What Is Non Fat Milk Solids
Is drinking low- fat milk better than non fat milk? Had heart surgery...Is non fat milk even good for you vs. Low fat.
Forgive my frankness: Life is difficult enough without people feeding you disinformation. Under california's weird laws, everything is "proven to cause cancer." ask a real scientist or scientific physician and we'll all tell you skim milk is far from a "proven" cause of cancer. It is possible to produce any scare story you want combining junk animal work and retrospective what-did-you-eat studies. Drink if if you want. ...Read more
Wrong ?: As an oncologist, i get asked this question all the time. In my opinion, it's the wrong question to be asking. Even cancer cells, while abnormal, still retain most features of normal cells, so trying to deprive your body of sugar or milk isn't an effective strategy to fight the cancer. A certified cancer program will have a nutritionist on staff to help determine what diet is best for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: The low fat diet is helpful only if fatty foods exacerbate the symptoms. A low fat diet does nothing to prevent problems with gallstones.

NO: Question if soy milk is in the same group as "milk, yogurt, cheese" group. NO. Soy milk is soy based, which is a different protein than cow's milk protein.

My 14 mo old daughter has a milk allergy. What is the best milk substitute? Rice, soy, or almond milk?
What is cows milk protein allergy?What foods to avoid? What's best baby formula to use he also has silent reflux on ranitidine and domperidone
Any cow milk product: Cow's milk is present in most cheeses, yoghurt, cream, butter and hence virtually all dairy. You must read the labels to know for sure. Soy based formulas are the most common alternatives. Your pediatrician should help you select a formula that is milk-free. It may be possible later in childhood to introduce sheep and goat milk products but wait for your pediatrician to give the ok. ...Read more

Breast milk: First i would consult with your pediatrician immediately if your newborn has never stooled as this may involve more than diet. Breast milk is digested more easily and breastfeeding babies tend to have looser stools. However, if your newborn poops but you feel he/she is constipated, i usually reassure parents that all babies have different stooling patterns. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is chocolate milk good for you? I bought no sugar added chocolate milk which is partly made with skim milk.
As doctor have say low fat diet is not healthy does that mean i replace low fat milk with whole milk and eat butter and whole fat cheese?
Low Fat Diet: No i think your doctor did not mean to consume fatty foods but to eat a balanced diet, not one specifically trying to eliminate fats as some fats, like omega-3's are essential fatty acids and quite beneficial to consume. Focus on a plant based diet and learn more about the mediterranean diet as it is regarded as one of most balanced, healthy diets that limits many diseases from developing. ...Read more
Is milk protein allergy and milk protein intolerance the same thing? (Not talking about lactose intolerance).
No: you can have an intolerance with out having an allergy. An allergy can be occur when your body makes antibodies to the milk protein- and an intolerance doesnt necessarily have to be related to antibodies. The most common allergy is IgE mediated, with rash, swelling, hives. An intolerance may not cause those symptoms- they may cause diarrhea ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Variable: This is variable but a common question. Generally infants don't need more than 32 oz of milk per day and this will decrease depending on how much food the infant eats. At a year many infants are taking about 15-20 oz per day in my experience. Some infants will eat more food than others but all will naturally adjust milk intake dependent on food intake. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son is 1 now and still doesn't eat solids hardly at all and is still on a lot of bottles should I introduce cows milk or stay with formula?
Try to lomit btls: I would make sure the kid is brought to the table and sits while others eat.Make sure your meal plan includes something you can mash up and offer him.Over time he will want to sample some of what others eat. I'd continue formula in a sippy cup and only offer water in bottles to protect his teeth.When he is taking one or two solids a day a switch to milk is ok but limit to 24 oz/d. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My niece is on formula milk & solids. When should I stop feed her formula milk? She is 5 going 6 years old
2 1/2 yrs old hypractiv son. Severe eating problems as he drinks milk only. Pl guide to change his eating habits so that he takes solids.
This is complicated: I think you need a pediatrician or pediatric psychologist's help. One thing i can help here is that many kids who drink a lot of milk have iron deficiency. Interestingly iron deficient kids do not want eat solids. Once we treat them with iron, their personality changes and they start eating regular foods. I would recommend that you take your son to a doctor to test if he is iron deficient or not. ...Read more
At what age does solid food, not milk, become more vital for a baby? When can I stop worrying that my baby is getting enough ounces of milk?
Teeth: I believe our body tells us what we need. When teeth come in it is time to start bringing food in. Breast milk is fine but i tell my new moms that when a child has teeth to chew 9 to 10 months is a good time to start bringing in rice and other vegetables. But only bring in 1 every week or 2 so she can watch for adverse reactions. Breast feeding the first 9-12 months is the best option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My two year old boy is only 31 inches. Hardly eats anything solid., only has 24oz of milk per day. Should i be worried about his diet and height?
Review his diet...: Review his diet with his pediatrician. A 2 year old should have a regular diet, with similar solid foods as a 3 year old. A diet of mainly milk usually is not healthy enough. If it is the texture he doesn't like, the solid foods can be mashed up and/or made into porridge type soups. ...Read more

