Ok A little backround for you guys because I don't post often. My son Adrian he is now almost 13 months.
He had milk protein sensitivity (different from allergy). Anyways. He is was on Alimentum for about 10 months. The pedi suggested that we gradually wean him onto regular Similac Advance before onto whole cow's milk.
The wean onto Advance was fine. He handled it well. Only slight bowel changes. He was on that for about 1 month. Then it came time to try whole cow's milk. The instant I gave him whole milk the diarrhea started right back up just as bad as it did when he was an infant. (. Anyways, of course I called my pedi right away and they suggested to try Lactaid. I did that night try it. There was some inprovement for about 2 days and then right back to litterally $hit!
Fast forward a little bit. He had his one year check up last night. We discussed his options. She suggested soy, which i'm very very hesitant to try, I've read awful things. (Horomones etc.) So she said to put him back on the the Similac Advance. So i'm thinking awesome great that will solve all our issues. Well it did untill I called the w.i.c office and they told me there is no way for them to issue him that. They even tried a state override and it couldn't be done. Due to his age (13 Months almost). w.i.c told me the only other choice is to put him back onto Alimentum or try full out Vita D cow's milk again to see if he's ready?
I DO NOT want to see my lil man miserable anymore. And being honest I cannot afford to buy his formula totally out of pocket. Are there any other options here? Why did he tolerate regular (milk based) formula and not Vita D cow's? I'm so confused and really upset. Any advice or input please?
