my 9 month old cant have cows milk as it flares up his eczema and is having goats milk formula having just stopped BF. health visitor useless at giving advice on anything outside of the norm and feel a bit in the dark about what he can have and how much calcium it gives him ie, is soya, sheep and goats milk and yogurt ok etc
any advice appreciated!

You might get a better reply to this on the allergies forum.

I don't 'know' much about the subject, but my ds doesn't have cows milk (it gives him digestive problems, and minor skin problems). We use goats milk and cheese, and live cows milk yoghurt.

We don't use soya milk, as there are issues about giving it to boys, and it also doesn't particularly agree with him.

Not sure about calcium level in rice and soya milk, but would think goats milk is similar to cows?
