Lactose Intolerance or Maybe Milk Allergy in 3 Year Old?

I'm trying to figure out if my 3 year old son has lactose intolerance or maybe a milk allergy and am wondering if anyone else out there has had a child with these signs/symptoms and if and how you figured out what it was.

Soon to Be 3 Year Old Doesn't Sleep Thru the Night!!

She attends a full day pre-school program 5 days a week (7:00am-3:15pm), she is a fairly good eater (as of the last 2 months), she is not given a lot of junk (one popsical after school, that's it-we won't even let her have yogurt any more because the sugar is so high & we don't know if that contributes to the lack of sleep). We do allow her some "educational" tv, but nothing...
