Has it been diagnosed by the doctor? They should be able to prescribe formula for him? It would probably be best to try and make as many meals from scratch as possible as like you say so many foods that contain milk. He should be able to still have a varied diet without milk. And I think the the "free from" aisles have quite a lot more foods these days.
We're getting our son tested soon as I think he might have an intolerance to milk as he has quite bad eczema so if I get more help from the doctors I'll update you!

Try tomoto based meals, make a tomato sauce by reducing a tin of tomatoes with some fried red onions (can easily add any veg- slice carrots, broccoli or courgette) and a sprinkle of garlic and basil. This sauce can be added to tuna and pasta, just pasta, in a piece of baked fish, added to some mash potatoes.
I make a homemade hummus with either chickpeas, or butter beans ( am going to try broadbeans this week) I give this to Annabel on toast, pitta bread or even with sweet potato wedges or on a baked potato.
Lots of food can be made without milk, vegetable and meat purees, rice/pasta based dishes. It just takes a bit of time to discover what is quick and simple to make thAt your nephew will enjoy.
Have a look at our receipe exchange thread in General Weaning. You will get some good ideas from there. Once he has had allergy testing you will know more about what you can and can't give.

Just another thought Kimbo, you can make porridge or cereals without milk. Weetabix can be mixed with water or even orange juice. porridge can be also mixed with water and perhaps thickened with a fruit puree or even fruit pieces.
