I was giving Henry teething granules over a day or two and he reverted back to those awful nights screaming and inconsolable. I didn't know why until I read the packaging one day and realised they had lactose in them. Gosh did I feel rubbish. Sounds like its still a big problem for her so just keep avoiding it. Have you seen a dietician? We were told he will 'hopefully' have grown out of it by school age butto be prepared that at 1 the gp may ask us to try it and see what happens (NO CHANCE!)

When we reintroduced milk we did it slowly with a plan from the dietician.
What does she eat? First step is to give biscuits, foods that contain milk, that sort of thing. Baked food I guess. Next step is cooked milk and it has to be baked in the oven for half an hour, so lasagne, fish pie etc, but no cheese! Next is cooked cheese, again baked in the oven, so lasagne with the cheese etc. then melted cheese, then raw cheese, then milk.
We have got as far as melted cheese. Then N's eczema gets worse. He drinks soya milk now he's not on Neocate. Gave him a bottle of real milk once and his skin went bad so I won't be doing that again!

We've been given a plan for very slow introduction, first with things such as biscuit or cake, where the milk products are highly processed. I've disregarded it all tbh at the moment as even being on Lactose free products and soya were struggling, so we're battling over whether it's cpma or lactose. I do intend to regularly try and reintroduce, because I'd much rather it wasn't an issue but it definitely is here too and those symptoms sound familiar.

Sounds like a reaction. We had to avoid anything milk related until she was one. We then tried with it in cooked things when she reached that age and it wasn't successful. We've recently tried again, as the dietician advised that she'd have more of a chance of outgrowing if we started to gradually build up a tolerance if the symptoms weren't causing pain etc. and after a few dodgy nappies things are beginning to improve and she managed half a small yoghurt on the weekend. I'm hopeful that the end js now in sight. We had a phone appointment giving advice on reintroducing. They're phoning me back when she's 18 months to see how we're getting on. There was a reintroduction process we had to follow, so make sure you ask for advice before you do introduce.
