My 2 month old daughter had abdominal surgery when she was a day old and we started to explore the possibilty of secondary lactose intolerance due to the surgery that removed 20 inches of her bowel. Well crushing up a 1/4 of a Lactaid pill and adding it to a little water works wonders! She is no longer gassy and isn't up all night with gas. Its totally amazing the difference.
Is there a better way to get the lactase enzyme to our little breastfed baby? Our pediatrician doesn't want to stop breastfeeding her after 2 weeks in the NICU at birth and a week in the hospital for RSV -last week, we believe its best for her to continue to breastfeed to stay healthy.
Thanks so much for any advice!
