Hi

I have a baby who is almost 15 months old and i want to wean himoff his formula

The only problem is is he has a milk allergy (he had a skin test which was positive for him to be allergic to milk AND eggs) so he is on soy formula. What kind of milk should i put him on ? and when should i start to wean him? and how exactly do i do that ? He is my first : )

I would talk to your doctor first if I were you, but usually they want you to put them on a soy based milk if they have an allergy to regular milk.
Hope this helps

I agree with talking to your doctor. Better to get advice from a professional when it comes to allergies.

Please come back and let us know what advice you are given? It may help someone else in the same situation!
