Thanks for your query. Lactose intolerance
can produce foul smelling diarrhea
. But how does she behave after stopping dairy products. Foul smelling diarrhea should stop after stopping dairy products. Then it supports a diagnosis of lactose intolerance. You can discuss with your doctor about doing a stool test
for reducing substances to confirm a diagnosis. Just check her weight. If its around 10-11 kg then she is doing fine. Need not bother about her eating pattern as long as she is gaining weight satisfactorily.
