Morning, my child is 1.9 months old … If I use some milk, ***, he chaps frequently, can reach 4-5 times, sometimes only a little … Is that a sign of lactose allergy or just does not match the milk. what, continue or replace milk, ever replace milk with ch *****. Still often the chapter. Thanks
Hello Ipah19, Thank you for the question.
The frequency of defecating infants who consume formula milk generally has more than the baby consuming milk. However, there is no normal limit on the frequency of BABs because the frequency of BABs between one baby and another can vary. Another thing to note is the color of stool, stool odor, and other symptoms experienced by your baby. If the color and smell of stool is still normal and the baby also does not experience other symptoms such as vomiting, flatulence, fussiness, frequent winds, aruam skin, or weight that is difficult to gain, then there is nothing you need to worry about right now.
Lactose intolerance is a condition in which the body cannot digest lactose which is usually contained in milk and its processed products. This condition is different from cow's milk allergy. Some symptoms of lactose intolerance are: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, flatulence, abdominal pain, and frequent bowel movements.
If you are still worried, you can consult with your pediatrician's doctor further because to check whether your child has lactose intolerance, a doctor's examination is needed. The doctor will ask further questions about the symptoms your child is experiencing and information related to these symptoms and then examine your child. The doctor may also recommend further tests such as stool examination, stool acidity tests, and others. Further treatment will be determined by the doctor after knowing the condition of your child. For now, you can pay attention to your child's symptoms and conditions while continuing to give milk to your child. Also make sure you maintain food intake for your child so that his nutritional needs are maintained.
Hopefully this information helps you.
