Infant diagnosed with inflamed tummy, on lactose free formula, still has green mucus stools, vomiting. Normal?

Hi there, My 14 weeks old baby was diagnosed with inflamed tummy. Therefore a lactose free formula was prescribed. I started him on that two days ago but the symptoms are still there. He still has a green mucusy poo and vomiting . Is that normal? How long does it take for his tummy to recover with the lighter formula? Thank you and kind regards, Lidia McNamara

good evening, ur baby is having lactose intolerance which is only a transient phenomenon. dont be worried. get a stool test to rule out infections as well because of the green colored stools. if the child is active , playful accepting feeds well, then do not be bothered. watch for dehydration- dry eyes, dry mouth , low urine out put. watch for blood in stools. watch for diaper rashes, in any of these situations, kindly review with ur doc.
