In brief: Check with doc first

If she truly has milk allergies, you may want to check with doc about using elemental formula such as nutramigen or alimentum etc.
..Soy is also an option, but i would check with her doc first. These may help with her reflux as well. If not, med such as Prevacid or Zantac (ranitidine) can be used for reflux etc..Thickening formular with rice cereal may help also. Consult doc...Good luck.
