Wasn't sure whether to post under health or allergies so here it is ...

DD just 3, is on a special high energy milk to help her put on weight. Lately she's been feeling sick after and we're assuming it's just too rich for her. So about a week ago I've started diluting it with normal full fat milk (1/2 & 1/2) which she actually liked. Also did this in preparation for nursery where she'll be giving milk in the break.

Anyhow... the last couple of days she's had a bit of a tummy ache and you wouldn't believe her nappies. without getting too graphic... yuckie!

Could this be a lactose intolerance or just the change over to a different fat content or just a bug? No temperature or the like. She seems to be fine with chees (consumed by the handfull and yoghurt)

I've got a doctor's appointment with her next week anyhow but though I'll pose the question to our knowledgable MNers

Could be just that she's having too much fat and it's all coming out the other end... there was a much-hyped product for helping people lose weight that cause them to excrete all the fat and was withdrawn because it had much the same effect. Yuck.

well that would be a problem as she needs 'fattening up'. She's a light weight 12kg at 3 years

Sorry don't know the answer, but my 3 y old dd is under 13kg.

good to know I don't have the only 'feather weight' thanks

Different brands of milk can be tolerated differently. I can't drink cheap milk (fat content irrelevant)but can have the ultra filtered stuff for children.

my ds is lactose and protiene intolerent and his symptoms were obvious from birth but lactose intolerence can occur for a short period of time after a stomach upset best to talk to g.p or dietician ds symptoms were cronic stomach ache after bottle, diorreah, vomiting, iratabillity, wheezyness.

How is your child now? My husband was milk intolerant for a time but after many months - and several setbacks - he now seems to be able to tolerate small amounts of milk. "Temporary" milk intolerance can last quite a long time!
