We have been aware my DD (nearly 1) is lactose intolerant since she was around 6weeks old, ie she was not putting on weight whilst being BF (and had fatglobules in her stools), was recommended by GP to top up with formula, nochange, then switched her to lactose free formula (and cut out dairy from mydiet) and she put on nearly 1kg in a week (and upon re-testing stools werenormal)….. we saw an allergist at RCH regarding this an a few other possibleallergies/sensitivities a few weeks ago. DD had skin prick testing for a soyallergy, which she was negative to (but, not sure whether as a result of thesoy prick, or another culprit, she had an upset and I suspect sore stomach forthe next day or so), thus the allergist suggested I swap everything normallydairy with soy. All was going well for a day or so, then she developed terriblegastro like symptoms, and an awful burnt bottom nappy rash (which she has onlyhad once previously, before we switched her to lactose free). So we eliminated thesoy and within a few days she was much better again….. so the long and theshort of it is, are we right in suspecting DD is intolerant to both lactose andsoy….? I have booked an appointment with a paediatric dietician in a month orso, but am confused until then whether she can have things that have (smallamounts) soy in the ingredients, as the allergist alluded to the fact that DDshould not have any dairy at all, not even in small amounts in things…. And thusam totally confused…. Does anyone have any advice….

you may have do to food challenges and see what she can tolerate. my dd cant have anything with dairy or soy, even in small amounts. see what the allergist says, they may refer you to a dietician which i would recommend seeing.
