I am very concerned about your daughter. You do not mention her weight. You also say that she is not talking and won't eat solids. Your daughter must be seen by a paediatrician and a proper diagnosis of her condition must be made. If she is indeed lactose intolerant still then she must be under the care of a dietician as well.Please let me know what the paediatrician tells you once your daughter has been seen.
