Is cow milk better than formula milk for a lactose intolerant infant?
I tried the same yesterday. fed him some sooji pancake before putting him to sleep but he couldnt sleep for more than an hour and started asking for feed again. I kept on breastfeeding but after more than 2 hrs of breastfeeding and being exhaused, when baby was still not ready to let me go, I had to give him 150ml of top feed.. that is when he slept for some time. that is may be because the breast feed supply is considerably low now. In the early morning again, he started asking for feed and when I did not feed him, he got up and cried. I had to give him milk again. though I have reduced the quantity of a milk feed by 50 percent.
what to do in such scenario? is it better to give cows milk than formula feed? i am currently using nan pro.
Start lactose free formula like zerolac
Can understand your concerns.
During infection a child may develop lactose intolerance but this is transietary and not permanent.
Once the infection gets corrected, the lactose intolerance disappears gradually.
There are various lactose free formula available in market like zerolac, nusobee.
I suggest you to start zerolac milk formula for 2 weeks and then gradually shift to cows or other formula milk.
This is a very common thing in children, I suggest you to start zerolac for some time and then after 2 or 3 weeks return to earlier schedule.
I hope this will help you.
Yes cow milk can be started after infection gets corrected
Yes, after infection is corrected cow milk can be started.
It is usually seen that lactose intolerance persists upto 2 weeks after infection is corrected.
So, you can start cow milk after 2 weeks.
