    @Gelati: no virus is good news. Are you using Nan LI now? I think a bit of lactose is fine since you didn't seem to have problem when mixing with rice water.

    DS certainly didn't have gastro to start with but i think his gut has become so sensitive over time (6 months of surffering!). Yes, 3 months is a good plan. If DS really has real lactose problem, which is likely from what we had been experiencing in the past 6 months, a friend suggested us to hold off re-introducing it until 1 yr old. I described everything to this friend and she told me that the symptoms are exactly like her second DD. Her DD was on aptamil de lact until 1 yr old. They re-introduced it but she still couldn't handle it. Now, the paed told her to wait until 4 yrs old. I will see how things go.....i probably won't want to rush back re-introducing lactose into his diet. This has been a nightmare for us. It is so hard to diagnose because all symptoms are so similar to one to the other (colic, lactose problem, cow milk protein allergy etc).

    DS got the cold from childcare for sure. I think it is good for his immune system. Of course, as long as he isn't getting the flu!

    @bbhope how is ds now? Back to normal poo's

    Ds has been on lactose free for almost 48 hrs now and his poo's have gotten worse. Going 5 times a day again l. Why would it get worse? There isn't any good reason why he would be worse on lactose free formula. I'm sure he doesn't have a milk protein allergy.

    He's also lost a lot of weight but I think that's due to the rice water we've been giving him so I've stopped that now. He still has quite a bit of every and not acting any different. Still a big appetite. I just don't understand it's been almost 3 weeks

    @Gelati: I would go off rice water and see what happens. If it doesn't work, perhaps pump your breastmilk and feed him when he recovers? This will be lactose free completely. I don't want to give you bad advice because i know you have worked really hard to keep up the supply. Go with your gut feeling.

    I have to find out about his poo situation when i get home tonight. No idea about the poo on day 1 on aptamil de lact because i couldn't ask the childcare carer who went home early. It was OK on day 2. No poo on day 3. Today is day 4.

    His cold was pretty bad yesterday. DS vomited while lying on his back for the first time. He always vomited when on tummy. DH wanted to stop giving DS solid again but i said no. We have stopped feeding him solid for so many weeks now. His diarrhea has finally stopped. We cant avoid the solid forever. Besides, I feel like he is better off eating more solid than formula in a longer term. I didn't introduce any new food to him. Judging from the timing, it must be the overnight feed that's coming out. Seriously, I really hope that it has nothing to do with the formula!!!!!!!!!

    Oh....DS slept through the night for real last night. 7:30pm--5am. No interruption. Needless to say, this is due to him being sick. Poor little guy!!! I don't think this is a good thing when he can only sleep through while being sick. Because we are so used to wake up many times at night, DH kept checking on him last night to make sure he was OK. That means not much sleep for him despite DS slept through. His wishful thinking is that perhaps DS finally realizes asking for dummy is counter productive and will sleep through from now on. Hahahaha....i laughed. Baby brain doesn't work that way. I think it is a habit for DS asking for dummy. Last night has proved that he can fall asleep without it and no night feed.

    @Tanej78 wow you go girl. 9kg weight loss so far is awesome effort. That's good that DH is home too. Happy anniversary! How did you celebrate?
    @bbhope so sorry to hear DS finally slept through the night but because he's sick. Hah yeah baby's brain wouldn't know dummy is counter productive. The only way to stop dummy is to not give it to him but he needs the dummy with his colic? What solid food are you feeding him now?
    @Gelati I wonder why his poo has gotten worse when he's on lactose free formula. So weird. Are you still mixed feeding?

    Dummy helps his reflux. It also helps his teething pain now. I started out with one type of food for at least 2 days. Once per day. Very conservative approach. Now, i am feeding twice a day but 1 serve only. I'll slowly increase it when DS gains confident on solid. So far, we tried butternut squash, apple, pear, carrot, sweet potato and rice cereal. I home made most of the puree and store them in the freezer. A guideline says carrot is only suitable from 6 months. I didn't know. We only started trying sweet potato today. I haven't given him banana just yet. A lot of people warn me that it gives babies constipation. Who would have thought?! It gives gas as well so i am holding that one off. DS has no patience so we always end up giving him half bottle first and then solid. Otherwise, he will scream hungry! I am keeping rice cereal in the diet because it seems to keep him full -- wishful thinking of skipping the night feed. Actually, no night feed has happened a few times with formula feeding alone.

    @bbhope poor ds. Is he feeling better today? Does he have a lot of congestion?

    It feels like one thing after another doesn't it? Good for you in feeding ds so many different foods. I'm still waiting for ds to get over his diarrhoea before starting on solids.

    Ds diarrhoea is getting worse. Gp said keep going with breastmilk tho. I don't think it's the bm giving him diarrhoea. Might see a paed next week. His bum is getting red now from all the diarrhoea. I just don't get why lactose free formula isn't helping? Everything on the Internet and dr said it should unless his stomach is just too sensitive atm and not taking any formula well. How long should I see a difference with the lactose free formula? It's already been2.5 days on it now. I thot I would see a difference by now.

    @Gelati: he is feeling better today so now he is back to frequently waking up at night. Grr.....I just went to buy a vaporizer. I hope it eases his congestion. He is so congested but he doesn't know how to blow his noise. I can hear stuff in his lung.

    Did you get the poo result? DS diarrhea stopped after a day on lactose free. It works wonder for him. It doesn't get him constipated for 2 days like the nan LI so we are happy with the aptamil de lact. Sorry to hear that your DS still has the diarrhea. If bacteria, he needs to be on antibiotic so best to see paed. Yes, listening to the GP if he/she doesn't think is breastmilk problem.

    Poor ds. Congestion sux. I read online that Vicks vapour rub can help? Or other decongestants for babies. Can't remember now. For the vaporiser are you getting cold or warm air? Sometimes having Bub with you when your having a shower can help. You can use those Nasal drops to help with decongestant the nose.
    Stool test came back with no virus or bacteria. I've given ds some mashed bananas I heard that helps. Nan LI certainly not making ss constipated lol. He's gone 4 times today now. Otherwise he seems fine. Huge appetite today.

    @Gelati: every baby is different. Other than the green color poo from aptamil, DS poo is normal texture for baby on solid. Only the vick vapor rub for baby is safe to use. No menthol in it. Any decongestant isn't recommended for babies younger than 2 yrs old, i think. I am getting the warm one. Vick only sells one type a tthe pharmacy. Ya, we are giving DS warm bath. DS dosen't even let us wipe his nose, i don't think he would let us put the nasel drip! I will see if using the vaporizer helps.

    Hmmm....interesting. I wonder if it is something in Nan since both you and my DS developed something after being on it for a while. However, DS hasn't agreed with any of the formula other tahn the lactose free so far! Yes, banana will dry up. DS has lost his appetite, though.

    @bbhope banana caused even more diarrhoea so no more banana. Sigh. What is happening? The only thing that is working is rice water!

    Yes maybe it's the nan comfort? But you said when you used nan LI ds became better right? Whereas our son is getting worse on it. I'm gonna stick it out for a few more days, maybe one week and see if he gets any better. Otherwise I may try soy or goats milk. But I'll see a paed before I switch.

    Aw i hope he feels better soon. Let me know if the vaporiser works.
