My DH was fed carnation milk it was totally normal where he grew up. He suffers terrible allergies, and asthma - even though there is none in his family.
Is it strange that I don't know the answer to this?
I know I was breastfed to 3 months and then bit my mum but not sure what happened after that.
Must ask her next time we are talking and will post then cause I had asthma, allergies and digestion issues.
I was breastfed for a few weeks, then cows milk formula, but didn't tolerate it so had prescription soy formula I think. Have a few minor digestive issues, and if I have too much dairy now I get sinus type infections and upset tummy but it's not straight away.
Both dh and I were breastfed for 3 to 6 months then ff fed until 12 to 18 month's with a mixture of cows milk and formula. We are both allergy free and can tolerate high amounts if cows milk and lactose now. We dont have any digestive problems with anything.

I was bf till about 7ish months then straight onto cows milk and food with cows milk. No problems. Same with my younger brother.

Mum said by 6 months I hated cows milk as well so she used to offer me diluted chamomile tea.
Not ideal I know. But I've never had a broken bone in my life, have had bone density tested and I'm fine.
Ps I wouldn't try the same on my own kids though!
I was breastfed up until 6 months then I was put on sunshine powdered milk as we lived on a remote cattle station and there was no such thing as 'popping down the shop' for formula or fresh milk. I have no allergies, and have a completely normal diet, no probs.
Oh, I also got whiskey when I wasn't well or teething, to put me to sleep! No doctors or panadole where we lived.

I was breastfed for a little while, though not exclusively, and was fed a bottle that was one tablespoon of sugar, one ounce of boiling water, and the rest topped up with cows milk.
I have food intolerances that come and go, I developed dairy intolerance in my teens that caused me to lose a lot of weight, that lasted til my twenties. Not long after that I developed an intolerance to gluten, again lost a lot of weight, (I was so sick from this, I weighed 43 kgs, didn't menstruate for about 18 months, and people thought I was anorexic or had cancer), there's been others over the years.
I have a very sensitive gut. I think it's all related to how I was fed as a baby.
