4 month old babies do not get lactose intolerance, to my knowledge. They can be MILK ALLERGIC, which is something different entirely. All milk has lactose, YOUR milk has lactose but the protein in human milk is different from cows milk. The cow's milk protein is what they are reacting to.
My 5 month old is not milk allergic, but is sensitive to cows milk and it gives her bad reflux so I avoid it, but I noticed this when she was weeks old.
Four months is a very fussy age and if she was fine with what you were doing before it probably is not a dairy sensitivity/allergy. That's what I'd think anyway. If you want to be sure, cut dairy out of your diet for at least 2 weeks and see if it makes a difference. This means cutting out the "hidden" dairy as well, whey and casein (most commonly found as sodium caseinate or calcium caseinate)- these are the cow's milk proteins.
