He has pimples? Stomach ache ? He vomits ? It's his milk, do you think! Maybe ... but be careful. It is better to consult the pediatrician before changing his eating habits. The point with Professor Jean-Michel Lecerf.


You changed milk

  • Cow's milk? Too much protein, your baby will not digest it! But infantile milks, you are very tempted ...

What has to be done :

  • Do not go from one milk to another without the doctor's advice. You could, in case of real problem, hide the symptoms. The first age milk that was recommended to you is a priori perfectly adapted to the needs of your child, but you can take the equivalent in another brand! Similarly, changing to 6 months of age-old milk at 2nd age, richer in protein and better adapted to vitamins and minerals, can not harm him.
  • Your pediatrician, if necessary, will guide you on a thickened milk against regurgitation, acidified against diarrhea, hypoallergenic by prevention in case of antecedents ...

He is patriotic

  • Your child loses appetite, vomits repeatedly, has fever? Go to your pediatrician to find the cause.

What has to be done :

  • Is this intolerance recent, violent? Does his vomiting come with diarrhea? This can be his first gastro! In this case, total eviction of milk for 24 hours will be recommended.
  • Other causes, infectious (rhino, otitis ...), digestive (intestinal obstruction, gastro-oesophageal reflux ...) or psychological (depression ...) can also be at the origin of this transient intolerance.

He has a real intolerance

  • Lactose intolerance, although very rare before age 2, may affect your child, especially if you are Asian or Indian. It causes abdominal pain and diarrhea. More frequent in the first months, the allergic reaction to cow's milk protein worsens with time. Symptoms: small red patches, gas, breathing problems and sleep ...

What has to be done :

  • Intolerance to milk fades at the entrance to kindergarten. In the meantime, your doctor may remove the milk for some time for observation and, in case of confirmed intolerance, prescribe a dietary food based on soy or hydrolysed protein. No doubt you know soy milk. Be careful, your baby may have a cross allergy to soy.
