    Default rice milk?

    Hey
    My second baby has had pretty bad eczema on her face neck and body for about 6 months now ( she is 8 months) we have been managing it a lil with the steroid based creams and mainly by putting her in those suits with pockets over her hands so she cant scratch . Drives her crazy but definitely helps. Anyhow i have done a lot of swapping of detergents and foods with no success. I currently use Karicare aptimil formula which has not changed since birth and my doc is adament about me trying rice milk instead. What are peoples experiences here? Because my basic understanding of rice milk is that it may help eczema but it lacks the vitamins and nutrients for growth and development at this age and shouldnt be swapped so im hesitant to say the least !
    Just wondering if anyone elses doctor has advised this?

    Not to replace her formula at that age! ( unless there is a rice formula I'm
    Unaware of!)
    Babies need fat for growth ( as well as other vitamins etc) and rice milk does not have that - only after 1 if they are getting their nutrients from good I would give rice milk ( almond and quinoa milk actually a lot better than rice)
    Is the lactose in the milk or dairy in general causing the problem?

    i dont believe it has anything to do with dairy. in fact im kinda thinking back to my last multiple gp experiences and i believe that they are a bunch of witch doctors who you just cant get to pay attention or take you seriously. im going to try some cold pressed flaxseed oil and baby pro biotics and take it from there i think. couldnt bear the idea of not providing enough nourishment

    I would try Karicare Goats Milk. This is what both my children were on before 1 and then I swapped to Rice and Oat milk.

    I believe rice milk should not be used as a whole milk for children under 5 years of age..
    Soy milk from my understanding is a much better option..
