Just started raw milk

I have just started drinking raw milk. I have been researching for awhile. I have a daughter that is lactose intolerant. She loves milk but not what it does to her. Getting my family to take the plunge has been hard. My daughter is afraid. My husband is just kind of freaked out by it being raw, but slowly I am winning them over. To my story... I have been drinking it for about 3 weeks now. I had run out of it and the farm where I get it is a 35 minute drive so in a pinch I bought some store milk. After drinking a glass of it I experienced what my daughter has always had. I got bloated, stomach cramps and very gassy feeling. I didn't drink any more. Two days later I went and got my raw milk, drank it and no problems. Now I have never been lactose intolerant, but after my body getting use to the raw and then switching to the pasteurized my body let me know that wasn't good for me. My husband has allergies and asthma, I have told him how this will make it better. Tonight I have just a small amount in the fridge left. My husband said we need to get more milk can you go to the farm tomorrow? Yea! He is finally getting it! By the way, when we first started raising chickens he was the same way about the eggs. Now he wouldn't touch a store egg with a ten foot pole :)
