You can give your baby soya yoghurt now. Keep her on the Isomil until she is 15 months old. She can be tested for allergy to cows milk using a test called the RAST test. Your doctor will be able to arrange for this test to be done. If it is negative then she can drink cow's milk and have all dairy products again.
