Suggest Treatment For Milk Intolerance In A Child

Hello, my 6 month old son grunted and strained from birth, not constipated and had trouble breastfeeding. He was diagnosed with a milk intolerance at 4 1/2 months and put onto soya formula. Things did calm but when we have started weaning the problems are returning. Started with baby rice very small amounts although he is desperate to eat more and it was ok then 3 days ago we introduced carrot into the rice, again small amounts and although he loves it he is now grunting, straining, going red in the face, crying out all of a sudden and genereally very unsettled. Is it possible that he is intolerant of carrot?? Im concerned that we are going to face this whatever food we try and are back to square one, please help. Many thanks

Hello,

I do not think he is allergic to carrot. I feel there should be some milk or milk product which has come into contact with him in his food unknowingly. Please continue on rice based feeds till 1 year of age please.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
