  • Honestly, if you feed him high calcium foods, he never needs milk.

  • I did an ounce at a time 1 oz each week.. or try 2% (even tho people will tell u not to) than slowly switch to whole after he gets use to it

  • No matter how much or often he gets it, if he is getting diarrhea from it, why keep giving it? Just give him water to drink and feed other dairy if he can handle it or other calcium rich foods.

  • well what kind of formula was he on? for one and two why dont you take him to the doctors and ask them what you can do mine was on soy formula there fore can not have whole milk i give him lactaid which is lactose free whole milk and he does fine on that so maybe try that and take him to the doctors but till then stop giving it to him since it's making him sick
