NOT GOOD NOT BAD: It has no effect on kidney stone.To prevent recurrence of kidney stones you need to drink increased amount of water, and other fluids you can drink are coffee, lemonade, and occasional beer
avoid black tea in excess, grapefruit juice, apple juice.

Why is it that milk can give you a kidney stone?

Not likely: Milk and other dairy products usually has very little to do with kidney stone formation. Unfortuanately, many health care providers still tell patients this.
