    Default Tell me about your kids dairy allergy

    DD was diagnosed as lactose intolerant after a horrific 7 months. We put her on a lactose free formula and it was magic....like having a brand new happy baby overnight! Now she is 14 months, we are trying to transition to cows milk. On our paed's suggestion we added 10 mls of normal cows milk to her bottle to see if she'd outgrown the lactose intolerance. That was a disaster- def still lactose intolerant.
    However, bub is still really unsettled on even tiny amounts of lactose free cows milk. She is constantly grumpy, whingy and clingy...very abrupt change of behaviour. She is farting like a brass band (!) and has some loose poo/borderline diarrhoea. She has also got a nasty rash on her back and chest and a horrible nappy rash (first time ever).
    Am I being silly thinking that there may be a dairy allergy or something there as well as lactose intolerance? Paed sneered at the suggestion, but it seems more than just a normal transitional sensitivity.....
    Thoughts? Thanks heaps

    My oldest is 8 1/2 years old with a dairy allergy. She;s anaphylactic to the milk protein (not sure about the lactose, lactose causes intolerances, not anaphylaxis but it's impossible to test out if she is lactose intolerant, but it def sounds like your bub has an intolerance to the protein at least.
    Try baking something with dairy in it and giving that to bub. The protein changes through each cooking process so you started with bakes, then move to cooked after they've tolerated back for 6-12 months (just when bub can tolerate it, but 6-12 months is a good guide of how long it will take) and then move on to cow's milk.

    I would be asking for a second opinion. That does sound a lot like an intolerance to something else as well.

    My ds is lactose intolerant, but is so fair fine with LF cows milk.
