Q.

Constant My baby is 14 months old and ha

My baby is 14 months old and has constant Diarrhea (now for 4 months. I've taken him to the doctor twice. The first time they tested his stool, it was clear and the second time (2 months later) they found an e-coli virus which was treated with antibiotics.
However, the Diarrhea continues. Could it be that he is allergic to milk-based products? I'm asking this because when I give him yoghurt to eat, he comits, but he does not vomit when drinking a milk based formula, but does have this constant Diarrhea.

Your baby almost certainly has lactose intolerance.Do not give him any milk or dairy products. Use soya milk in cartons in place of cow's milk.
