Q.

milk products

I started feeding my baby nan then at 4 months I realised that the milk didn't agree with her after she landed in hospital twice with diarrhoea. Since then she has been drinking Isomil1 and now 2. She is now one year old. Dairy milk products still don't agree with her. my question is What substitutes can I give to her in place of the dairy milk products also is there any other milk products that I can give to her that will be just as good as dairy.

There is no harm done by continuing the Soya milk up to 18-24 months. However, my advice would be to start introducing dairy product like yoghurt and if this is well tolerated you may try to switch to ordinary cow's milk in the coming months. If the problems recur, which is unlikely, formal allergy tests may provide some guidance.
