  • It’s all about playing around with his diet by the sounds of it. Try eliminating a food you think could be causing it, see the results etc etc etc

  • There‚Äôs heaps of formula for lactose intolerances these days

  • It may be that it has traces and that’s maybe contributing to the problem but I dont actually know I’m just suggesting

  • Making sure you avoid all food with dairy products is about all you can do. Read food labels thouroughly

  • Really very interesting comments on this!

  • You should probably talk to a doctor about this to be absolutely certain what the problem is.

  • Just read the ingredients on the back of packaging, be carful of food containing milk powder

  • you must read the packaging and see what is in it. keep using the formula with whatever you make.

  • People will tell you that there is no such thing but there absolutely is.

  • I would have them reviewed by a pediatrician. I hope you were able to work things out.

  • It is a great thing that he loves his bananas and veges. I bet by now he has found many more foods he likes.

  • Hope you got the answers you need

  • Talk with a doctor or mid wife, they may help

  • I’d probably consult your doctor and see what information they can offer, or turn to google

  • Hope you were able to get the answers you needed
