Q.

Formula similar to pepticate

Good day my lo is now 11 months will 1 end of the month. She was put on pepticate due to dairy and soya bean allergy. I am trying to find a formula similar to Pepticate for 2 reasons. 1 she will be 1 soon and formula only states 12 months and 2 the cost is extremely high. my current paediatrician didn't want to put her on goat milk as it contains a lot of protein. what else can i use and what do i use after she turned 1

Your paediatrician was right about goat’s milk.Dairy free formulas are usually expensive and your baby is also allergic to soya. You can continue with Pepticate for your baby to at least 15 months, during which time her diet will become more varied and contain a healthy mix of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats. Repeat her allergy test for cow’s milk at 15 months and see if she is still allergic to cow’s milk. If she is not then your problem is virtually over, if she is still allergic to cow’s milk at 15 months she will probably have to continue on the Pepticate to 18 months together with her regular healthy mixed diet. She should be under the care of a paediatrician.
