It depends on if you want to wean soon. If she is sensitive to cow's milk, and you want to continue to nurse for another year or more, you could lessen the amt of table foods she gets and offer more EBF or nursing when you are home. Studies have shown, breastmilk, ideally, should be the main source of nutrition until the third b-day!
Some toddlers like their table foods a lot, but then end up weaning before it is good for them to do so. Children are actually meant to receive breastmilk for 3-6 years. Age 6 is when theri secnd molars come in and their own immune systme is fully developed.
The cow's milk products she can tolerate do have some nutrients, but too much of others, such as sodium and potassium, and of course, no immune factors.
So, weigh the evidence, and make your own choice.
