Hello Nita, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Babies who have cow's milk protein allergy can have symptoms of red rash (especially on the cheeks, neck), nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, spasms, etc. when consuming cow's milk. To avoid this risk, at the age of <6 months the WHO (World Health Organization) recommends exclusive breastfeeding to infants, followed by breastfeeding + complementary feeding (with gradual consistency) from ages 6 to 2 years.
The milk that you mentioned in the question is hypoallergenic milk which is claimed by the manufacturer to reduce infant allergies. There is no limit on the duration of this milk. In general milk in circulation has similar nutritional content because it follows the RDA (Recommended Dietery Allowence) standard. Keep in mind that cow's milk protein allergy can be reduced by desensitization (formula feeding is gradually increasing over time, to increase tolerance), but this technique requires expert assistance especially if the baby experiences a severe allergic reaction.
Take care of the adequacy of the baby's nutrition, and it is strongly recommended to try relactation (re-giving breast milk) for example by: feed the baby as often as possible every 1-2 hours, pump ASI every 2 hours if not breastfeeding, slowly reduce the consumption of formula milk-replaced with ASI. If the baby is more than 6 months old, the baby needs complementary foods. The following is a guide from the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI) regarding MPASI recommendations to increase knowledge.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful.
