The most important step toward helping your child is to remove all cow’s milk products from their diet. If you’re breastfeeding your baby, you’ll need to stop eating dairy products, too.

 

Cow’s milk can be replaced with a special formula — your doctor will recommend the type that is best for your child. Don’t switch to goat’s milk or since it is not a good alternative for most infants.

 

You’ll need to read food labels closely to make sure the foods don’t contain cow’s milk. Between 6 months and one year, your doctor may recommend that you start slowly reintroducing cow’s milk products to your child’s diet. Be sure to watch closely for CMPI symptoms and stop feeding milk products if they appear.
