A lactose intolerance is the inability to digest the type of sugar found in milk called lactose.
It is different to having a dairy allergy, where the body mistakes a protein within a specific food as harmful and has an immune response to it.
Lactose intolerance is treated differently to that of a dairy allergy. You should look out for these signs to tell if your baby might have a lactose intolerance:
Noisy bowel sounds
Loose, watery stools (maybe green/yellow in colour)
You should seek medical help immediately if you feel your baby may have allergies or is lactose intolerant.
