Q:

my baby is 20 months now nd all the times i visit her doctor he says not to give her milk nd i never understood why is he saying so can anyone tell me the reason



Sheeba Vijesh

what kind of doctor is that!!! did you tell him something which would suggest baby is intolerant to milk? visit a breastfeed friendly do... it is upto the mom to decide how long she wants to feed the baby...

Milk??? which one..Do your kid have rashes? or the doctor visit is a regular health check-up, vaccination or some other problem ? If kid have lactose intolerance then doctor suggested not to give cow/buffalo/ goat milk...and they suggest some formula milk or soya milk.

my baby is on bottle feed since last year

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

yeah actually ur doc is ryt..
babies r more prone for lactose intolerance..hence, BM or Formula r used..as baby is on FF since birth, it is continued till 18-24months..so dnt worry..follow ur doc advice..its better to give cow/buffalo/any animal milk after 2years..if nt satisfied thn ask him abt almond milk/soya milk..
