1.6 Years Old Baby?

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm beforehand whether the pediatrician who examined your child indeed states that your child has diarrhea due to lactose intolerance so you have to give lactose-free milk to your child?
Diarrhea in children is most often caused by rotavirus infection in the gastrointestinal tract. Rotavirus infection will actually heal by itself in 3-7 days without requiring any treatment. Children usually only need supportive therapy in the form of giving more fluid and also symptomatic therapy such as fever medication if the child has a fever or vomiting medication if the child experiences excessive vomiting. Children are also advised to get 20 mg zinc supplementation (1 tablet) per day for 10 days. Children who get formula milk before diarrhea can continue to consume formula milk as usual (no need to replace formula milk unless there are certain indications determined by the child's doctor).
If your child has indeed been diagnosed by a doctor his child has diarrhea due to lactose intolerance, then your pediatrician who will later recommend what milk can be given to children. Lactose-free milk only functions to treat diarrhea caused by lactose intolerance. If your child's diarrhea is not caused by lactose intolerance, then lactose-free milk (such as SGM LLM) or other lactose-free milk is not necessary.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
