Re: Non-dairy, non-soy formula?

I give my dairy/soy intolerant baby nutramigin, but, if she were that close to a year I'd legally just give her coconut milk while I was at work and breastfeed when I was home.

Re: Non-dairy, non-soy formula?

As others have said the hypoallergenic hydrolyzed milk protein formulas work for most intolerant babies.. they are similac alimentum, enfamil nutramigen, and enfamil pregestimil (also contains MCT oils).. they taste terrible and are around $25 for a 16 oz can of powder. They can be flavored with something like the Neocate flavor packets (lemon lime, grapefruit, and cherry vanilla).

If those don't work amino acid based formulas are your next option.. my 3rd child was on Neocate, then Elecare until 3 yo.. my youngest is almost 2 and almost entirely dependant on Neocate for all his nutrition.. but he has severe allergies/intolerance (we are pretty sure he is at least gluten/dairy intolerant both cause severe pain and digestive upset, rashes, etc. It is also suspected that he has esophinillic esophagitis thatis treated by his amino acid based diet.. he recently began eating some real foods but currently only has a handful of safe foods (banana, carrots, brown rice, blackberries). He'll likely be on Neocate for several more years at least.

As well as goats milk I highly suggest looking into coconut milk. Very very healthy and a lot cheaper than some of the other options. At 11 months you need something pretty fatty though for energy... But I still recommend staying away from soy in large amounts as it is a common allergen. Coconut milk is what I personally use as I am nursing a dairy and soy free baby

stitching, witching, brewing, dyeing, spinning

Lactose intolerance in infants is extremely rare, it's almost always a sensitivity to milk proteins ...

Nutramigen worked well for us. It doesn't taste too bad, especially in the ready to feed. It's quite expensive, but for part time feedings wouldn't break the bank.
Alimentium tasted horrible, almost like burnt sugar smells :-(

Oh, both of our kids have had almond milk from about 15 months on. If you aren't concerned about tree nut allergies, it is very good and healthy alternative to cows milk.
