    Default Bad reflux and cow's milk

    I've noticed my baby's reflux worsening as I've started to drink more milk in order to get more calcium. I am wondering if anyone here has a baby with cow's milk allergy? And how did you know that he/she had a cow's milk allergy? What were the symptoms? Does anyone have a baby with reflux? Have you noticed cows milk making it worse? What do you eat to get calcium? I've read that the calcium in vegetables isn't as easily absorbed by the body.

    And vitamin D too. Vitamin D is really important for the body to properly use calcium.

    Make sure to get your daily dose of sunshine!

    I could not eat dairy with my first 2. (Or meat, or acidic foods, or foods that made me gassy like lima beans. It's part of the reason why I stopped BFing them at 10 weeks). I took a basic calcium supplement, and took my pre-natals.

    Thankfully, #3 tolerates pretty much everything I eat, I just can't over do it.
