Maya ses an paediatric allergist ( a fancy name for an expensive doctor that tells you things you already know and then charges like a wounded bull lol) and he said no rice milk as a sole milk substitute until after 5. I use some rice milk to make custard etc. for her because pepti junior doens't seem to thicken or set, but he said she needs this formula as a main drink to get enough fat, calcium etc. Her formula is heavily govt. subsidised we pay $14 for a weeks supply instead of $90 without a Health Funding #. She gets a HF# because she has tested positive for cows milk and soy allergies.
Interesting tho that your nutritionist has told you rice milk's okay. I have found that I get all sorts of conflicting advice from different drs, dietitians, health nurses etc.
