Is commercial lactose-free milk harmful?

Can I also feed lactose-free long-life milk instead of bottled milk?


 

Hello!
Our twins, 27 weeks old, had until recently only discussed lactose-free bottle milk or special milk with the doctor because they could not tolerate the normal pre-milk. 4 weeks ago we introduced HA milk again, also a more special one, with very, very little lactose. Both of them already get complementary food and they like to eat quite well. But because both of them begin to wean off the Ha milk especially during the day (at night they drink up to 180 ml quite well), we and our doctor thought that they might not like HA milk because it was too bitter, etc. So we used the normal one Lactose-containing baby bottle milk, which they drank only a little from the beginning and reacted with severe gas and crying from the very first bottle. Like then - they then got the completely lactose-free again and they did not like to drink it there was no problem with that.
But they don't want to drink that too much anymore ... (it tastes really disgusting too - I've tried it).
Can I also give you normal lactose-free milk that is commercially available for everyone? -As a kind of bottle-fed food? You can now get fruit porridge in the morning, lunch and lactose-free porridge in the evening.
So far at night they have been drinking HA bottles of milk - I would then go so far. My question is whether I could give you the normal lactose-free food in every shop on the day when bottle-fed food is generally more difficult or whether it would be harmful ...? Both of them prefer to drink a lot of water during the day instead of the bottle .
I don't want to go wrong, but neither do I want you to have problems.

Thank you for your response

Answer:

Can I also feed lactose-free long-life milk instead of bottled milk?

Dear "cystus",
I am pleased that you are contacting us with this topic. I am happy to help.

In the first year, commercially available cow's milk or lactose-free long-life milk are simply not suitable as drinking milk. The high protein and mineral content leads to increased stress on the kidneys. If you are not breastfed, ready-to-use baby foods or special foods for special nutritional needs (recommended by the doctor) are the right choice.

Your twins are now in their 7th month. The milk requirement is 400-500 ml milk including milk porridge.
This means that your children eat a portion of 200-250 g of lactose-free milk porridge (made from lactose-free bottled milk and cereal flakes) in the evening, and another 200-250 ml of drinking milk is sufficient. This can be the tried and tested specialty milk or other ready-made baby food.

If I understand correctly, you have started switching to an HA diet. Her twins took it well, but didn't like the taste that much during the day.
Have you already tried the simple trick of rounding off the taste of HA food with a little fruit puree or vegetable puree? That usually works pretty well. You can do this with any baby milk if it does not want to be accepted in terms of taste.
Whereby experience shows that children can in principle get used to one taste. The food just has to be offered again and again with conviction and a positive attitude.

One more thing occurs to me: You write that the two of them drink a lot of water a day. Can't it be that the tummy is already so full as a result and that's why the milk is not so gladly accepted. I would go back significantly in the amount of water. It is quite possible that things will work better with the milk. This can also mean a few days of adjustment. But try this out.

Incidentally, HiPP also offers a special comfort food with a reduced lactose content. Due to the breakdown of protein, this food also tastes a bit bitter, but often less strong compared to HA starter foods. You can order the HiPP Comfort special food free of shipping costs to try out as a portion bag in the HiPP online shop (http://shop.hipp.de/ernaehrung-milchnahrungen-portionsaschen-r30482.html). Like all special foods, this should also be served in consultation with the pediatrician.

I send many sunny greetings!
