2 year old allergic to dairy

My almost 2 year old has a milk protein allergy. We have been giving him a hypoallergenic formula since I stopped breastfeeding when he turned 1. We want to switch him to another milk. We tried hemp milk but he wouldn’t drink it. He can’t do any nut milk since he’s allergic to nuts. He’s also slightly allergic to peas so i don’t want to do Ripple. What do you think the healthiest Milk alternative is?

    This sounds like a question for an allergist

    Oat milk?

    I’ve noticed oat milk has more sugar... I have discussed this with our allergist- the decision is ours- we know what he needs to avoid. The rest is up to us.

    Oops. Sorry. My allergist gives us advice on what do give. Can you do soy? Or...why do a milk substitute at all?

    My son has a soy intolerance and a tree nut allergy and my husband has a milk protein allergy. We use oat milk a lot in our house. Both hubby and tot prefer Oatly original brand to silk. I mostly use it to make dishes like stroganoff and Alfredo that typically have a dairy factor or when they want cereal. I'm not sure it's 100% best alternative but it works for my family.

    Have you tried goat milk. My LO has been drinking that since I stopped breastfeeding and loved it.
