Almond milk


If the child has allergy to milk protein then almond milk can be used. But please make sure there are no documented nut allergies. Regular milk is best if there are no known allergies

Time for consultatn


A speech delay in a kid should be evaluated by his doc and possibly a hearing specialist and speech pathologist. Those with chronic ear infections often show some delay. If you wish, your doc could order a blood test to seek evidence of a gluten sensitivity, if negative you can skip reading labels and treating a problem that does not exist.

Many possibilities


There are many possible causes to diarrhea. Infections are a common cause, such as from a bacterial infection (salmonella, shigella, etc), viral infection (i.e. "stomach flu"), or a parasitic infection (giardia, tapeworms, etc.) Additionally, other causes include inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's or ulcerative colitis), irritable bowel syndrome and others. Best to see your doctor for testing.

Many things


It could just be that her stomach is sensitive to stress and her diet. Oftentimes, there can be low level food allergies causing symptoms such as these. The most common food allergies are dairy and gluten also peanuts and certain fruit like strawberries, and citrus can cause problems as well. Another possibility could be a chronic infection like Giardia that needs treatment. Have her see her MD/DO

Lactose intolerance?


Coffee does not cause loose stool but it may be from cream or milk you add to the coffee.It can be due to Lactose Intolerance.Try a non diary creamer and if that stops the diarrhea that will confirm the suspicion of lactose intolerance. If not consult your doctor to find the cause.

These are not likely to cause loose stools unless one has gluten sensitivity, lactose intolerance or milk allergy. All of these are surprisingly common. Whole wheat is no more likely than white flour to cause loose stools. The best way to see if you have issues with these foods is to avoid wheat/gluten and dairy for at least 2 weeks and reintroduce them one at a time to see how they affect you.
