What to do if I have a one year old baby. For last two days no milk is getting for her. If she suck too nothing coming, what to do for this?
One year old: One year toddlers are generally eating table foods and are generally transitioned to whole milk at this age (as long as no milk allergy has been determined). If your breast milk supply had dwindled/disappeared then transition to whole milk would be your next step. If you have other concerns regarding your todler's feeding I would recommend speaking to your pediatrician for more recommendations ...Read more
Please don't: Theoretically, yes, if the nesquick/milk combination is not too thick. However, please don't feed your one-year old nesquick, or any other sugary food. Nesquick and other similar products have very little (if any) nutritional value, and just put the child at future risk of dental cavities and poor nutrition habits. When the child is older, sweet foods can be had occasionally as treats. ...Read more
One year old was on a soy formula and has been off for a little over a month. Been struggling with constipation since. What kind of milk would be best?
2% milk or soy milk: Some toddlers do get constipated from the casein in milk, especially if they are also getting a lot of other dairy in their diet, such as cheese and yogurt. Soy milk is ok to give, as it also has calcium and a complete protein. He needs at least 2-3 calcium/dairy/soy servings a day for bone health. You may improve constipation with giving prunes, bran cereal. Almond milk is low in protein. ...Read more

1 year old baby transitioning to whole milk, has been fussy, and has loose stool, is she lactose intolerant?
Possibly-: If she was on lactose-free formula and is now drinking regular milk, this could be a lactose intolerance issue. However, if she was on lactose containing formula, it is very unlikely she will not tolerate regular milk because of lactose sensitivity. I'd then look for something else new in her diet which could be the culprit. ...Read more
What is the best milk for a 1 year old? Have heard bad things about uht organc compared to regular pasturized non organic
Regular is fine: Sensitive question. Official national dairy council position - uht organic milk just as safe as "regular" milk. Uht (ultra high temperature pasteurization) allows milk to be stable at room temperature for 6-9 months, but it changes the taste and smell and you can't make yogurt or kefir from it. Even if it's safe, if it won't grow microscopic life, is it really nutritious for kids? Not mine. ...Read more
What is the best milk based formula for a 1 year old with constipation because of whole milk? We already tried 50/50, prunes, and dc said back to form
I just have to say,: The best milk for an infant is breastmilk. No ifs ands or buts. Beyond that the best milk for your baby is the one that works the best for your baby. Unfortunately you sometime have to just do trial and error and find what works the best for your infant. A one year old can eat any food that you eat (but honey), and perhaps adding some probiotic to their diet will help.. ...Read more
Baby is 1 year old. Has had 8 oz whole milk in 12 hours. Now vomiting and 1watery stool. Should I be worried? Do I take her to hospital?
Hydration: Can your baby hold down oral liquids like water? Is this the first time she develops vomiting and diarrhea from milk? If she was able to drink milk before and now stopped vomiting and can keep water down, watch her. If she always reacts to milk, she may be allergic to it, go to the er. ...Read more
My son is one year old. I recently say a report saying milk causes certain diseases. Are there any connections to this?
Depends: Question is rather vague. Too much water intake will give you seizures but we live on the right amount. Same with milk. Cow milk is naturally made for calves, but the right amount gives humans an easy way to get nutrients & calcium, too much in infants can cause microscopic bleeding in the gut & anemia.If allergic there are problems, if you have a specific issue, please be more specific when you ask ...Read more
My son is one year old, should I stop using formula all to gather and start on fresh milk? Fresh milk vs long live milk, is there a different?
I never would: The first 2 years are critical in brain formation and fat and cholesterol are necessary building blocks for brain formation. Failure to have enough access to these in the diet can cause impaired brain development. I never recommend a low fat diet or milk product until after age 2. ...Read more
Needs calcium: Dairy is an easy source of the calcium needed for babies to build bone. They need the equivalent of 4 cups a day. If you are convinced cow mild constipates him there are alternatives. Soy & almond milks are formulated with calcium to meet that need. Goats milk supplemented with folate can also do it. You can also feed the kid antacid tablets (Tums wafers) that would do the job. ...Read more
Still vomiting?: I hope that your little one is not still vomiting. If so, please call his/her doctor. Milk curdles when it has had some time interacting with stomach acid. Throwing up curdled milk isn't as concerning as why is your baby throwing up. I hope he/she feels better soon. ...Read more
Constipation: When transitioning to whole milk, both constipation and diarrhea are very common. Instead of using a milk alternative, I would just ensure that your toddler isn't getting too much milk which may make constipation worse. I would try limiting the milk to 20 oz per day. I would limit all sugary beverages to no more than 4 oz per day and give 8 oz/day or more of water. ...Read more
Yes possible: 1 year olds can develop milk allergy. However, it is important to rule out other causes.

Milk: Yes. Of course.Get a more detailed answer ›
Confirm/ read labels: This does occur but should be confirmed with specific testing. If confirmed, you learn to read labels and set up a plan with your allergist/pcp on what to do in case of an accidental exposure. There are many useful sites on line that include support communities and information on living a milk free life. Many sensitive to cow milk protein can switch to almond milk or other substitutes. ...Read more
My one year old has eczema have found out that he allergy to cows milk he is on gosts can he be allergic to tat too?
Yes, but unlikely: He can be allergic to any food, and that includes goat's milk. However, goats milk is one of the least allergenic foods that there is, so it is generally a good alternative if someone has a serious cow's milk allergy. Your child can be tested to see if he is allergic t the new milk, with either skin testing, clinical trial of the new milk, or blood testing. ...Read more
What do you expect?: Breast milk has many wonderful qualities ascribed to it, but it is not a panacea. It provides great nutrition as you have already known. The tired and true treatment for nasal congestion in infants is the put saline nose drops in the nostril, then suction it out with a rubber bulb syringe or a nosefrida (www. Nosefrida. Com) to make him comfortable until he gets over his virus on his own. Hydrate also ...Read more
My daughter just turned one year old should I stop the formula and shift to regular whole milk? And how much milk should she be drinking per day (ml)?
Milk: It is recommended to switch to whole milk at one year. The recommended amount is 2 cups a day (to provide adequate vitamin d) but not much more. When kids are "milkaholics" they actually can become iron deficient. I'd shoot for 2 cups (16oz) per day and stop there. (in a cup - get rid of the bottles too.). ...Read more
I have a one year old and never breast fed and my breast still produce milk how can I get it to stop and is this normal really need help?
My one year old vomited milk then followed by yellow bile today. She has been having allergen for the past three days. Is there a way to help her?
Bile is always a: Concern. If it truly was bile, you need to take your child to er. On the other hand, it may just be choice of word. Sounds like your child is irritated by the thick mucus behind the throat, which got worst with the milk. Thick mucus caused your child to gag and eventually vomited the " yellow bile" you described. If abdomen is distended, tender and still having bile vomitus, go to er now! ...Read more

One year old daughter crying for breast feed in night. Eats mild solids well. Not drinking bottle milk. Expects me always around her, else she cries?
Possible teething: She may be crying at night for another reason. At a year of age she is conceivably teething thereby giving her pain. Try giving her Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) at bedtime and see if that soothes her. If you want to stop the night time feeds another thing you can try, is to let her cry it out. Go to her when wakes up, sooth her but don't pick her up. After 3-4 nights and you'll get your rest. ...Read more
