    i would think drinking 2 liters of anything at once would be enough to make you wanna hurl.

    I bought some soy yogurt tonight at Romes. They were $4.99 for 6 little cups, so I hope he likes them. A friend gave me four chewable lactose pills to try with him. I am going to start keeping a food diary for him. He has been having bad diapers even when I'm sure he's not having milk, so I'm not sure if he's starting to react to cheeses now, or if he's got some other food allergies. Poor little guy just FREAKS for a poopy diaper change, because his bum is raw from whatever is going on. I hope he potty trains soon. I think that will help.

    depending on the amount of lactose in a serving you need up to 6 lactose pills to stop you from getting a reaction.

    I know with me personally, when I was younger, to drink a glass of milk without getting upset i would only need 4, but if i were to have a glass of chocolate milk i would need 6.. some reason chocolate milk drove my stomach crazy... So three pills might not help him if you only give him say one with a thing of yogurt... He might need 3 or 4 for that serving of yogurt.

    And personally the pills taste like chewing chalk, which is why my mother went with the lactose drops. No taste and they go right into the food, or milk. I started my son on a soy diet and his doctor said that i need to make sure that he gets his vitamin D and his protien from other sources during the day because soy milk does not have that in it. He gets a daily liquid vitamin. And also soy does have alot of sugar in it. I would recomend you get a referal to a nutrition specialist. They help alot and take the guess work out of everything. They are covered by ohip. I think the food diary is a good idea. That why you have a record of what is causing him to become sick. And if you do go see a nutrition specialist, they will have something visual to go on. Hope you little guy gets better. Also for diaper rash, at romes, in the organic food section, they have a baby section with this amazing natural diaper rash cream. My son got a horriable diaper rash when he was teething and penatin was not even helping. A friend recomended it to me and i tried it and it worked amazing. I use it now at every diaper change and he has not had a diaper rash since then.

    Do you think I would need multiple lactose pills for a 25 pound child? I just assumed one would do. Hmmm...I'll have to keep playing with it. The only bummer about that *no pun intended* is his poor little bum.

    When my daughter was that small she needed a half to a whole pill, depending on what she ate and how much. One should work. Try it and see. Everyone is different, and it depends on the degree of lactose intolerance. (It does sound like your little guy's is pretty severe though).

    I use soy milk because it's $3.29 for a 2L and RJ's often sells it for $.99/2L. A 2L of the lactose free milk runs about $5.69 unless it's on sale. I bought some Lactaid two weeks ago at No Frills for $.99/1L. He will just grow up on soy milk, so it won't be gross to him. He loves it, and asks for it by name.

    I'm thinking that what I thought was turning out to be some type of food allergy may just be the flu. My five year old threw up in the Zellers parking lot on Thursday night, and all day yesterday and today Joey (my lactose intolerant kid) had nasty acid poop and burned his bum bad. Tonight he had a fever with it, so I am hoping it's just from the flu, and not a sign of other food issues.

    Not to scare you, but if it does not clear up in a few days i would call a doc. My son was 3 when he first started having digestive issues, and i tried on my own to help see what he could and could not handle and what foods to put him on and such, well he just stopped eating and drinking because it was hurting him so much. He was literally starving himself, i took him to the hospital and he ended up being admitted for a week while they did tests and such. They didnt want to give him an iv, so they had every nurse in the emerg try to give him something different to drink... he would not take anything. I had my mom,. my aunts, my sisters, come in try to get him to drink and he would refuse, then he got so bad they had no choise but to put an iv in him. He still has issues on and off and was hospitalized twice more for digestive issues. Some kids just have really sensitive stomachs.

    Hmmm...I will have to watch him carefully. It doesn't seem to hurt him on the inside though. It just seems that when he has dairy products other than cheese, it and the other contents of his stomach rush through his body, and come out the other end very acidic. There is often whole undigested particles in his diaper if he gets his hands on milk. It only hurts him on the outside, when it burns his diaper area.
