What Are the Signs That Your Baby Has a Milk Problem?

For babies who are breastfed, some problems such as constipation, itchy rash and nausea can be caused by your baby being less tolerant of milk. We can notice it and how it differs from milk allergy.

What Are the Signs That Your Baby Has a Milk Problem?

“Milk protein allergy” and “milk intolerance” are often used interchangeably or the same, but in fact they are not the same.

Milk protein allergy (CMPA) affects about 2-3% of children under one year of age, while milk intolerance has been little studied. Medical observation and parental observation may indicate that many children may have at least one of the symptoms associated with milk intake.

Cow Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA)

Diagnosis of milk protein allergy (CMPA) is a serious health problem. Babies with “CMPA” will have an immediate reaction within hours of drinking milk. But if it is not “CMPA”, the symptoms may be delayed. Most symptoms are moderate to severe and can include:

  • Swelling around the mouth
  • Hard to swallow
  • Vomiting and diarrhea
  • Diarrhea
  • Blood in the stool
  • Do not want to eat
  • Incomplete growth
  • Flatulence (Colic)
  • Severe eczema or rash
  • In rare cases, anaphylactic (shock)

Milk Intolerance

Milk intolerance can have mild to moderate symptoms and appear slowly after drinking milk. Symptoms of milk intolerance include:

  • Swelling of the abdomen
  • Gas
  • Abdominal pain
  • Flatulence (Colic)
  • Liquid stool
  • Constipation

Symptoms in the lung and skin may include:

  • Chronic running nose not related to disease
  • Chronic cough not related to disease
  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Dermatitis
  • Itchy rash

The difference between milk intolerance and milk allergy

It can be difficult to tell the difference between milk intolerance and milk allergy because the symptoms can be similar. The standard diagnostic method for milk protein allergy is: ‘Oral Challenge Test’, which completely avoids milk, accompanied by medical and re-milking, followed by medical monitoring and follow-up.

If your baby is intolerant to milk with the above symptoms, goat milk formula such as Kabrita Goat Milk Formula may be a good choice for your baby.

Because each child is different, we recommend that parents should consult with a specialist if you are concerned about your baby’s symptoms caused by allergies or milk intolerance.
