  • if he was on lactose free formula it may be that he is lactose intolerant, my dd took the lactose free formula but does fine on regular milk now... idk ask his doctor

  • how old is he?

    my girls were lactose sensitive. if they had it as babies they would get really crampy and icky tummies. I used regular formula when we were on formula - but weaned them very very slowly onto milk. 1oz milk 7 oz formula for a week, then 2oz-6oz and so on.
