ds is 1 and we believe he has a cows milk allergy as displays all the symptoms.

have an appointment with gp on Thursday but until then we've been told to put him back on his formula.

he's being sick, diarrohea and isn't himself since going back on formula.

should i try soya milk or wait until we see gp?

ds also has reflux and when i was picking up his gaviscon i noticed that alpro do a 1+ milk thats soya based and dairy free

what formula was he using originally as they are mostly based on cows milk so he would have shown a reaction beforehand if he was allergic to cows milk? Has he always shown symptoms? No harm in trying the 1+ soya though.

he was on cow n gate 6m+

i think he has shown signs but was mistaken for reflux and has been on infant gaviscon since October.

with cows milk and his formula if we don't use gaviscon he gets violently sick, bloated tummy, diarrohea and only on cows milk he gets a rash on his cheeks, neck, back and thighs
