does anyone know if raw milk is easier to tolerate than pasteurized/homoginized milk?
my daughter (who just turned 12 moths) is having a difficult time with milk. She eats yogurt and cheese without difficulty ever, but the larger quantities of milk seem to be difficult for her. Because I got extremely sick when she was a month old and could not breast feed (or, more accurately, provide pumped breast milk) beyond her second month, she's been on formula.
I was looking forward to transitioning her away from formula onto milk. But she developed diarheah and a rash that looked like I'd poured acid on her bum! Since then she's been drinking soy milk and is feeling much better.
Problem is, I don't like soy milk because it is such a highly processed product and so NOT natural. Natural, organic, ethical foods is very important to our family and I feel very stuck at the moment. It's only been about a week that she's been taking the soy milk, but I was wondering if-- even hoping-- that raw milk might be somehow different for her.
DOes anyone know if it is worth a try? Or, short of that, if there is another milk like substitute that is healthy and not ultra-processed? She hates juice (which is fine by me as there is an aweful lot of sugar in juice for such a young child) but will drink water.
