Ds 14mo acid reflux has returned since moving from formula to cows milk at 1yr. I would like to try him on soya milk but he doesn't like the taste. Can I mix the 2 and gradually increase the amount of soya milk until he's used to it? I'm aware many children who have problems with cows milk also do with soya milk but as he doesn't have a severe problem I'm hoping it may be alright.

Thanks

Yes, I believe alpro do a special soya milk that is suitable from 1+. Normal soya milk would be too low fat and some don't have added calcium etc, so be sure to use the suitable one. Good luck.

Soya milk isn't great for boys - I'm not sure why but it is something to do with fertility. Please read up on it before you give him soya milk.

Do you think it could be an allergy to cow's milk?
