I was told by someone the reason he was not breastfed as a baby was because he was lactose intolerant and that breastmilk had it in it ...so she formula fed ....

I would think it would be more from the mother's diet than just all breastmilk. If the mother's diet was not lactose free, it could cause problems.

Re: Breastmilk and lactose intolerant babies

I have a lactose intolarent dd who is now 18 months. I breastfed her till she was almost 1 BUT I had to cut all lactose from MY diet. It was hard but do-able. Once I cut my lactose out she was fine (mind you it can take several weeks for the lactose to clean out of your system completely). It's totally wrong whoever told you that you can't bf at all. CAN but it takes work on your part. GL!

What kind of formula was used? I've never really used it, so I don't know if formula comes lactose free.

Re: Breastmilk and lactose intolerant babies

I dont know what was use for him back in 1983 .


but some of the ones avablib today are :


Enfamil Prosobee Lipil Formula Lactose Free, with Iron
Baby's Only Lactose Free Formula


Lactose Free Formula
Definition:
Many people misunderstand the differences between lactose free formula, cow's milk based formula, and soy formula. While lactose free formula and soy formula both do not contain lactose, lactose free formula is created from cow's milk and thus contains cow's milk protein.

Lactose free formulas are refined to remove the lactose and replace it with a different carbohydrate. Because it contains cow's milk protein, lactose free formulas do not work for babies who are truly allergic to milk. Rather, it can be an alternative for babies who are lactose intolerant.

Lactose intolerance, however, is more commmon in children after they have turned age 2, so lactose free formula is not commonly used.

Re: Breastmilk and lactose intolerant babies

It is very very very rare for a baby to be lactose intolerant. It was most likely a cows milk protien intolerance related to the dairy in the moms diet. Lactose is the natural sugar in our breastmilk. It is the perfect sugar for our growth and development because it is glucose our bodies can readily use it and it does not affect our livers and store as fat like the other sugars like fructose and sucrose. Both of which are horrible for us.

Yeah this... it's more likely a milk protein allergy/intolerance than lactose but ya never know.

My DS5 had a milk protein allergy and grew out of it around 2-3yrs. I had to cut a LOT of stuff out of my diet and eventually my supply disappeared and wasn't enough to sustain him so we switched to soy.

the "doctors" told her that he was .....if you want to know In my honest opinion ... i think it was his mother being lazy and saying that's was her way of justifying / " reasoning" to why she didnt nurse him
