Depending on what kind of formula you were using throughout infancy, an allergy typically would have been a problem earlier. "toddler" formulas are more costly and you hate to restrict her diet if she does not have a true allergy. I suggest you talk more with your pediatrician or have allergy testing performed to confirm a true allergy. ...Read more
