Why did I give you milk? Because my milk wasn’t smooth so I was distracted with milk. Thank you doctor
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Before continuing, we need to remind that breast milk is the best nutrition for babies aged 0-6 months. It is not even an exaggeration to say that breast milk is the best gift for a mother to her child, because the age of 0-6 months will not be repeated and there is no artificial nutrition which can provide benefits as much as breast milk in that age range. So if you are over 6 months old, then you will give as much milk as you can, as long as you give it exclusively without milk mixture when you are under 6 months. Therefore, if you have not done a doctor's examination to stimulate your milk production, you should do it immediately.
Then regarding allergies, actually there is no allergy to formula milk, what is there is an allergy to animal milk, or in this case cow milk, which is the main raw material for making formula milk. This condition can cause babies to fuss, stomach ache, vomiting, and diarrhea, a very dangerous symptom when experienced by infants and toddlers because it can make them dehydrated and ends fatally.
Therefore, in infants with milk allergies, the solution is to provide soy milk derived from plants, or provide hypoallergenic milk, formula milk that has been processed in such a way, so that the protein content that triggers the allergy has been reduced or even eliminated. This is what happens to the second milk given to your child. The milk is included in the category of hypoallergenic milk, therefore your child who is allergic to milk can digest it properly without eliciting an allergic response. Later on, when your child is older, you may try giving him more cow's milk to see if he still has the reaction. This is because in some children, the allergies can disappear over time.
So, if your child really needs to be given formula milk, make sure he is given milk that has a hypoallergenic label or specifically allergic babies, or give soy milk so that allergies do not recur. But before reaching that stage, as we said earlier, make sure that you have made the maximum effort, including checking with your obstetrician or lactation doctor, and have tried undergoing drug therapy before stating that your milk is not coming out or not smooth, because ASI is the best choice for your child. So, hopefully answering your question.
