Q.

Milk intolerance

Good day Prof.

With reference to my previous question on milk intake. My 15 months old baby has been on Isomil since starting bottle feeding because he was diagnised with milk intolerence, I would like to know does a baby out grow the intolerance or it doesn''t end?

Would it be safe to give him Weetbix or Nutrific for lunch &  must I use soy milk or full cream cow milk? He is on full diet, he eat almost everything we eat.

Thanks.

I do not appear to have come across your previous question yet.Usually children with definite lactose intolerance do not grow out of this problem. It often lasts a lifetime.It would be ebst for you to continue usuing soya milk on his cereals. there is no problem with your baby eating Weetbix now.
