This is a very common problem after a baby has had gastro. It is due to a temporary lactose intolerance. Your baby should be put on a soya formula such as Isomil or other soya formula.Avoid all dairy in his diet. This problem usually disappears after about 3 months and your baby will be able go back onto his cow's milk formula again then.
