Q.

16mnth on NanHA - dare I try cow's milk?

I have a lot of problems with my 5-year-old with allergies to milk, eggs & gluten. I raised her on Isomil.
My youngest is 16 months, she started vomiting from the Isomil at 2 months, so I switched to NanHA. I suppose I can't keep her on it for ever, but am really scared she starts getting sick if I give her ordinary cow's milk. Any suggestions?

Please do not try to give her cow's milk yet. Wait until she is at least 2 years old.Some times we wait until the child is 3 years old before doing this. You could also use a soya milk.

Thank you!

And yes Gis, she is eating solids, though I am staying away from any dairy products. Luckily she doesn't react to bread the way her poor sister does!

If your noenie is not allergic to any solids (u are giving your baba solids?) i can't see why you can't give cow's milk. Maybe just phone your health care advisor first, but I am sure it will be ok.

Good luck!
