My 2 year old daugter has a problem of loose stools which leads to diarreha when she drinks any other kind of milk. She was allergic to cow''s and goat''s in her infant days then when I took her to the doctor to prescribe her some milk, he suggested hypo-allergic which made her develop skin thrus all over her body. He then suggested soya milk which was good until she turned 1y8m which she turned out to be allergic to, as she vomitted and had very loose stools even if she just drand a 250ml cup. I even tried rice milk as it doesn''t not contain any lactose, soya, etc, but the results of loose stools are thee same. I bought her some calsuba junior powder to boost her calcium intake which i put in her water to drink. She eats no other yoghurt but danisimo only as the other other kinds of yoghurts makes her develop eczema. She''s also allergic to tomatoes especially if not cooked. Do you have a solution to this? &  also what can I replace the milk that she''s not getting with?N.B: I also tried to include her milk with her rooibos tea but no still loose stools.

It is very obvious that your little daughter is highly allergic to cow's milk, goats milk and soya milk. Fortunately she is 2 years old and milk is no longer an essential food for her. She needs to be on a good mixed diet and you can give her water and all other fluids that she is able to drink. She can take only one form of yoghurt which is good and you can continue this.Avoid all the forms of milk and their products as well in her diet. She needs the calcium supplement which is also good. Avoid raw tomatoes.If you are concerned about her diet and find that you need expert advice contact a dietician in your area.
