Anyone have a child with a milk allergy and a speech delay? Our pedi said that often times a child with milk allergies has a speech delay and that can actually be the cause if it. So just wondering if anyone else's toddler has one too.

Well I asked my sons speech therapist about it and she said she has cone across it a little but not much. But my so ns doctor said there are studies showing it.

My son had a milk allergy until age two (along with soy and egg) and he is in speech therapy for articulation problems. I have never heard the connection before. I did have a therapist mention the connection with picky eaters though.
