Just started my son on yogurt...I'm worried he may have some sort of allergy to whole milk since he's having a lot of gas and diarrhea. But i don't see any rashes, etc. Should i worry or does he just need to get used to it?

  • Well there is a way u can find out if its the whole milk or not. Gerber has this little yogurt bites, they are actual kinda freeze dry or something, my 2 yo had problems like yours, and I did the same thing, worked lke a charm, she also had the chance to fed herself. When I went back to milk, she did the same thing again. Her doc told me to keep her on formula awhile longer, had more vitamins in that anyway. I tried milk again at 13 months her system was moe mature, never had a problem since./

  • It could be an allergy if he's having diarrhea. Talk to the dr about it. Hold off on giving him any for a bit.

  • It is possible how old is he?

  • 9 months. he loves the yogurt. no vomiting, or anything really serious. i assumed his digestive system just needs to get used to the whole milk. and he only eats a couple tiny spoonfuls a day. his doctor hasn't said anything about an allergy. but, i hate to see my little guy having diarrhea.

  • If it makes him sick, don't give it to him.

    Dairy should not be introduced before age 1

  • My daughter also had diarrhea when I first started her on yogurt. That was around 8 months. I stopped giving it to her and tried again at 12 months and again she had diarrhea. I just tried again about a couple weeks ago and she's 17 months and she did fine. I think her digestive tract just wasn't ready for it. I definitely wouldn't keep feeding it to him and get used to it. Do you want to eat something that gives you diarrhea even if you like the taste?

  • I wouldn't give anything dairy till 12 months. His body probably isn't ready for it.
