Does Almond Milk Cause Constipation
Not usually: I have not seen constipation as a result of almond milk. Dairy can be constipating as can apples or apple juice in some. Not drinking enough fluid definitley. Bananas, sweet potatoes in some are foods that can cause constipation.

I'm 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

Constipation: Some foods pull water into the stool (like prunes) and some foods remove water (like cereals and rice). To prevent constipation -- if you are otherwise well -- make sure you are taking in enough fluids and plenty of fruits and vegetables.

What's the best whole milk but has to be lactose free for my 1 yr baby and that doesn't cause constipation? Or all of them cause?
Lactaid is one : Brand name, but there are others. 16-21 oz./ day of milk & milk products is recommended. At that amount, constipation usually isn't a problem.

Since the same muscles used for drinking & eating are used for speech, an open-mouthed or " commuter" cup that promotes lip closure is preferable. ...Read more

Does lactose free milk cause constipation in infants? My daugther is 1 yr and she started lactaid whole milk, could this be making her constipated?
Not likely: If the only thing that's changed is the addition of lactaid milk it's a possibilty. It depends on what else baby is eating and was eating before the switch. Breast fed babies usually have soft, frequent stools, so if you just switched from breast, I'd expect stools to be firmer. Make sure she's getting 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day and the constipation should resolve. ...Read more
