Breastfeeding is the best way to feed an infant. If your infant is already breastfed, this can continue even if they have been diagnosed with a milk allergy. However, the rest of your infants diet should not include cow’s milk or milk ingredients. If your infant is not breastfed, they can take a soy-based infant formula. If they have an allergy to soy and to cow’s milk, a doctor or dietitian will recommend a hydrolyzed (completely broken down) formula to meet your infant’s needs. Always speak with your doctor or dietitian about your infant’s food allergies and what option is best for you and your infant.
