E will be one in January, and the doctors said she should be weaned off the lactose free formula she is currently having after her next batch of 10 tins are up (could be a while).
I've given (OK she's been accidentally given) dairy this weekend and on Wednesday is still suffering with very runny nappies. So definitely not yet grown out of it.
So, I've not really been given any advice as to what comes next? E has had soya and tolerates it OK but say she has soya cheese and yogurt in the same day/meal.. tends to have the same LI symptoms. So I'm not sure what the alternative is?
Has anyone else been through this? Weve a HV review on 18th but I'm expecting the same poor advice!

Could you get a referral to a see a dietician? The HV shouldn't just dismiss you because your E is not "most babies" and hasn't grown out of yet. A lady on a local FB group near me was saying that her daughter was 18 months and hasn't grown out of her LI yet. I really hope you get some joy at your review.

O has a little friend, L, who has at 21 months has not outgrown it either...they were referred to a dietician at the hospital for more help (her allergy was severe and she'd vomit and come out in a rash). In recemt minths ahe has been able to tolerate a v small amount (ie. foods that contain traces). I'll ask her if she has any tips for you xx

How can they say she should be weaned off it I they dot even know If she's outgrown the intolerance? Surely try should be asking you to try trace amounts and check for reactions. This is what my dietician told us. I think you're gonna have to push to see one lovely. Te drs and Hv are not the people for this x

Thanks ladies. I've phoned the doctor back and told him I'd like to speak to a dietician or at least someone who knows what they are doing. He wants to discuss further and I've an appointment on 19th. Thankfully I am able to buy more of her formula if I needed to so no huge issue.
