LACTOSE INTOLERANCE AND LACTOSE FREE MILK










When i gave birth to our first child,i am very excited to feed him my very own milk because i know for a fact that breastfeeding is far much more important than bottle feeding.Breast milk is best for babies as they said.As i start to feed him with my milk,my baby had a hard time sucking because my other nipple is retroverted so he had a hard time sucking it.We tried gentle vacuum suction but yet,its not working.Poor baby,he keeps on trying to suck my milk.As days go by,we pity our baby for he still want more and yet,just a small amount of milk coming out,so we went to our pedia and ask her other solution,then she said,we cant do anything but to use pump.Getting my milk through pump is so hard and painful but because i love our baby dearly,pain doesn't count to me anymore.All i want was to give him my very own milk.It went for 3 weeks feeding him naturally,but as the days go by,my milk is slowly going down.I tried so many supplement but it just stop.We went to our Pedia and ask her about it and she said by now, well give him formula milk.She told us to use these Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Infant Formula.But after a week of using it,one afternoon my baby kept on crying as if he felt something so painful.He has no fever,no signs of allergy's.What are we gonna do to make him stop crying?My sister ask me if my baby is on colic and kept on crying?Then i said yes,she said my baby might be Lactose Intolerance.I barely know what is lactose intolerance,so we went to our Pedia again and then here's what she said.
Lactose is the inability to digest lactose,a sugar found in milk and formula milk.It will occur when the baby does not have enough Lactase,an enzyme needed to digest lactose usually in cow's milk formula.The symptoms usually occurs 30 to 60 minutes after drinking milk..
Usually the behavior of Lactose intolerance are as follows :
  • the baby will cry inconsolably
  • they twist their body to ease the pain or discomfort
  • trouble in sleeping

With our Pediatrician's diagnosis,we were adviced to let our baby be fed with milk that are LACTOSE - FREE since he's Lactose intolerant.Soya milk and goats milk are also good to baby's who are Lactose intolerance.From then till now,my baby is doing good.He's going 5 months now,very healthy and bubbly. :-)

  13. Hi, thanks for dropping by my site. Baliktad naman tayo, I have so much milk nalulunod na yung baby ko. I had to use pump to lessen the milk because I'm always dripping, no matter how much of those breast pads I use. Both my children enjoyed my milk until such time. The only time they needed feeding bottles was when we had to go to church or at a gathering. Kahiya kase. BTW, I already linked you na.

  17. First time parents may seem to get weary especially if they have a colic baby but there are some ways to learn in order get adjusted with crying babies. Such as proper way of feeding the baby, the right position of the pillow, kind of mattress used and others.
