My DS2 was on it.

What allergies and intolerances has your DD got and how old is she?

I was lucky - DS2 happily drank it. I have heard some struggle but there's lots of handy tips (google) to get them used to it.

Hope things are ok

She's suspected having a dairy & soya allergy

Was on neocate from 4 weeks until 11 months when she did the milk ladder with no reaction however now is continually sick for the last 2 weeks so her paedetrician thinks it's a delayed reaction

Now she's lost a lot of weight and barely eating any food so she's been moved onto this

Has had 4oz and seems to have stayed down so far

How long was your son on it for?

Until he was about 3 !
But they were late in diagnosing him (16 months old) so by the time we had convinced it was a virus (lasting 16 months) his stomach was utterly knackered and needed to repair.

And they never rushed us to get off it. He has oat milk as is sensitive to soya (though can eat it in cooked stuff).

It will probably take a few weeks to get the dairy out her system again.
Poor thing - must be feeling miserable.

There's alot of us on here with dairy-free children.

There is a great thread around in this section which must be a few years old now about unexpected dairy-free foods (like oreo cookies!) which used to brighten up my day when all I could think is "they'll never a profiterole".

Is it oatly milk you use on cereal? Our dietician isn't very helpful as to what I can use on cereal if she's had her allowance of the neocate in 24 hours

I know she can't have soya but I've seen oatly and koko listed as alternatives but haven't tried either

It's really overwhelming and I'm so cross it's got to this stage

My DS tried a few types of milk but likes the oatly one (you can get one with added vitamins and calcium) and we use it on cereal.

We tried almond, hazelnut ones. It's a bit trial and error.

Frustrating isn't it?

Yeah it is. I've been into morrisons and found koko yoghurts so thought I'd try those in a few days but at the moment I'm concentrating on getting her to have the neocate as she's not a big drinker so 32oz s day is a challenge and a half!

I'll add oatly onto our tesco order thanks
