    I have always used a lactose free like similac sensitive, or a store brand that is a lactose free. All my kids have had sensitive tummies and this seems to help a ton. You may have something similar there.

    Do you mean which formulas, or which foods? If it's lactose intolerance rather than cow's milk protein intolerance, there are lactose free formulas available. If it's food then you can get lactose free versions of milk, cheese, yogurt etc. I think you'd have to check labels for other stuff, and avoid anything that has milk in.

    Hi hun, my son was lactose intolerant but fortunately he grew out of it.

    Asda etc have very good lacto free ranges. Remember it's different from dairy allergy, just make sure you read labels.

    It's ok once you find the products. If you need anything give me a shout

    I'm lactose intolerance hun LactoFree is really good!

    Thats discusting they wont refer you to a dietician even though she has a proven intolerance! I'd demand to see a different GP and ask for a referral xx

    that's shocking, i would keep fighting to see a dietician.

    i couldn't even get them to test LO, I had to use trial and error myself - luckily she isn't (think my breast milk was just too sugary :S)

    You can refer yourself to the dietician you dont need the midwife or HV to do it for you. Just phone the dietician at your local hospital i did and it was the best thing i ever did. I now get nutramigen baby milk on prescription. xxx
