  • Here is a page i found on it http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Can_a_baby_be_allergic_to_breast_milk
    it is called methylmalonic acidaemia. "This condition means that the baby is unable to breakdown protein and thus the protein in the milk is poisoning the whole"

    and here is the other two site about it that that one gives you http://www.itv.com/Lifestyle/ThisMorning/Health/AllergictoBreastMilk123/default.html

  • just so u know my DD had severe eczema. After finding out her allergies I took dairy, gluten, eggs, white sugar, brown sugar, cane sugar out of my diet. It took 8wks for her skin to clear. It takes awhile before it works it's way through you. Her reflux improved faster than her skin. This link may help you http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns/food-sensitivity.html Hidden dairy etc is hard to find unless you know what u r looking for. At that link though you will find links to learn more about that rare case of a true breastmilk allergy.

  • galactosemia, phenylketonuria, maple syrup urine disease

    True lactose intolerance in infants is called galactosemia, an extremely rare genetic condition (approximately 1 in 30,000 US births) that is present from birth and fatal if not treated; a baby with the disorder would not gain weight well and would have clear symptoms of malabsorption and dehydration.
