Can a toddler who drinks soy milk every night  have an allergy of coughing?

Yes and it might not: Be related to the soy .My ? Would be: how old is the baby? Are you using soy because you suspect allergy? Or just out of choice? How long has coughing been going on? Just @ night? Daytime too? Awakens the baby?..Try to think about all of these things then speak to your pediatrician or a board certified allergist. Also, how soon before the baby goes to bed are you giving bottle? Try it earlier. ...Read more

If she is overweight, that needs to be controlled because early pubic hair is often seen in overweight kids who may then develop early puberty. Any secondary sexual development prior to age 8 in a girl should be medically followed. Pediatric endocrinologists are often consulted. ...Read more
