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

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

Im dieting my 4yrs old with dairy products due to severe constipation, backpain. Is almond milk gluten free ok and safe to use as alternative?

Im dieting my 4yrs old with dairy products due to severe constipation, backpain. Is almond milk gluten free ok and safe to use as alternative?

Not best choice: Not all almond milk is gluten free. Check the label. Almond milk is very low in protein and fat which growing children may need. It can be high in sugar too. The almonds need to have been soaked/dehydrated first to rid phytic acid which blocks mineral absorption and causes tummy distress. Positives: iron, riboflavin and vitamin e, extra calcium. ...Read more

Fiber: When you change diets from one country to another, it's normal to experience some change in bowel habits initially. For constipation you can continue with your fruit and nuts and drinking 64 oz of water daily. You might also try adding a fiber supplement like benefiber or metamucil. If you go more than 3 days without a bowel movement or they're hard and pebbly still you should see a doctor. ...Read more
