    Default Egg & dairy allergy in 7mo/formula & alternate food recommendations

    My 7mo DD has just been diagnosed with egg & dairy allergy. I was going to transition her to formula on a few months and now need to source one that's extensively hydrolysed. The allergy specialist said they taste disgusting because of the way the proteins are broken down. Have you found one that your LO will take? She said a lot of bubs won't even drink them.

    Also are there any resources/online groups etc for meal ideas and alternate product recommendations? Thanks

    I can't comment on the formula but my DD is vegan so I know about substitutes and egg / dairy free products.

    PETA accidently vegan list of supermarket products that are dairy / egg free (I'm not sure if you have to avoid "may contain traces of" products. I would hazard a guess that a lot will fall into that category:
    https://www.peta.org.au/living/accidentally-vegan/

    Milk - we find almond milk the best. Organic doesn't have any added calcium, go for the non organic.

    Eggs - my DD uses bananas a lot in baking for an egg substitute. Also look at chia seeds as an egg substitute in baking - http://www.fussfreecooking.com/recip...ute-in-baking/

    Butter - Nutelex is a dairy free margarine

    There are lots of vegan you tube channels that basically show what they eat in a day and publish recipies. While you aren't avoiding meat, you may find some ideas in here:

    This lady has a youtube channel plus website
    http://www.sarahlemkus.com/recipes/ Her recipes are great because she lives in NZ and uses a fresh ingredients. A lot I've been looking at are American and they use ingredients you just can't get here.

    **Will be back later. Have to deal with a situation.**

    ETA back now.

    Basically google vegan recipes and you will get a lot of ideas.
    I've seen marinated tofu used as an egg substitute in some savoury recipes.

    There are a lot of baked cakes / biscuits that are naturally egg free and are fine made with almond milk and nutelex eg Anzac biscuits, I have a couple of weetbix based recipes and coconut loaf I make that don't need eggs.
    @Amber4304 is in the same situation and started this thread last week:

    My DD had a suspected dairy allergy (thankfully it wasn’t that) we tried Allerpro formula, novalac also do a rice milk formula. These are the only 2 over the counter. You can get a prescription for DF formulas from your paed. They’re hard to find I believe.
    When are you transitioning? I’d start by mixing breastmilk with the formula. The allerpro isn’t very nice smelling my DD refused it and it made all of her symptoms worse. Novalac rice formula number 1 ingredient is glucose syrup so I wanted to avoid that. I think you’ll just have to try a few and see what she likes best. As far as milk alternatives go once off formula I’d stay clear if soy, and rice milks. I don’t believe they’re very good for young ones, do some googling on them.
    I’m DF myself and to be honest I don’t really drink milk, they’re all not great. Nutty Bruce do a nice almond/coconut milk. Cashews make a nice sour cream and cream. Coconut cream is also a good replacement. Look up paleo meal ideas, they’re all DF. Quirky cooking has some good ideas, but some recipes are Thermomix so might have to have convert. Savoury yeast flakes give a nice cheesy flavour, ghee can be tolerated by some instead of butter as most proteins are removed in the process.
    Good luck. Any questions on DF feel free to PM me. I’ve been DF for 10 Year’s with the exception of when I was pregnant- strangely my body tolerated it.

    Check out www. wellnourished.com.au most of the recipes have a dairy free and egg free alternative at the bottom

    We’re the same DD is 6.5 months and we were diagnosed a couple of weeks ago. DD won’t take a bottle yet but I’m desperate to wean as I go back to work in a month. I’m trying s26 soy formula at the moment.

    The formula thing really worries me! She told me to get allerpro as it's better ingredient wise but said it tasted absolutely terrible! I might try holding out with BF till she hits 12m then weaning into a milk substitute with vitamin supplements to make up the difference. I'm a bit worried about not supplementing with vitamins because she's not the best water in the world (hopefully that will change though)

    To be honest the Allerpro smelt like cheap fish food if you’re able to I’d try stick with breastfeeding as long as you can. Then from 12 months introduce a milk substitute. You might find you don’t need to add in vitamins, I’d talk to your doctor or a paediatric nutritionist about it if you’re concerned.
