Dairy allergies or intolerances

Any other mamas have advice on this? My now 1 year old was exclusively breastfed for about 7-8 months. During this time, she had small blotches on her skin which would sometimes get worse and better. The Dr narrowed it down to eczema and sent us on our way. The medication she prescribed did nothing so her next idea was an allergy. As I breastfed, I was told to cut out milk and wheat products to narrow down a food allergy. Also, didnt do much. Eventually, it just cleared up on it's own. After starting on formula, cereal, and yogurt, she was having diaper blow outs multiple times a day so we are now on the idea that she is lactose intolerant. We have her on lactose free formula and yogurt. She eats cheese every now and again but now the dr wants us to slowly add in whole milk to see if she outgrew it or will outgrow it. Have any other mamas gone through this? How does one go about introducing this after this situation?

I have a 1 year old that get eczema and has a dairy allergy. We do the coconut milk yogurt and soy formula. Now that he’s a year, I researched the best alternatives to whole milk and almond milk has the highest proteins (which is why you give baby’s whole milk at 1 to begin with). And usually the sugar is pretty low even with the vanilla soy milk. (Less than whole milk). We tried the soy milk and the pea protein milk and he didn’t like them. :/

Make your own nut milk, I make walnut milk for my son. Diary is something you should eliminate. There are better ways to get calcium.

Soak walnuts in water over night , blend them with water, add dates for sweetness, and strain using a nut bag

Almond milk might be a little too watery/chalky if your LO is used to dairy milk.

I was a vegan for 8 years. I’ve tried it all. I recommend oat milk... it’s the creamiest. As far as ice cream, coconut milk gives the richest taste. It’s even more delicious than dairy ice cream imo. As far as cheese, cashew cheese is the only way to go. There’s a shredded cheese that tastes like the real thing and even melts like it too.
