Default Milk vs Yogurt

Ok, my son has problems with milk but I'm wondering if that fact neccessarily means he would have problems with other dairy products, such as yogurt? Doesn't yogurt have different bacteria in it that would make it benign to someone such as he? Those of you who have problems with dairy would know quite a bit about this I would imagine. To anyone who has played around with this I'd like to hear what your experience was.

Nope, uh, never thought to try it.

Try certified raw milk first, or if you're not open to that, try cultured dairy (yogurt and kefir would be good choices).

I read somewhere that the bacteria in commercial (pasteurized) yogurt is actually "dead" so no benefit there. Maybe home cultured would be a better bet? I personally have the same "issues" with commercial yogurt as I do with any other dairy product, except maybe hard cheeses.

Thanks everyone, I'm looking into raw milk, kefir, yogurt. Choices here in Vegas seem sorta limited so far but I've just started digging so we'll see. I appreciate everyone's thoughts.

Kefir can be found in Trader Joes or Whole Foods, I'll sometimes see it in a regular grocery store here and there as well.

Gittit,
One wants to look on the label for the words (or something similar), "cultured after pasteurization".

you can make your own kefir real easily. Google kefir starter or kefir grains.

We got him kefir and yogurt, so far no problems. He never had kefir before so I wasn't sure how he'd react but he slurped it up.
