I was suspicious of a cow milk allergy in my 12 month son when I started to supplement breast milk at this age so I put him on soy milk during the day and mom's milk at night. Since then he has had nasal congestion almost all the time and once a month gets bad congestion in his lungs (asthma?). The peds always treat it like asthma but it seems we are treating the bad symptom rather than the cause. At 15 months we weaned completely to soy milk. That month he had a worst cold which lead to his first ear infection. He recoved after taking progressively stronger antibiotics. He just had another asthma bout and someone suggested it might be a soy allergy. The doctor dismissed this quickly but I thought I would ask if anyone had kids with soy allergies and what symptoms they had. Anyone??? Thanks.
