Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Breast milk (ASI) is the best nutrition a baby can get in less than 6 months compared to any other type of food. However, under various conditions and due to medical indications the baby cannot obtain exclusive breastfeeding so formula milk is needed.
Formula milk giving causes an allergic reaction due to the body's immunological response to cow's milk protein. There are no typical symptoms for cow's milk allergy where complaints can include disorders of the digestive tract, skin and respiratory system. Perceived complaints such as skin rashes, vomiting, diarrhea, vomiting, spasms, to anaphylaxis, diarrhea, colic pain, or failure to grow.
The diagnosis for an allergic type of IgE-mediated cow's milk allergy is by symptoms and a specific IgE test (skin prick test or RAST test) is performed. If the results are positive then elimination of foods containing cow's milk protein. If the results are negative, then foods that contain cow's milk protein can be given back.
Babies who get formula milk generally have a frequency that is less frequent compared to those who get exclusive breastfeeding. This is nothing to worry about if the child does not look in pain and continues to gain weight. Spit up is also not a typical sign for milk allergy but rather due to excess fluid volume that does not match the baby's stomach size.
You can consult your child's condition for further examination. If it is already indicated having a milk allergy, the doctor will recommend other milk that is more appropriate and hypoallergenic.
That's all, hope you can help
