My DS had this as a baby and my sister is a dietician so I know a fair bit about this!

Cutting out dairy is the only thing you can do really, I can't remember how long it was until my son became calmer I think a few days?

How extreme you take the no dairy thing I'm not sure...(baked milk e.g. Biscuits etc can sometimes be avoided).

You've probably been on it but this website has good info

Hope your little one is feeling better soon and you can get to see a dietician quickly.

Good luck!

Try to find out whether it's the lactose, or the lactase he's allergic to. I have sensitivity to lactose and fortunately, these days dairy products with the lactose removed are available. I believe it's more onerous if lactase is the allergen. As you can tell, I'm no expert! I'm sure others will be along soon who know more about it. Best of luck.
