Does Whole Milk Cause Constipation In Babies
Whats 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. A word about sippy cups-they keep the tongue forward in an immature suckling position. 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

Love whole milk. Eat cereal in am. When i drink1 extra cup i suffer constipation. Why? Normal diet. Prior to the extra cup i went every day.
No fiber: Whole milk is good for baby cows, but not too healthy for adults. One reason is that it is 100 % digested and absorbed ( unless lactose intolerant). When that happens it sucks the fluid out of the colon along with it. It has 0% fiber. When you have it with your cereal you are getting fiber which holds fluid. Besides whole milk has 160 calories in 8 oz. Drink sugar free almond milk, 30 calories. ...Read more
Is it okay to switch from whole milk to soy milk?My son has been having constipation for a while now and iam very worried. Help
Avoid soy: Soy "milk" is highly processed and is not good to consume - by anybody. You didn't mention how old your son is. If he is an infant he needs a properly balanced substitute if you can't breast feed him. If older he may not even need milk. You may want to consider goat milk if cow dairy is giving him problems. Remember that children need fat for brain development. Stay away from low fat foods. ...Read more

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

Wean breast and encourage table foods after 1year of age. ...Read more
