pls help!!

I refer to mail below:
Ok, i will change his formula and take him off the diary, just want to make you aware that the restlesness is only at night, not during his naps in the day...should we still continue as you advised below.
Thanks so much!!

The flea bites could have caused the bites you mention. Another possible cause is the bedbugs. You have dealt with this problem correctly. Apply calamine lotion to the bite marks.
Your son' s ongoing restlessness and discomfort is of concern. He seems worse on the Lactogen whch raises the possibility that he has a lactose intolerance problem. Take him off the Lactogen and also off all other dairy products such as yoghurt. Try him on a soya formula such as Isomil2 and see if he improves.

It is unusual that your baby is only restless at night and not during the day.It would still be worthwhile trying him on a lactose free diet for at least 3 to 4 days to see if his night restlessness improves.Please let me know how your baby responds to the lactose free diet.
