Q&A: Baby Allergic To Cows Milkby Christine Wood, M.D
Q My one-year-old son is very allergic to cow's milk. In fact, he had an anaphylactic reaction because of it. I'm breastfeeding on demand, and I plan to do it until he is two years old.
A I would stick with breastfeeding if that is comfortable for you. If your child is receiving 16 ounces of dairy a day, that should be plenty for calcium requirements. If you breastfeed two to three times a day, that should about meet the 16 ounces. You could use rice milk as an alternative to supplement if you need to..Dr. Christine Wood is a practicing pediatrician in Southern California. You can visit her website at http://www.callyourped.com
