The other day I made french toast for me and my son. (He is 10 months.) Without thinking to much about it, I added whole milk (usually I use skim, but I used whole milk because of Bryce.) He seemed fine that day and the next, except for maybe pooping a little more then usual. Two days later I made it again, but this time, I used skim milk, because we were out of whole milk. After he ate that, he seemed a little more fussy and more poopy. (Then again, he woke up sick the next day, so maybe that was it.) Anyways, I was just wondering what the protocol is for giving babies under 1 regular milk. I know they can't drink it out right, but they are allowed to have whole milk products (cheese, yogurt...) So I was just wondering if that is okay and if I should use whole milk all the time when cooking for Bryce. When making tuna casserole or real mashed potatoes, I use skim, and I let Bryce eat that stuff. Is that okay? Also, Bryce gets very constipated after eating cheese type baby foods (mac and cheese, broccoli and cheese...). Does that mean he may have a milk allergy, or it's just one of those things?
Also, for the women who have cooked using breast milk, would you use that the same way you used regular milk? Because I read one post from a woman saying she waited until the coffee cooled down before putting breast milk in it. So I just wondered if you could cook with it, like so I could maybe make his french toast with it instead. Thanks.
