    Milk alternative? Rice milk for under 1yo?

    Hi Everyone,

    My girls have all reacted to milk before the age of 12 months so I am keen not to try DD3 on milk until this time. I am wanting to try her on wheat-bix soon and I was wondering what to use instead of milk. My other girls were ff so I used formula. Should I buy formula or maybe rice milk?

    Is rice milk ok for infants?

    Hi Bekz

    My DS2 early weaned and had a milk intolerance. We used Soy Milk. He wouldn't take soy formula and couldn't tolerate other formulas so Soy Milk it was.
    He is fine now and grew out of the Dairy Intolerance.

    I used to look after a little who had breastmilk on her weetbix. If that works for you, could that be an option?
    If not, yeah, formula is good. No reason not to try rice milk too. It has a very low fat content though, so make sur she's still getting that from somewhere.
