My son is usually very happy and goes with the flow, but since he started milk, he's been cranky and very sensitive. Any advice?

  • His tummy may be hurting adjusting to the milk, or he may have a slight lactose intolerance. For a 24 hour period write down how son acts, and at what times, and how much milk he is gettign and when, then call his doctor and talk to a nurse or make an appt for him. Thats the only way to help figure it out. :o) good luck.

  • my son did this - although we wouldn't have noticed much of a mood change since he was a crabby kid anyway but I know at night time he wouldn't sleep so we switched to soy and it made all the difference in the world, then I lessened the dairy and he became happier in the daytime and started stooling for the first tiem with out help..yay!!
