 48 hours, than discard. Try making a 1/4 of the batch first to see if your baby enjoys this option.

4 cups Rice milk (Earth’s Own Ryza brand Original flavor is my first choice) you can also use Coconut milk (not in the can but in tetra), Hemp milk or Almond milk

1tbsp blackstrap molasses (iron)

2 tbsp flax oil, coconut oil or hemp oil (essential fatty acid)

2-4 tbsp brown rice protein powder (heartlands organic is a good one, see how your little does with 2 Tbsp of protein, if there is no constipation or upset then up by 1 Tbsp at a time until you build 4 Tbsp)

1tbsp liquid infant multi-vitamin

1 drop of d-drops 400 iu

1/4 tsp infant probiotics

Quoted from ABOUT.COM----Elemental formulas are formulas made from free amino acids, rather than broken down proteins. These formulas are well-tolerated by infants and young children with severe food allergies, including those with eosinophilic esophagitis. EFs have also been used in an attempt to prevent or delay the onset of allergic disease, particularly food allergy and atopic dermatitis, in children at high risk for developing allergic disease. Examples of EFs include Neocate, Elecare, Vivonex and Nutramigen AA.".

Nutramigen is made by Enfamil and can be ordered through Walmart for about $146.oo a four pack or about $40.00 a can. Make sure that whatever you buy is corn free--especially the sweetners. Milk and soy allergies often go hand and hand with corn allergies.
