Lactose Intolerance in Toddlers

So my daughter is two and a half now. Shes always had digestive problems in the sense that since infancy everytime she pooped it would go up her back and down her legs. Well this has followed through year one and year two now. I have to constantly bring extra clothes everywhere just in case theres an accident. I guess I just thought I was just unlucky and never brought it up to the doctor. Well she's potty trained now and only wears dipers over night. And recently I've noticed that even if she poops during the day she still explodes out of her diaper overnight. I'm talking about last week every single day I had to strip her linens and throughout her underwear and pjs because they were so covered in poop I had to peel them off of her. She is constantly farting and most of the time a chunck of poop comes out with it and well there goes her little socks too. I've noticed it gets worse if shes had a big cup of milk right before bed or for instance, yesterday i gave her a cup of chocolate milk and about half way through she stopped, gave me her cup, and ran to her room. After a few minutes my husband checked on her and what would you know, pooped panties and poop smeared on the floor. I just don't know what to do. I've decided to strip her of dairy despite the fact that her favorite snack is cheese slices. I'm giving her almond milk now. But don't know how to supplement breakfast foods. Anyone else have this problem with their child? Any advice?

What does she normally eat for breakfast? Have you talked with her pedi about it?

If you suspect and intolerance, go to a specialist. Food sensitivities are way to complicated for a general doctor or mother to officially diagnose. Good luck!
