any one have a lactose intolerant toddler? How was it finally diagnosed? I have a 20 month old that has been having very soft almost diarrhea poop since she was born. The ped kept saying it was normal but now that she is almost two they are considering lactose as the culprit. She is going to be on soy today and all weekend to see if we can't get a solid poop out of her.

If you feed her yogurt daily, it will REALLY help. And it's SUPER healthy for kids. I know it seems weird, because yogurt is but the probiotics in yogurt help break down lactose better than any other food out there. My best friend Raffi was lactose intolerant for 20 years. He then went to massage school where a woman told him to take probiotice daily, or to eat a cup of ypgurt daily. He can now eat ice cream!!! No more lactose intolerance! ALTHOUGH, if he has not taken his probiotics for a while, the symptoms will return. Just a quick FYI.
here is a link if you want to read about it.
