Help me out here. Since we stopped breastfeeding, it's been a struggle to get A the "proper" amount of calcium that our doctor wants. Since he cannot have dairy products, he drinks soy milk. The kind we use is 45% daily allowance per 8 ounces. He drinks about 8-12 ounces a day. That's all I can get him to drink. Foods with calcium? Nothing out there screams calcium. We supplement him with a vegan powder vitamin that supplies him with 25% more. After that? Well, there is a soy yogurt, but he'll only eat it sometimes, and honestly, when he does eat it, he gets diarrhea. So I think the live cultures are milk based.
Anyway, I stress sbout this eery day. I'm counting his calcium like a dieter count calories.
What are you all doing? Do you even think about calcium? Even if your toddler is on milk, do you obsess? Talk to me!
