HI Doctor,
i should have listened to you but i decided to try putting my baby back on Nan 1 (after being on Nan Lactose free for a week) at the advice of his paediatrician. It did' nt go well as he started to have loose, slimy,rice grain size and formed stools ( if that makes any sense )put him back on Lactose free still went out 3 times with no other symptoms just loose stools. Is it okay to put baby on a Soya based milk without testing for allergies, and if so how long would he have to be on it ? He is 4 months , so when i start solids at 6 months what would i start him on?

You can start your baby on a soya formulanow if you wish as this contains no lactose and is also suitable for babies who are allergic to cow's milk although not ideal.When starting him on solids at 6 months use a rice cereal. Avoid all milk based cereals.
