Getting enough fat...

She is cows milk protein intolerant. She's not reacted to ready brek. There was quite a lot of discussion about it on one of the threads recently, loads of people said their children had been fine with it so I gave dd a try as her reactions aren't life threatening. Loads of things carry a warning if they are made in a factory that also processes dairy products - I guess it depends how severe you think your Childs reaction could be if there was some contamination.

Hita, thanks for this. I brought some ready brek today & it actually says 'Not suitable for milk allergy suffers'.

Is your DC allergic to cows milk? And is ok with it? My DS 7mths is still waiting testing but he has had reactions to formula, butter & yoghurt.

Should have said, ready brek says 'may contain milk' or something like that but dd has been fine with it.

Ready been contains heaps of calcium - I make it with Oatly, which is also fortified with calcium, for my dairy free 10mo DD2. She also has soya yoghurts fortified with calcium. Fats come from oils and meat - olive oil and stork block mainly as she's has possible minor reactions to some of the dairy free spreads she's tried. Next on my list of things to try are soya milk and fish - she had an immediate reaction to salmon a few months ago but allergy tests came out negative so we've been advised to very cautiously try fish again. Would be great in terms of calcium if she can have fish.

So DS 8mths has reacted to formula, yoghurt, butter & egg.

GP was wonderful & has reffered us to allegy clinic to see a consultant. In the meantime he has advised to avoid above.

DS is still breastfeeding and has weaning really well but I'm worried he won't get enough fat (& calcium) in the absence of cheese, fromage fraud etc.

Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks xx
