My LB is 10 months few days my granny told lo doesn' t want to drink his milk during the day, he will drink only water the whole day but at night as he would drink his milk about (120-480mls). Now yesterday he refused to drink his milk the whole night he drank water only. Which no milk at all for a day.

He eats porridge, vegs or pap and gravy. He drinks rooibos tea/ chamomile rooibos tea. (He is not refusing milk because he is full, he just doesn' t want it anymore he just spit it out).

He' s lactose intolerant I' ve tried S26-LF and infacare they made him constipated and worse. He is on Isomil since 5 months no problmes with it.

1. Too much water is it bad for him ?
2. Which formula can I change to ? Or can i try a normal formula and see if his still lactose intolerant ?
3.Is there any supplement I can give to replace the milk ?

At 10 months your baby still needs milk as a very important part of his nutrition. Your baby no longer seems to like his soya formula. You could try a regular milk formula and see if he is still lactose intolerant. A good one to try would be NAN Pelargon. There are no supplements that can replace milk at your baby's age.
