Hi ,

I am looking for some advice as to how best to handle this!
Following an appt with the Dietician yesterday, she believes that my 19 month old's constant bloated tummy, wind and constipation is down to an intolerance to cows milk...(It all makes sense now as I had to cut out all dairy and soya products when pregnant and kicking myself that I didnt put 2 + 2 together before now!)

Recently he has become so fussy that all he will mainly eat is cheese and yoghurt and drink his milk at bedtime. He does pick at vegetables and LOVES his fruit which is great but has even gone off bread recently!
I have tried so many different recipes and he just picks at a few pieces and then pushes it away, although of course eats EVERYTHING at nursery the little monkey angry
I understand now that the more dairy we have been giving him, the worse his little tummy is probably feeling but just don't how to try to turn this all around! I know he will not starve himself but I want to try to make this transition as easy on him as possible.

I am trying him on soya products but am weary of them due to my intolerance so would rather offer almond milk etc...

Please please please can someone offer some advice/ support!!

Much appreciated, Sam

Try the Lactofree products that you can buy in any supermarket.

Thanks, unfortunately I have been advised to cut out dairy completely including the lactofree products! Its a shame as there is such a good variety of those out there!
