Cow’s milk protein allergy

Caution milk

Do you think your baby might have an allergy to milk? Not sure what to look for and how it is managed?

Last week a few dietitians came together with the Anaphylaxis Campaign and some parent support groups to tweet about cow’s milk allergy. 2-4% of children in the UK are affected by it and many of them are misdiagnosed or mismanaged for many months. Some good information was shared in the hour long twitter chat including tips for weaning and where to go for support. The twitter chat is well worth a read if you want to know more.
