How can I tell if my 1 year old son is allergic to whole milk?

How can I tell if my 1 year old son is allergic to whole milk?

Remove from diet: Milk allergy can be subtle and does not always show up on acute testing. A good way to determine is to remove it from the diet for a month or so and then reintroduce it. In general milk has some issues...Pesticides, recombinant growth hormones and can be allergenic for many people. ...Read more

My daughter just turned one year old should I stop the formula and shift to regular whole milk? And how much milk should she be drinking per day (ml)?

My daughter just turned one year old should I stop the formula and shift to regular whole milk? And how much milk should she be drinking per day (ml)?

Milk: It is recommended to switch to whole milk at one year. The recommended amount is 2 cups a day (to provide adequate vitamin d) but not much more. When kids are "milkaholics" they actually can become iron deficient. I'd shoot for 2 cups (16oz) per day and stop there. (in a cup - get rid of the bottles too.). ...Read more

My one year old just started drinking milk. He's fine with 2%. But when he drinks whole milk he got bad gas pains, loose stools and bad diaper rash.

Normal: This can be normal. It is recommended that children at 1 year be drinking whole milk. Unlikely due to lactose intolerance since he can already drink 2% milk fine. ...Read more

Regular milk: The neurons (cells) of your kids brain uses cholesterol from their diet to form the insulation around brain connections. Too little cholesterol can lead to developmental delay. Concentrate on a balanced diet with a wide range of nutritious foods. The low fat idea was wrong when they started pushing it 50 years ago and its wrong now. ...Read more

2% vs. Whole: 2% is fine as long as the child is getting fat in his/her diet in other foods (most kids do). If the rest of the diet is lean protein, fruits and vegetables then whole milk would be a better choice for age 1 until 2. The issue is nerve cell development. The fat helps coat the nerves so they develop and work better. No more then 30% of the diet should be from fat though. ...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

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

My son does not want to eat food, since yesterday and also threw up his whole milk. Tried giving him food and says no. What could it be? He is 1 yr old.

Needs to be checked: It is very difficult to say what is wrong with a 1 year old who is refusing to eat
He needs to be checked. It may be he is teething or may have an infection
Meanwhile make sure he drinks fluid and if he throws up even fluids, he may need to be examined asap You can try clear liquids first ...Read more

Lactose: Lactose intolerance is the lack of an intestinal enzyme called lactase and is the inability to digest lactose - the sugar found in milk and other dairy products. Babies are born with the lactase enzyme and most lactose intolerance does not occur until age 3 or older if at all. Symptoms can be bloating, cramps, diarrhea, nausea and poor growth in children. Some races such as asians and african americans are more susceptable to lactose intolerance than caucasians.

Some people will have transient lactose intolerance after a gastrointestinal illness which improves over time.

You can try giving him lactaid whole milk (milk with the lactase already broken down) and see if he improves. If he just has trouble digesting lactose, this could help. If this persists, or if he is having any weight loss, blood in his stool, rash, or any other sign of more serious illness, call your child's doctor. ...Read more

My 1yr old is started whole milk lactaid...Isnt the organic whole milk good for her no matter if its not lactose frer? Or should I stick to lactaid?

My 1yr old is started whole milk lactaid...Isnt the organic whole milk good for her no matter if its not lactose frer? Or should I stick to lactaid?

Confusing question: Lactaid milk more expensive because it has the enzyme added that helps you digest lactose milk sugar, which is common in about 25% of adults. Many kids can become lactose intolerant over time or have it transiently after diarrhea. If your kid is lactose intolerant it is an easy way to get calcium into her diet. Recent studies suggest organics offer little if any benefit over normally obtained food. ...Read more

General diet change: The amount of fiber dictates a lot about the amount of stool you produce. The transition in his formula/milk intake is so minimal at this point with regard to amount of fiber, that I really doubt it has any bearing on how much stool production there is. More likely other changes in his diet to eating more fruits, veggies, grains and dietary fiber than an infant diet has led to the changes in poops. ...Read more

It is possible...: For a 1 year old, you want them to drink around 16-24 oz of whole milk per a day. As long as they are interested in eating solid foods too, that amount is ok. If they seem to only want milk, scale back to 16 oz only. Increase iron-rich foods in your child's diet, like meat, poultry, fish, beans, and iron-fortified foods (cereal, for example). Iron deficiency happens when kids drink just milk. ...Read more

No need: At one year, babies can drink whole milk. Usually we recommend whole milk until at least age 2 before switching to low fat milk, and wait until 3 year of age before giving non-fat milk if you want to do so. Constipation is from the food she eats, not just the milk. Here is an article on constipation. Hope it helps.

What do you expect?: Breast milk has many wonderful qualities ascribed to it, but it is not a panacea. It provides great nutrition as you have already known. The tired and true treatment for nasal congestion in infants is the put saline nose drops in the nostril, then suction it out with a rubber bulb syringe or a nosefrida (www. Nosefrida. Com) to make him comfortable until he gets over his virus on his own. Hydrate also ...Read more

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

Yes, but unlikely: He can be allergic to any food, and that includes goat's milk. However, goats milk is one of the least allergenic foods that there is, so it is generally a good alternative if someone has a serious cow's milk allergy. Your child can be tested to see if he is allergic t the new milk, with either skin testing, clinical trial of the new milk, or blood testing. ...Read more
