Nursing Mothers Consume Processed Cow’s Milk, Does It Affect Babies 1 Month Of Age Who Are Allergic To Milk?
Morning,. My child is 1 month and a half old and is allergic to cow’s milk. If I eat or drink processed milk from cows, does it affect my child because he is sucking on me?
Thank you for the question.
Allergy to cow's milk in infants can manifest diverse, for example:
Indigestion, such as nausea, vomiting, frequent belching, bloating, frequent bowel movements, diarrhea, constipation, colic
Skin disorders, such as itching, bruntusan, swelling, redness, blisters
Respiratory disorders, such as shortness, coughing, breathing sounds
Others, such as rapid pulse, palpitations, fussiness, excessive sweating, and so on
Manifestations of cow's milk allergy generally appear when your baby consumes cow's milk directly and its processed products. However, in sensitive babies, these allergic manifestations can also occur due to babies consuming your breast milk containing cow's milk and its processed products. Often, these allergic manifestations cannot be predicted at the time of their appearance and severity. Therefore, you should be more careful.
You can still consume cow's milk and its processed products, but it should be done in small amounts. If after consuming cow's milk and its processed products, then breastfeed your baby, then there are signs of severe allergies in your baby, meaning that the dose of consumption is excessive and you have to reduce it.
That's all our explanation. For more details, consult further with your doctor or pediatrician who is caring for your baby.
I hope this helps.
