My sister took my nephew to get an allergy test and the results came back indicating a long list of foods. She has an appointment with and allergist in about 3 weeks, but she is really stressed over it.

Any suggestions for milks he can have???? He was originally breast feed, but has been drinking rice milk for months. (perhaps he's intolerant, not allergic). He doesn't like Soy and because of the peanuts she doesn't want to try almond milk.

Any other suggestions on what to give him until the test? I'm about to head to the health food store to see what I can find.

He is allergic to:
Egg whites
soy - he doesn't like soy milk
Diary - he should avoid due to skin irritation

  • Please do research a noninvasive treatment called NAET. Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Techniques. It is a revolutionary, if controversial to some, technique to identify and ELIMINATE allergies. I have used this treatment on myself and my childern...it is nothing short of amazing. It doesn't help everyone (75% of people respond), but you will notice a difference in two or three treatments. I have completely irradicated my asthma and multiple food intolerances. It is also not a quick fix, but requires multiple treatments (15-20 minimum). Depending on where you live this gets expensive...but keep in mind that once an allergy is cleared it is cleared for life. So think of it more like an investment in good health. www.naet.com Cannot recommend this highly enough. It is safe to use on newborns - you just work with a surrogate (your sister). Best wishesDOM

  • Have you tried breast milk? My daughter is 7 months, very healthy and I've been blessed with having an overabundant supply of milk. I'm an approved donor for a regional milk bank and have passed all health screens, etc. I have some available if you would like to try some. You can contact me at drinkright@gmail.com.Best of luck.

  • My child also had multiple food allergies and we saw 3 nutritionists. The third one was the best because she worked with kids with cystic fibrosis and knew what he needed to eat to survive and also thrive. A pediatric allergist is a must in this case. This not a time to mess with alternative treatments. Beans were not on the allergy list so this is a good source of protein. My son drank neocate Junior formula instead of milk. It is very expensive so you should get a prescription, and if you live in the US, WIC usually covers it. Allergies are to proteins. Proteins are made of amino acids, and you body breaks down proteins into amino acids anyways so animo acids are good sources of nutrition for multiple protein allergies. Neocate tases vile so you need to cover up the flavor. Health food stores are good sources for tasty allergen-free foods but they are also expensive. Try to include foods that are not usually allergenic, like apples and rice.
