I found out (well, figured out) my soon to be 1 year old was lactose intolerant around five months. I had tried breast feeding but simply couldn't produce enough milk and switched him to formula around three months, both of which made him writhe in agony after every feeding, even though the Dr. said it was just colic. Once we switched him to soy formula, he no longer had any signs of "colic". He can eat cheese and yogurt (as well as other milk products) with no problems but milk formula will cause him to be very sick: constipated, cramped, and vomiting. My question is: you're supposed to switch them to whole milk at 1 year, but since milk makes him sick, do I use soy milk? Our next Dr. appt isn't until a week or so after his birthday and I'd like to get him adjusted to the new liquid before we see him. Help!
