While rare, breastfed infants can develop food allergies. Talk to your baby’s pediatrician if you suspect your infant has food allergies.
Hypoallergenic formulas have been clinically tested to virtually eliminate allergic reactions in most babies allergic to cow's milk protein.
Some hypoallergenic formulas are made with cow's milk that is broken down into tiny pieces to virtually eliminate allergic reactions in cow’s milk-allergic babies.
If your child is diagnosed with a food allergy, her doctor will likely suggest a hypoallergenic formula, such as Similac® Alimentum®.
Discuss with your pediatrician whether a hypoallergenic formula may be right for your baby.
