Re: Ever heard of a baby being allergic to BM?

Babies can be allergic to BM itself but it is **extremely** rare and baby has to go to super pricey hypoallergenic formula and all that. A baby that "is allergic to BM" and switches to standard milk/soy formula was not allergic to BM but allergic/sensitive to something in moms diet or mom used it as an excuse to quit for whatever reason.

Maybe allergic to something that she was eating and was getting passed into the BM, but not to BM alone. I don't think that's possible.

It can happen, however it is incredably rare. I know a gal who's dd was allergic to her bm. She was REALLY sick until they figured out what was causing it. Her Mommy had tried eliminating almost everything out of her diet, but she wasn't getting better. Finally they put her on this outrageously expensive formula and that solved the problem. So, even though it is not common at all, it can happen.

I will add that when I was told that her DD was allergic to her bm. My jaw hit the ground, and I thought that there was no way! But, it was the case.

Re: Ever heard of a baby being allergic to BM?

My sister used to babysit a kid with PKU. He was older around 9 or 10 and had a really restricted diet. So I would question if she said they were allergic to BM vs PKU. If she was just saying allergic than I would think it was a sensitivity she never looked into. PKU is disorder which is lifelong....so I think you would discuss it as such not just a BM allergy.

I don't think a baby could have an allergy to bm, but definately something in it that the mother is eating. For example, my ped had me cut all dairy out of my diet for a month to see if Logan's reflux got any better. He thought he may be lactose intolerante.

i voted yes because my step sister had this problem with her son and it was her milk, nothing she tried/eliminated out fo her diet fixed the problem, so i believe so, yes

If a baby has PKU, they would have to be on special formula. So yes, they can be allergic to BM if they have PKU. However, most people who say that don't have children with PKU, they just don't wanna take the time to figure out what it is that THEY're eating that's bothering their child.

Re: Ever heard of a baby being allergic to BM?

I saw a bringing home baby show where a mom had premature twin girls, said she was adament about bfing, but then gave up and said they were allergic. I almost kicked the tv lol! I really doubt that a baby is allergic to bm, more like allergic to some food that the momma is eating. I'm sure it happens but very very rarely!
