    Default Can baby eat too MUCH yogurt?

    Lo gets it for breakfast sometimes and sometimes she eats a TON of it. I started wondering today if there could be anything bad about letting her have so much. We give her plain yogurt and I add fruit to it. She's 12 months.

    TIA!

    How much is a ton? A tablespoon? 1/2 a cup? 1 cup? 2 cups?
    Is she constipated or showing any other signs that it's bothering her?

    She could easily eat a cup of it (mixed with fruit)--and prob a lot more if I let her.

    It doesn't seem to bother her at all. Could eating a lot of it every day lead to a milk allergy?

    You either are allergic to milk or you're not. It's not caused by how much you eat. I would watch her for signs that it might be upsetting her and making sure she wasn't eating so much that she didn't eat other important food like veggies. But other then that I don't see a problem. It might just be a phase too so just roll with it.

    If she handles it fine, then go with it. If she is getting loose stool from too much(from the beneficial bacteria), just limit it a bit.
