we recently discovered that our vegan daughter (7 months old) has a soy allergy!
now, that throws off everything i had planned for her diet. and i don't know what to do, if we can't use soy in her diet. i had planned on soy being her main source of protein and calcium.
i decided to switch her to a vegetarian diet, but knowing what i know about dairy and the malabsorption of its calcium content, i feel as though that is pointless.
is anyone dealing with a similar situation?
is it possible to raise a child on a vegan diet, without using soy?
thanks for any advice!
and , please let me say that i am so happy to have found these boards! i feel so alone among other mommies, while they are discussing how their little ones are eating hot dogs and chicken noodle soup. but now i have all of you!
