When an infant turns out to be allergic, it is often recommended for a breastfeeding woman to switch to a ready-made formula. In practice, this often turns out to be insufficient and the effects of this change rarely outweigh the costs of depriving a baby of the best possible food.

Therefore, before you decide on any step, it is worth thinking through the matter. In the case of a child's allergy, there are often no simple scenarios, and it can sensitize everything - not necessarily nutritional ingredients.

Allergy and breastfeeding

Allergies are a plague today, a civilization disease. It is estimated that every second person may have this type of problem at a given stage of life. The youngest children may be irritated by milk and dairy products made from cow's milk. However, you should be aware that sensitivity to breast milk components is not as common as some people try to persuade.

How to recognize sensitivity to nutrients? Most often it manifests itself right after eating after which the baby becomes fussy, tearful or falls asleep only for a while and wakes up clearly dissatisfied, as if something hurt him. Other common symptoms of allergies in children are: hives, eczema, dry skin, wheezing, asthma. In addition, sometimes there is a problem in the form of red, itchy eyes, colic, intestinal upset, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea, green stools with mucus or blood.

Rarely, reactions occur immediately after eating specific foods. In breast-fed children, they can be observed most often after 4 to 24 hours after eating a meal.

What is the most common allergy?

  • cow milk,
  • soy,
  • wheat,
  • maize,
  • eggs,
  • peanuts.

Pay attention to your eating likes and dislikes. Often, you subconsciously avoid products that sensitize your child. In addition, you do not feel like ingredients that affect you badly.

Allergy milk - mother's milk

If you are breastfeeding, don't give up. When you think that a product harms your baby, eliminate all meals containing it (watch out for the ingredient hidden under other names - focus on basic food products). Remove ingredients from your menu one by one, for 2-3 weeks at the beginning and check if the situation is improving.

Read cow's milk allergy.

The child's symptoms usually begin to ease after 5-7 days after the allergen has been removed. The improvement is often not immediately apparent, especially if the ingredient was the basic ingredient in the mother's diet (the woman ate it every day or very often). Some children may even feel worse after eliminating the suspicious component, but over time the situation improves and you can see a difference in the behavior and appearance of the baby.

The only way to 100% confirm that a particular ingredient was a problem is to re-enter it in the menu. If the reaction occurs again, the answer seems obvious.

Allergy milk - vegetable milk

Vegetable milk in small quantities is successfully given to infants and for many mothers it is a great alternative to modified milk.

We can prepare vegetable milk at home. Ready drinks in cartons are also available in the store. You can prepare oat milk, millet milk (recipe), rice milk (recipe), etc.

Modified milk for allergy sufferers

Modified milk is one of the options in the case of an allergy. He often reaches for the finished preparation when the baby reacts badly to cow's milk. The doctor may then recommend Humana SL, Bebilon pepti 2, Nutramigen, Bebilon amino. Individual preparations differ from classic mixtures in that the protein particles have been divided in such a way as to 100% deprive them of their allergenic properties. The particles are so small that they are easy to digest.

When the allergy is very strong, mixtures specially created for the needs of the sick baby are also available.
