    MY 6 year old was when she was a baby. She was cranky especially about an hour after a bottle, she had a runny nose, a bit of congestion all the time. The Dr switched her to Soy no improvement she finally went onto straight goats mil and all was better.

    Default Lactose intolerant?

    Ds1 was always really upset and was a different baby once he had done a poo! So much happier, until after the next feed. His poos never became solid even when he started solids and was put on formula. They where like water! I changed him to lactose free formula and he became a much happier little boy and his poos became solid.

    The energy source in goat milk is also lactose.

    Default Lactose intolerant?

    We saw a dr last week & she said DD might be lactose intolerant so we had to change her formula. We have changed it to lactose free & her symptoms are clearing up. She has had runny poos, sore tummy after a feed & before a dirty nappy & her breathing was loud etc like above post.

    Have your babies grown out of it or if not how did you go when bubs started solids etc when they were older?

    My daughter is fine with milk now. No problems we switched her back to cows milk when she was a bout 4 with no more problems.

    Default Lactose intolerant?

    You can buy L. Reuterii, made by Blackmores in chemists. Here is some evidence that it works;

    95% of babies are better in a week.

    Default Lactose intolerant?

    I think he may have grown out of it. He has just stopped having milk everyday (started on rice milk at about 16 months) but has yoghurt and cheese pretty much every day and he is fine no upset tummy. He is two now 😊

    Default Re: Lactose intolerant?

    Most kids grow out of it. Mine didn't.
    At 5 he is on lacteez (sp?) We get from the chemist. It's the only medication that helps.
    It makes life so much more normal.
    We use soy and rice milk where we can. Soy yogurt and dairy free ice cream. Soy chocolate is also a favorite.
