Is almond milk pasteurized? Is it safe to drink whilst pregnant as the milk cartons for almond milk do not say that it's pasteurized
Yes, safe: California produced almonds are required to be pasteurized prior to sale by 1 of 3 methods: Roasting or blanching, steam or Polyethylene oxide contact. The almonds are then ground finely and mixed with water in clean vessels to produce the milk. I cannot comment on almond milk produced outside the USA. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

Formula, but costs $: A 1 year old baby can switch off of formula and start whole cow milk. Formula is somewhat more nutritious but is much more expensive. A baby who is a picky eater and eats little solid food, or has almost no variety in his choice of solid foods, will probably not get enough iron and vitamins from his diet. Such a baby may be better off drinking infant formula until 18 months of age. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby is 11 months.He is breastfed and does not take a bottle. I would like to wean him onto either formula or cow's milk. Bottle or sippy cup?
My 18month old daughter hates cows milk or any milk.She likes youghurt and chees.Is there any substitute for milk or is milk a must for toddler?Thanku
4 letter words: I like to think of milk as a 4 letter word or 4 equivalents.Many kids have an intolerance or dislike for milk, but they need the calcium to grow strong bones. Alternatives are fine. If they get 4 eq ( 4 cups of milk) they will be fine.1 cup yogurt = 1 cup milk;one slice of cheese = 1 equivalent, other milks are 1/1, even flavored antacid tablets often contain 2 equivalents. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which milk is better for my 2yr old baby: Formula, Normal pasteurized Cow Milk or UHT Long Life Cow Milk?
How important is it that a 12-mo-old gets milk? I want to wean, but he won't drink any other kind of milk (cow, goat, coconut, and almond).
Not mandatory: Milk is an easy vehicle to provide calcium, protein, fat, sugar and fluid.All can be provided through alternative sources. Cheeses and yogurt can provide adequate calcium, or two ground up Tums (calcium carbonate) antacid tabs. The rest of the diet can provide the rest. You may find this is just a battle over the breast, and a week or two after you stop the kid may take anything. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is compulsory to start extra supplement like milk, cereal, soup for 4 month baby. I'm still feeding to her. Doc said only mother milk not sufficient .
NO! Doc is WRONG!!!: The world health organization & most experts recommend breastfeeding only with no other foods for the first 6 months of life. It is considered very unwise to add solid foods at 4 months. Your doctor's advice is harming all the babies under his or her care.

I would like to know that for newly born baby, which milk is best, mother's milk or other tinned powder milk?
Diarrhea, soy milk: I don't think drinking soy milk will make the diarrhea worse, but it may be better to stick with water for a few days until the diarrhea clears up. Cow milk will likely make things worse, so avoid that. You need extra water when you have diarrhea to make up for the fluids you are losing. Eat a simple diet of rice or bread, bananas, chicken broth. If you have bloody diarrhea/fevers, see a doctor. ...Read more

MILK REQUIREMENT: Goes down after 1 yr. Too much milk intake causes anemia. 12-24 months should consume 2 cups (each equals 8 ounces/300 mg calcium)/day. 2-8 years: 2-3 cups.

I feed my 16 days old baby entirely on NESTLÉ pro1 as breast milk is too less. Is this formula good or shall I use any other formula?
My baby is 11 days old, breast milk not coming in satisfactory quantity so feeding him on NESTLÉ NAN PRO1, is it safe? Give tips to increase milk
Formula is safe: if you prepare with safe water and use refrigeration. To increase your breast milk, breast feed or pump and express milk every 2-3 hours. Make sure you are drinking enough fluids and nutrition and rest, as your body needs to take care of you before using extra fluids and calories to produce milk. Sometimes the baby is too weak to breast feed well and needs the extra calories to get stronger. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
