Q.

8 month old baby lactose intollerant!

My son is 8 months old and started crying 3 days after birth.A few visits at the pediatrician,he was ok again ,but we have to give him Lactose free milk, wich is very expensive,and he also has a reflux problem,i hear and see all the time how he struggle to swallow his milk that comes up all the time
I want to know when i can start giving him food or milk with lactose in.He still gets cramps at nigths and sleeps very bad.But i must say in other areas he is very well,no complains.I know his teeth also makes him fussy,but the range of food i can give him is very limited.
Can someone give me advise.Food suggestions and so on.

You must not give him a cows milk formula or any milk product.You can use a soya milk formula such as Isomil or Infacare.
