Yes, it is possible that your baby son has developed a problem with lactose intolerance and has diarrhoea as a result of starting him on the Nido formula. This formula is milk based.Stop the Nido and try him on a soya formula. Try Isomil2 and see if he can tolerate this kind of formula.He will need to stay on this formula to the age of 15 months if he can tolerate it well and then change to the regular soya milk in cartons.

Send your baby as soon as possible to the nearest hospital or clinic, he might get dehydrated and he needs fluids in his body. At the hosp they will determinr what the problem is.
