cows milk allergy

my son has an allergy for cows milk. I have now put him on soy milk Isomil1 and he has been on it for a week. how long does it take for the cramps to stop as he is still crampy? and he seems to be a little constipated what other soy milk can i use?

You do not mention your son's age. Is he still a young baby? If so he may simply have colic and may not be allergic to milk.Has he been tested for cow's milk allergy? Many babies become constipated when given a soya formula. Isomil1 is one of the best soya formulas and it will not help to change to another soya formula.If your son's milk allergy is,or has been confirmed on allergy testing he will need to go onto a low allergy formula such as NAN HA. If his milk allergy is severe he will need Similac Alimentum.

i was told before when he was about a month that he is colic but my son is 4months old and will be 5months on the 26th. he has been tested and its been confirmed by his pediatrician that he has a cows milk allergy. im not sure if he is constipated as he stools every second or third day. his tummy is also not hard. he''s not sleeping well at well and wakes up every two to three hours crying of the cramps. i''m feeling so despondent as it''s been 4months already and nothing seems to work.
