Dd is prescribed lactose free milk and I want to check it is nutricious enough for her age, also need some advice on introducing dairy/lactose products to her diet. Any advice on where to look please ?

You should have a dietician helping you with this. Have you not been referred?

No, we have not been referred, just muddled along, Bf for 11 months whilst taking no dairy or lactose myself, then GP prescribed the lactose free milk.

I use LactoFree milk and as far as I am aware it is just as nutritious as regular cows milk.

Sainsbury's do a Free From selection which is quite good.

BarbieGirl, Is that a formula type milk ? We dont have a Sainsbury's near us.

bensmum no it is not a formula milk. How old is your DS?

You can also buy it at Tesco and all the big supermarkets. It is where all the milk's are - near the Soya milk.

Dd is 1yr in just over a week, hence my concern that the formula she is being prescribed might not be enough for her now.
