Markus is one year and eleven days. When I introduced cows milk two weeks before his bday I introduced 2% because that's what I was getting on my wic checks. He did well and actually really liked it. Once he got whole milk on his wic checks I started giving that to him. He did well for about a week than started getting really bad diarrhea. Took him to the doc after the third day and during those days he didn't really want anything but booby milk. Doc said to wait till he was cleared up and try again. He was fine for about 4 days so I gave him some milk again. He has had milk for a couple of days, been fine until today. He's back to having the same diarrhea. :(. So I guess no more whole milk for him. Gonna try some other milk. What do you ladies recommend?

Dairy issues take a few weeks to clear, so it's possible it was not dairy at all. Track every single thing you feed him to see if you can find anything else. Could have been a bug as well.

For alternate liquid: Water. He doesn't need to receive milk at all, even when you wean. If you're feeding a good variety of foods, milk really doesn't do that much for him. The calcium is available other ways.

Coconut and rice milk are good substitutes, soy milk is a bad idea because it mimics estrogen in the body.
