Wynston is and he is turning one next week . I tried to wean him off formula and give him Silk milk with DHA but he threw it back up. So I have no idea what kind of milk to give him and still get the nutrients he needs. Do I just keep him on formula ?

Yes Sarah-Jane is she did the same as Wyston did so the doctor said to leave her on the formula or try her on soya milk but with all the new research done on soya milk i decided to leave her on the formula.The doctor also said to retry her at 18mnths on the milk as a lot of little ones bellys at 12mnths are not able to digest the milk but can at 18mnths.

Have you tried lactose free milk (ie lactaid)? Was the silk milk you tried flavoured? If it was maybe try the regular. There is also goat's milk which is lactose free and tends to be just fine for lactose intolerant people, although it is a bit pricey (I think I paid $2.50 for a QUART!). I would also speak with his pediatrician and see what they say. Good luck!

Thank you ladies. I will try the lactaid and the Silk I tried him on was not flavored. I tried it too and I see why he gagged. It has a greasy taste. I haven't considered Goats Milk. I will have to look into that.

Back in the day, before Lactaid, Silk, etc goat's milk is what was marketed for people thta were lactose intolerant. And I have tried it and it isn't bad. It is considered the "universal milk" so it can be given to animals who lost their mothers, to people, etc. As I said it's expensive, but if it works, hey it may be worth it.

He goes for his 1 year well check next week and I will talk to the doctor about this. He used to be on Alimentum, which is very expensive formula. Now he is on Similac Lactose-Free and does very well with that. His father thinks that as soon as he turns one that he should be OFF formula and I tried to explain to him that it just doesn't work that way.
