i think my 1 year old is milk allergic

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

my one year old  had a very bad diaper rash at the time   

she ate two small meals a day and 3 bottles of milk 

 

now she eats two meals 

and ive been tryna get her off the milk so id give her water or half juice and rest water

 

her diaper rashed cleared up when i  started to do it this way 

then i gave her the milk back  iam sucker she likes the milk for comfort while sleeping or watching movies 

when i gave her milk back the rash kinda came back but not as bad as before 

an also her mouth had little red dots on top lip i notice the same dot  from when she was drinking milk first time an  it went away  with the diaper rash  when i stopped giving her milk 

idk should i not give her milk

Try a non cow milk.  My ydd is 2.5 and allergic too I think.  I give her almond milk.

You should not be giving her dairy if you are sure this is from the milk.  There are plenty of alternatives.

Oat milk is easy to make. Put some rolled oats in mason jar or pan, add boiling water and let cool. You can make your own rice milk (unless you're worried about arsenic) or nut milks. Hemp seed milk is supposedly also good, though I haven't tried that one.

There are websites where you can get information on making your own milk, vegan sites also have that info, and there are commercial milks available, too. I avoid the commercial ones, but they can help when getting started.

Be aware that milk is used in other things, so you may soon be reading labels and looking for cheese alternatives.

Good luck!
