    I have an unsettled bub as well today and am doing anything I can to get him to sleep. He is almost 7 weeks so know how you feel. Poor bubs had his injections yesterday as well as Peadeatrician check up who said he has lactose intolerance😯. Trying everything I can to keep him breadtfeed but pead said probably going to have to put him on formula. Anyone else had experience in this area? I know its not exactly on topic.

    No but a friend had something similar - I thought you could give them something before a feed so they can digest the lactose? My friend had to cut all dairy out of her own diet. Maybe speak to an LC?

    Did he say lactose intolerance or cows milk protein intolerance.

    Breastmilk naturally has lactose in it so cutting out dairy won't help. But if it's cows milk protein intolerance cutting out dairy does help. DS is cows milk protein intolerant and is still breastfed and I'm not having any dairy.

    I would give the no dairy a go first before weaning to formula as lactose intolerance is actually very rare.

    How did the paed diagnose lactose intolerance?

    Mine as well! Tried shushing and patting for weeks while he just stared up at me like 'wtf are you doing lady?' I swear the patting kept him awake and he now starts to cry if you shush in any other circumstance (like at the end of 'where is the green sheep' or the old lady in 'goodnight moon')! Just resting a hand on him works though.

    Agree with all this - true lactose intolerance is pretty much impossible to diagnose in an infant and is very rare. Cows milk protein intolerance is more likely and you can keep breastfeeding (both my kids were CMPI) if you want to.

    I think there is a lot of confusion about CMPI, lactose intolerance, and dairy allergies. But that's a whole other thread!

    @A-Squared is lactose intolerance. Ds2 has explosive watery poos and lots of wind. I have abn oversupply of milk so bubs intenstines cant handle all the lactose in the breast milk. Adding to this i am lactose intolerant as well. Pead said to try lacteeze which are tsblrts given before bf but he said they are hit and miss so bubs would probably end up on lf formula. We are trying the lacteeze as well as block feeding but its pretty hard to manage

    I forgot to add i rang the ABA and they told me about ocm feeding. This should settle the oversupply issue down but could take a few days or weeks. Not sure i can continue to see bubs in pain for that long

    It's horrible isn't it hearing them scream like that!?

    If you're okay with stopping breastfeeding it's the best way to ensure his tummy isn't in pain if he says lacteeze isn't fool proof.

    My DD had CMPI as well as my DS and she went on to Karicare soy milk and she was happier on it. No more screaming and her sleeping did improve.
