My daughter is 1 year old and she is my only child. Yesterday we began to switch our daughter over to Organic whole milk. We added 4 oz of whole milk with 28 oz of formula.. Yesterday afternoon her nose started running and I thought it might be because she is teething but last night she woke up screaming and crying and she was struggling with breathing because the mucus was so thick. It then hit me that she may have a milk allergy. She has never had a recation to anything else we've given her before including yogurt bites (gerber) and yogurt drinks. If this is a milk allergy what do I do for her? Do we continue to give her small amounts so her body will get over the allergy or do we need to stop the whole milk completely? Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
