My dd had a stomache bug with a fever lasting friday night through saturday night. She had one instance of diarrhea again today, should I stop giving her whole milk? She has been getting a couple ounces here and there to start the weaning process. It didn't seem to bother her before the fever, which was a little over a week after we started giving her milk. She's almost 11 months old.Answer Question

The milk isn't causing her to have the diarrhea if she has the stomach flu, unless she gets diarrheawhenever she drinks milk before the flu. If it isn't bothering her tummy then the milk is fine (if she isn't gassy or irritable) but if her tummy isn't taking to the milk switch to Lactose Milk it's just has good as regular milk but gental on the tummy.

Babies under 12 mo should get zero milk. Formula was invented because cow's milk kills babies or harms their digestive and other systems. The adverse health effects may be lifelong. That's why the APA and all other health organizations recommend giving no cow's milk to babies under 12 mo. No Lactose Milk (Lactaid?). I have had digestive problems my whole life because my mother gave me milk. I have been on medications and a special diet since the damage was discovered when I was a child.
