When DS was on formula (I supplemented for the first 6 weeks then breastfed) he was on soy. And now he gets lactose free milk cuz he can't handle regular.

Our oldest is alergic to cows milk, she was breastfed, we use almond milk. I dislike the taste of soy lol.

I'd do the soy toddler formula, or soy milk- actually, almond milk is better for you. My son was on hypoallergenic formula and we went from that to almond milk. At 3 years old he tolerated skim cows milk.

almond is better? i didnt know that i gues we'll try regular milk and see then switch to almond if needed i was also told to switch her formula to regular from soy at 6months but that sounds kinda crazy
