Customer Question

My grandaughter was on nurtriminigen until 13 months due to milk allergy. We tried her on whole milk but seemed fussy and constantly having runny bowel movements. She has been on Lactaid milk but still seems to have some trouble tolerating it and doesnt have a healthy appetite. She is 17 months. Do you have any suggestions as to what to try next?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: We are going this week, but I wanted a second opinion.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, her mother had a milk allergy and was put on soy formula from one to two. Im just not sure which to try that will have the most health benefits.

At this age soy milk can be given.

A very few can develop allergy to soy milk too.

As you are going to doctor next week, you can wait till doctor can assess in person.

I hope this information will be helpful.
