My dd is 1 month tomorrow and keeps puking up everything she eats. After she eats she coughs horribly. She also has bad gassy problems. I took her to her doctor today to make sure she wasnt dehydrated and the doctor said that she may be lactose intolerant and wrote me a perscribtion to switch her WIC formula to soy based. I cant change out her formula until tuesday and have no money to buy soy formula at the moment, so we are sticking with it. Any suggestions from moms who have/had intolerant babies? can it go away? I'm new to this so please inform me of all you know. Thank you!!Answer Question

It sounds as though baby is the one getting wiped out. Can you give relactating a try .... at least for your precious one so that she doesn't have to be in that kind of pain? Or perhaps look into some type of donor milk?

If your child is truly lactose intolerant, you wouldn't be able to breastfed anyway. Breast milk is extremely high in lactose. Most children don't develop a lactose intolerance until 2 or 3 for that reason. There are formulas that aren't soy-based that are meant for children that are lactose intolerant. They add the enzyme into in that helps the body process lactose.
Small babies like yours are very rarely lactose intolerent, but she could have a milk allergy. Research both thoroughly.
