Anyone know of a connection? My ds is a big cow's milk drinker, he would drink a gallon in one day if I let him. He is impulsive, hyper and off the wall, bugging the baby, fighting with his other sister totally hyper climbing the fence etc. Very destructive also : ie: Mom I don't like your flowers so I broke them. He said this after he tore all my sunflowers off their stems
. He runs into traffic without thinking etc.
Well the other day we ran out of milk and since with the exception of coffee or some cereal for me once in awhile no one else in the house drinks it so it was no big deal to run out for more.
He has not had milk in 2 days and I cannot believe the difference in him. It's like a totally different child, he has only bugged the baby once (will explain what I mean further down), he isn't fighting as much with his sister, he listened at the store yesterday, hasn't destroyed anything, no running through the house like a monkey, not really climbing except for totally normal playing.
Also he has been in the house 2 days because of rain so not too much sun or other child influences either so I'm not sure if it was the milk 100% but I do think it made a difference. He has had a bit of ice cream but that's all, he won't eat cheese. No other diet changes, except also no red meat in the past 2 days.
What I mean by 'bugging the baby' is playing very rough with her, shaking her bouncer seat very roughly, dumping toys on her, picking her up out of her seat and trying to shake her, kissing her so rough she cries, like repeatedly just pouncing on her face or head with those big rough kisses usually toddlers give. My 2 year old is more gentle generally!
Any imput here? When he does have milk and acts like I have mentioned I am not the only one that has thought adhd, it's been brought up by family and even friends.
