My baby is 14wks old, first 4-6wks i had her on cow and gate she wud cry a lot and always had a runny stool, so i changed her to aptimal got her tested for lactose intolerance which i was informed she has a lite form and wil grow out of it, is this possible?? From reading this article i think she might have food allergy, she is always caught up and her nappies are always a loose stool. I have noticed a big diff from changing her feed but is that enough??

breast milk
by: Tracy

Hi Margaret

Many babies who are fed anything other than "breast milk" have tummy issues early on. Their tummies struggle to digest cow milk and formula.

My first child was the same, he had terrible colic (I could unfortunately not breastfeed my first baby) until we found a formula that did not upset his tummy. So, if you really cant find a formula that works for her, you can maybe find out about donor breast milk...which is always the best option.
