Switching From Formula To "milk" With A Cow's Milk, Egg, Peanut, Tree Nut Allergy

Switching From Formula To "milk" With A Cow's Milk, Egg, Peanut, Tree Nut Allergy

My 13 month old has recently been diagnosed with severe allergies to milk, eggs, tree nuts and peanuts. She is currently on Nutramigen formula and I am looking for a milk to switch her to. Our pediatric allergist recommended soy milk that is not made in a facility not produced with other allergens. I have contacted companies and cannot find a product. Does anyone know of one?

I am considering Organic Dream Soy Milk, Good Karma FlaxMilk,… read more

We have found 8th Continent Soy Milk and it's made in a facility free of the top 8 Allergens! So excited to find this! Yes, I'm aware of "made in facility" labeling. I've contacted many companies. I wish there was a law requiring it to be on a package. It would make our lives much easier!

My son is anaphylactic to dairy and we've been drinking So Delicious coconut milk for 7 years without an issue. When he was one we switched him from Nutramigen to a soy based toddler formula for a year just to provide extra nutrients. I don't remember what it was called but it helped him gain a little weight. He's now 10 and FINALLY above 50% on the growth chart! If you haven't already done so, look into Veganaise and you can make homemade ranch dressing:) I had to navigate the dairy allergy world 9 years ago and have gotten very creative in the kitchen. The internet will become your best friend! Also, look into Kelly Rudnicki's cook books...they are dairy, egg and nut free and the recipes are amazing! Good luck....if you need anything else I'd be glad to help!

With allergies like these. I have learned look for the "V" on things. Vegan. Also an app I can share with you that you scan barcodes on items in the store and select your allergies and it will tell you if your child can have or not. It's saved us hours reading labels in the grocery store
