As a new parent, there's nothing worse than realizing something is wrong with your baby. And because they don't have the ability to talk just yet, you can't pinpoint what's exactly wrong with them. When my sister first had my niece, she experienced situations like this and would become nervous as a result. Though most babies have moments where they will cry due to hunger alone, there are other instances where this is different, and being lactose intolerant is one of them. Being knowledgeable of the signs your baby is lactose intolerant will help you narrow down the possible causes of an irritated or sick baby.
According to the Baby Center, it is very rare that a baby is born with lactose intolerance. However, that doesn't mean that they can't develop it once they are born. Though there isn't anything that can be done to prevent a lactose intolerance for your baby, there are things that you can do to help them if they are suffering. Both monitoring how they react to small does of dairy products and reading labels before distributing food to them, are just small steps that can help.
Not sure if your baby suffers from lactose intolerance? These seven signs can help you figure it out.
