    Default Milk allergy - weaning from formula to ....

    what....?

    I am confused.

    My MCHN told me today that DS needs to stop having bottles and start drinking milk from a sippy cup. We had previously been using his formula in a sippy cup but she said to try soy milk.

    Has anyone else swapped from soy formula to - soy/rice milk or another milk substitute?

    Love to hear from you!

    Yep! My DD was on soy formula and when she turned one I put her into
    Soy milk by slowly adding it her bottle. It example, 3/4 formula and 1/4 soy milk for a few days then increased to half and half and did that a few days and so on untill she had a while bottle of soy milk. I let her have bottles a few months more untill she was only having one before bed at night. Then one night I just told her that she was a big girl and that he would have her milk in special big girl cup and she went with it!

    Once she turned 2 I got rid of milk at night and introduced fruit time instead.

    Hope that helps!

    I put my two milk allergic kids onto soymilk when they turned one. There's also soy yoghurt/cheese and icecream available if you're interested.

    Thanks ladies! I looked at soy yoghurt today but it was filled with sugar - do you have any brands for soy milk/yoghurt that you prefer... ? I have bought Vitasoy organic and an organic rice milk too...

    The bottle weaning I think will prove to be a bit more difficult - he still wakes during the night and last night for example he woke twice the first time he went back to sleep with a bottle of water but the second time I caved and gave him a small formula bottle - I need to stop this.

    How old is he?

    DD will only drink so good soy milk. I don't give DD the yogurts either! Too much sugar.

    We went cold Turkey with the bottles and luckily it didn't phase DD too much as we had been using her sippy cup since 6 months.

    When DD first wet onto soy milk I was very naughty
    I would add small amounts of blended strawberries or banana then slowly added less and less. It's not recommended but pfft it worked I only did this over a course of a week max!

    I do wish I never have her soy though as me and DH have oat milk and she won't drink that now

    DD weaned on to soy milk. We buy the Vita Soy organic calci-rich. She gradually weaned from breastfeeding to soy formula, then to soy milk. She loved the taste so it was a fairly easy transition. She would have one of those bottles with the straw before bedtime, then brush teeth, then bed. I didn't want her to have too much soy so tried to limit it to just that one. That was at age 2-2.5 yrs though.

    Now at 7 she still has one cup of milk before bed.

    Thanks for your replies - so far so good!


    We haven't had a bottle yet today - we have tried 4 different sippy cups and I'm not sure how much milk he is getting but he seems ok. He just went down to his nap without a bottle which is great.

    He just turned 1 Waterlily.

    How is the weaning going babyla?

    My MHCN suggested for me with DD to start using the different milks (soy, oat, rice) with her cereal now to give DD the taste to see what she likes.

    I like the idea of slowly adding soy milk to soy formula once she turns 1.

    With soy yoghurt, you can but a yoghurt maker from the supermarket and make your own soy yoghurt. I've not made any but my mum makes regular yoghurt with it and its meant to be really easy.

    Hey Cuddles, really well, it seems to sort itself out. I just stopped offering the bottles of soy formula and have offered rice/oat milks and I generally alternate. He really likes both which is good. I started with oat milk on weet bix with banana. Its so messy going from bottles to the unmastered sippy cup! I'm mopping at least 3 times a day! I'm glad it's summer

    I'll look into the soy yoghurt, I wasn't entranced with the sugar in the pre made so home made sounds great. Thanks!

    It's called Easiyo. I think it's a container and something you add to milk to turn it into yoghurt over night in the fridge.

    So it's not anything electrical or expensive. http://www.easiyo.com
