So my 14 month old who has a ton of allergies found an old cup of coconut milk and drank some. He seems fine and drank very little. But of course I'm still a little nervous. Wondering if this has happened to anyone else. Tia

Coconut milk can cause diarrhea, so if he gets loose stools it is not an allergic reaction. If he did not react within the first 15-20 minutes he is probably fine. If it were spoiled, you say it was old, he probably would not drink enough to get sick because it would taste awful.

Thank you he did great all day and no diarrhea. He drinks coconut milk regularly and I still nurse him.

Also, while kids are often allergic to peanuts, tree nuts or both, coconut allergies are quite rare.
