Alexa is breastfed right now, but when we had to supplement we had to switch to soy formula because she seemed to be lactose intolerant at the time. At one year old when others start cow milk, what would we use if I am not breastfeeding anymore?

I'd ask the ped first to make sure, but I'd try cow's milk first. My DS was on Alimentum from the time he was 2 months old, which is for babies allergic to milk and soy formulas and he did fine on cow's milk at one year old. My DD was on Neocate from the time she was one months old, which is for babies allergic to milk, soy and Allimentum formulas! We've gradually added cow's milk to her bottles over the last month (she's almost 13 months now) and as of last Friday she's doing all cow's milk - no formula - and is doing fine. I think a lot of the time they outgrow the milk allergy/sensitivity by age one. So I'd give cow's milk a try - mix a little into some breastmilk perhaps - and see how it goes. Start with 2/3 breastmilk and 1/3 cow's milk and do that for a week. If all goes well, do 1/2 and 1/2 for a week and then do 1/3 breastmilk and 2/3 cow's milk for a week. That's what we did with the formula for both kids and both did fine.
If that doesn't work or if you don't want to try that, you could always use soy milk or if you really think the issue was with lactose and not with milk protein then you could look for lactose free milk (but I don't know if that comes in whole milk and they need the fat for brain development).
Before she gets to be one year old, try yogurt and cheese and see how she does with those. That might give you a clue which way to go.
Good luck!
