My daughter is 3.5 years old. Last week, she came down with a stomach bug. The first thing she threw up was milk. It was a 24 hour bug, and by the next day, she wasn't throwing up any more, and her diarrhea was going away. However, after she had milk again, she started having diarrhea again. Every time after she's had milk, she's gotten diarrhea since she got sick.
My question is this: is this her becoming lactose intolerant (her daddy is lactose intolerant after having been raised on goat milk) or could it still just be her intestinal flora still recovering from being sick? I really don't want her to be lactose intolerant. She loves milk. I want to get her into the pediatrician soon, but we'll have to wait a week or two for an appointment. Any input would be appreciated!
