*update* Lactose intolerance - reintroducing "normal" formula as a test?
I've always thought my little girl was Lactose intolerant since she was a teeny-tiny baby and after months of battles, finally at 28 weeks, the HV confirmed it, and the doctor took us seriously. After another battle, he prescribed us 4 weeks supply of Lactose free formula.
Now, the 4 weeks are up and my HV / the doctor want me to reintroduce lactose to her diet after 4+ weeks of being lactose free completely. The doctor says to just give a days worth of her normal formula (I was using Aptimal comfort which has 60% less lactose). The HV says to give something food wise such as soft cheese. Which obviously is very conflcting. I'm also wondering whether me giving her the "normal" formula will be enough lactose to trigger the intolerance, as her symptoms only got extreme when we started weaning and she had lots of lactose in her diet..
Just wondering whether anyone had any experiences? If so, what did you give as the "test"? How soon after would I expect any issues to appear? (It was explodapoop within 5mins of a bottle last time).
