formula intolerance

Formula intolerance is a vague term applied when we can't figure out what's wrong with the baby but suspect the problem is caused by the type of formula. Among the causes of so-called formula intolerance are gas and air swallowing, milk allergy, lactose intolerance, and feeding problems such as too tight nipples or incorrect feeding position.

Switching to soy formula to cure formula intolerance is often done but gastroenterologists who suspect milk allergy generally switch to Alimentum® or Nutramigen®, which are truly hypoallergenic. Lactose intolerance, the inability to digest lactose must be rare at best. What kind of a world would it be if a baby were born unable to digest the sugar in mother's breast milk?
