Long story short I can’t give my 13 month old DD soy milk (rash) or cows milk (lactose intolerant). I found lactose free milk but I have not been able to find any information on it. I want to keep giving her some type of milk because it comforts her and I think she needs the calories. She is not bf-ing (another long story) Does any one have any suggestions?

Why do you think she's lactose intolerant? Unless she has galactosemia, lactose intolerance doesn't happen in babies and toddlers.<br><br>

Have you tried raw cow's milk? Many people who cannot tolerate homogenized pasteurized cow's milk can drink it raw because the enzymes are still intact.

We are giving her Lactose-free. I just haven't been able to find any info on it. Did you pass on the lactose intolerant to your DC? Just wondering because my DH is lactose intolerant and has been since he was a tot. My DH still eats ice cream no matter how bad he feels <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I know it has already been suggested, but I would try goats milk. Babies need lactose for brain development, or at least thats what I understand. Many people who are sensitive to cows milk do okay on goat milk. I have also read that some people who cannot tolerate pasteurized milk can drink raw milk.<br>
I would personally avoid rice and soy milks because they are sweetened (usually) and not even close to animal milk. I would also avoid almond milk unless you have introduced nuts.

is she getting a rash or vomiting from cows milk? my dd is fine with lactose (breastmilk is full of it) but not ok with the protein in cow or soy milk. She has the same reaction to both.<br><br>
If she's reacting to the proteins, then you shouldn't do lactose free either...<br><br>
We use high quality high fat foods (olive oil, avocado, etc) to replace the fat in cow milk for brain development, and high calcium (dark greens, tahini, and a supplement) for her vitamins. I am also dairy/soy free, so I take a supplement.<br><br>
For "things to drink" we have rice milk (best on cereal imo), almond milk (best for drinking, both regular and chocolate), watered down juice, but usually we just drink water. Rice and almond milks will come nowhere near to replacing the vitamins and fat of soy or cow milk though, so you will need to supplement her diet in other ways.

ditto on the raw milk. HIGHLY good for you....it's all the yucky stuff they do to milk that makes people unable to handle it.<br><br><a href="http://realmilk.com/where.html" target="_blank">http://realmilk.com/where.html</a><br><br>
also wanted to add that sheep's milk is actually the easiest to digest. You can find sources on realmilk or here<br><a href="http://www.westonaprice.org/localchapters/locallist.html" target="_blank">http://www.westonaprice.org/localcha...locallist.html</a><br><br>
if you are curious about it, this is a good book to check out from your library<br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FUntold-Story-Milk-Pastures-Contented%2Fdp%2F0967089743%2Fsr%3D8-1%2Fqid%3D1162992468%2Fref%3Dpd_bbs_sr_1%2F002-2249843-7089602%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Untold-Story-M...e=UTF8&s=books</a>

Hmm, I'd always wondered what the deal with cow's milk was. Thanks for the links!<br><br>
To the OP - your dd sounds exactly like mine at the same age! We did use lactose-free milk for a while, and she was able to tolerate it. I also found that she was able to tolerate soy milk if she only had 4 to 6 ounces of it a day. My only complaint is that it is hard (if not impossible) to find lactose-free milk in whole milk and organic varieties.<br><br>
dd has been able to tolerate regular cow's milk since she was about 2 (though I haven't given it to her in very large quantities). I don't know how common this pattern is, but dh was the same way. He can now handle all dairy products with no problem, except that he does get a bit stuffy after eating them in quantity.

She gets horrible diarrhea with cows milk. With soy milk it’s very painful diaper rash but no diarrhea. My DH had the same thing when his mama gave him cow’s milk at 1 year he had bad diarrhea and then she switch to soy and the dp rash began. So she comes by all of this honestly!! However once we started Lactose free milk her poo returned to normal and so did her bottom. I have been able to find whole lactose free milk but it was not organic. If they make organic I can’t find it anywhere.<br><br>
I will check out all these alternates thank you all!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