Not if just milk..: If it is just regular milk the baby is drinking, then the baby's diet is not adequate. If it is iron fortified infant formula the baby is drinking, then that is sufficient nutrition yet at 10 onths. Regular cow's milk does not have enough vitamins, iron or correct distribution of nutrients to be the sole food for an under one-year old. Your baby is still really growing fast and brain developing! ...Read more
6 months old started eating solids and now he is totally refusing formula milk. What can I do to make him take his milk?
Change the sequence: Only allow solids when & if he takes what you consider an adequate amount of formula. When you want more of a behavior you reward it with whatever he considers of value. Solids are not necessary to normal growth & development of infants until well past the first year. Limiting the total volume to a few tablespoons or less is enough to begin the transition to table foods. ...Read more
Can I switch my 10 month old from formula to goats milk? Lately she has been refusing formula and only wants to eat solids.
Why bother: Milk is a convenient source of calcium in a kids diet & promoted heavily by the dairy industry as a perfect food, bull! if a kid is exploring other foods, calcium sources like yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, goat cheese and even calcium tablets can provide all they need.They can get the fat/protein/fluid they need thru other diet sources including water. ...Read more
It's ok if i don't give my 7 mo old milk for 1 or 2 days? Cause he refuse to eat solid so badly i tried other ways but still not taking
Teething?: At seven months if he misses several milk feeding no harm is done. Milk only tends to bloat his belly so that he has no room for solids. The other question to answer for baby is whether or not he is teething for if he is he may refuse to eat solid food. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Check for iron-deficiency anemia at a year, which occurs from consuming > 16-21 oz. Of milk & milk products/day & can cause developmental delays. Limit juices to 0-4 oz./day from a cup.

My baby stopped eating solids at 8 months, shes 9 months now and only drinks milk.. She eats a few bites here and there no more. She is loosing weight?
Infant Nutrition: If your baby is consistently losing weight you should see your doctor. At 9 months her diet should still be mostly breast milk and/or infant formula (not cow's milk - do not give cow's milk until 12 months). Solids can help with weight gain but are not strictly necessary. Some children can't swallow solids well (rare) and may aspirate which may explain her stopping solids. ...Read more

My 14-month-old nurses only 3 times a day. Does he need a milk/formula supplement? He eats plenty of solids including dairy at least once a day.
My 6 month baby eats solids she doesn't like any formula i tried all if them , but she doesn't mind a sip of 2^ milk. Is ok to give her that instead?
Infant Feeding: Supplementary food usually is started at 4 -6 months age. If breast fed baby, we encourage mother to continue breast feeding. Your baby may refuse formula for sometime, but i hope, she will start drinking formula again. Prior to 1 year age, no regular milk. Vitamin-d milk is recommended from 1-2 years. After 2 years 2% milk. ...Read more
Mostly milk: A sixth month old baby can begin to eat solid foods. Usually I start babies off with one meal a day, at whichever mealtime is most convenient to mom. The amount is not important but just to try a veggie daily by mouth with a spoon if he will take it! He should be breastfeeding on demand and it is difficult to estimate the exact amount of milk, but 30 to 40 ounces is expected. ...Read more
