Can a child develop lactose intolerance suddenly?
I ask because Nadir has been having on and off stomach pains for the past two days. Trying to piece it together, the pains started sometime after drinking milk. Tuesday night, he had milk and then woke up around 1:00 with pains and was up until 4:30. Yesterday he was fine until around 5:00 but that was sometime after he had had some milk. The pains last for a few hours but he was fine beginning 8:30 or so and he didn't drink anything until this morning when had some more milk and the pains started around 10:00. They lasted for a couple of hours and then when he was ready for a drink he had some juice. He was fine for the rest of the day until he had some hot chocolate. Pains started up again but this time I had some kids pepto on hand and he ate that and now he's fine. I'm not going to let him have any more milk and see what happens.
