Question about Milk.

Posted by beautifulmithra on 2009.05.26 at 18:12
I just found out my son is allergic to cows milk, wheat, and beef.

Will WIC supplement my milk for an alternative kind he can drink?

my son also cannot drink cow's milk, our WIC gives us Goat's milk for my DS. They will also start carrying soy milk in our state as of June 1st.
I'm in CT

That's great to hear.
I know my son could tolerate goat's milk. I am in Ohio. I haven't heard anything about them carrying soy, but that would rock.

they don't like to advertise that they will give goats milk. But after prodding them forever and complaining that he wouldn't drink the soy formula that they gave us, they FINALLY gave us evaporated goats milk, which i just make 3 cans of at a time and keep in the fridge. Works great, and I use it in my cooking too. Have found it tastes pretty decent.

Yes as long as you have a doctors note. Good luck

Great. I forgot to grab one from her today, but I will get her to fax one over to me tomorrow.
Thank you. :)

It depends on the area and what exactly he is allergic to. If it's just a lactose intolerance, most areas will allow Lactaid with a doctor's note. Not all areas allow other substitutes, however. Some areas are beginning to offer soy milk and some offer other options, but you'll need to ask at your specific office.

Yeah, I'll have to call them up tomorrow.
He's autistic, and we've recently discovered he's allergic to gluten and casen... As recently as today. lol
