I have to say that both of my children are in good health even though one was exclusively formula- fed. Now I would like to say that my formula-fed child suffers from food allergies. But my youngest child who was breastfed have no allergies at all. Could it be the formula?

DD was breastfed for 21 months and has tons of allergies. DS has none - even though he had formula because he was too small to latch as a newborn.

IDK, neither asthma nor allergies run in my family. One child was bf'd for 5 months, the other never had formula. Neither of them have issues now.

No. If that was the case then 99% of the general public born in the 50's & 60's would all have food allergies since BF was not common then. And they Don't. My child has no food allergies either. I believe it's hereditary or due to environmental exposure to an irritant.
