My 1 year old baby is formula-fed. Is it better to start giving her cow's milk instead? Which one is better for her: formula or cow milk?

My 1 year old baby is formula-fed. Is it better to start giving her cow's milk instead? Which one is better for her: formula or cow milk?

Cows milk: You can begin feeding your one year old whole milk, but make sure it isn't two percent or skim milk. Your baby needs the cholesterol for nervous system development. Formula is more nutritious and it has added vitamins and other elements added to it to help babys development. Read more

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?

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

Can a baby of one year old drink nesquik with milk?

Can a baby of one year old drink nesquik with milk?

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

Which is the best formula milk brand for babies. I have a one year two months old son.?

Which is the best formula milk brand for babies. I have a one year two months old son.?

Best formula: The best "formula" for babies is nothing than your own breast milk. I hope you breastfed your baby. Breast milk or formula is recommended for babies until a year old. Since your baby is now 14 months old, you can switch him to regular whole milk or evaporated milk. 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?

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?

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

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?

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?

1 YEAR OLD: When you give your son whole milk instead of formula, you are giving him the chance to eat table foods, veggies, fruits and meat products. Formula is the complete food when they are younger. Read more

Can I give low-fat milk to a one-year old?

Can I give low-fat milk to a one-year old?

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

Does my one year old absolutely need dairy milk? It's making him really constipated.

Does my one year old absolutely need dairy milk? It's making him really constipated.

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.

I have a one year old vomiting curdled milk?

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

Can I give my one year old almond milk? Dairy is constipating him too much.

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
