Q.

Sudden tummy change

My 8 month old baby had problems with her tummy until we were told that she was lactose intolerant and we started using Infasoy which has been wonderful. Although she hate drinking formula she does have her milk in almost every solid she takes and then I breast feed her throughout the night since i am working. The problem is now that for the past two days, about 15-20 minutes after a night feed, she has a very pale almost white very watery poo. This only happens when I breast feed her. Does this mean that she is now also intolerant to my milk. I do not want to wean her yet as she does not like the bottle. Please help.

Yes, if she is lactose intolerant she will also have symptoms if she has breast milk. It seems that you will be forced to use only the Infasoy if her stools are very watery.
