Does anyone know if it is safe for a child with milk allergies to have goat's milk or goat's cheese? If she was only lactose intolerant I think it would be fine, but since she is allergic, I'm hesitant to try as I'm not too sure how similar the proteins are. Any advice?

What can be used instead of milk?
Soy formula are often used for milk allergic children. If this is not tolerated, then special casein hydrolysate formulas e.g., Nutramigen, Pregestmil and Alimentum can be used (very few milk-allergic children react to these). Do not use goat's milk or lactose free cow's milk which will cause allergies as well.

Apparently mare's milk is an alternative. Not sure where you'd get it though...

Pretty much all animal milks have casein in them, so it's not a good idea. Plus, you want a milk substitute that is fortified with the nutrients that milk has ... some other milks don't do that. If you go to soy, stick with the higher fat ones - like So Good.

I have read that some people with dairy allergy do not react to goats milk. My DS does react to both goat's and sheep's milk.
