For a babe with previous milk sensitivities, if I'm going to see if he can tolerate ANY dairy?

(to date, I haven't given him anything that even contains a bit of milk, like a teething biscuit that has milk in the ingredient list. Is that something I should do first??)

It's a dairy formula/dairy in bm while I was pumping intolerance with GI symptoms, not anaphylaxis or anything (sp?)

lovin DH since 1/04, best mom for my 3 boys 10/04, 11/08, 11/10 one girlie (1/07), and one 13 wk (10/13) just your average :ha ng multigenerational living family!!

You may want to consider using goat milk first. Goat milk has a softer, more easily digestable protein. Ds has an intollerance to cow's milk and can handle goat milk very well. I make yoghurt and kefir with it. It's a little thinner, but if you buy goat yoghurt they add tapica to thicken it up. Goat milk is also naturally non-homogonized, so it hasn't gone through the chemical process that homogonized milk has.
