DD will be one year old on Wednesday! We are currently breastfeeding and she also eats solids when we eat (BLW). Last week I put a little cow's milk in her cereal to see how she tolerated it. She seemed ok. That's all she had that day. Next morning DH gave her a sippy cup full of cow's milk! *facepalm* I don't think she drank much of it (maybe 2oz tops), but she had 2 HUGE diarrhea diapers later that morning. Her butt got all red too :( So I said no more for a while.
Yesterday I gave her a cup of 1/2oz cow's milk mixed with 1oz breast milk. Shortly after, she had a huge diarrhea stool :(
So, I'm gonna say she isn't tolerating cow's milk lol. I have plenty of dairy in my diet, so I'm not really sure why she's having trouble.
My question is: should I try soy, rice or almond milk next? Which is the best cow's milk substitute?
