Hello, Linda Fikri. Thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Milk allergy is a natural response from the immune system to milk and other products that contain milk in it. Symptoms that can arise include a runny nose, watery eyes, vomiting, diarrhea and skin rashes. Your child is only allergic to cow's milk, not breast milk, so you are not advised to stop breastfeeding. Breast milk is rich in nutrients that are not the same as other foods or drinks, and its composition is easier to digest than formula milk. Some tips for you include:
1. Exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, then continued with breastfeeding until the age of 2 years.
2. You should avoid foods and drinks that contain milk or milk protein, such as butter, yogurt, pudding, protein powder, cheese, etc.
3. If your child consumes formula milk, replace the child's milk with soy-based formula.
Thus, hopefully useful.
