Your little toddler is allergic to cows milk so cannot use any of the cow's milk formulas. She has now become allergic to soya milk as well. This is quite common and can occur in as many as one third of allergic babies who are on a soya formula. She does still need a milk so you can try rice milk which should suit her and is not too expensive.Your little girl will also need additional calcium so speak to your pharmacist about this.
