In Reply to: Milk Protein Allergy posted by Bridget on January 20, 2000 at 23:43:50:

: At 6 wks. old my daughter, now 3mths.old, was diagnosed with Milk Protein Allergy after having vomitted blood & having blood in her stool. A gastroscope & colonoscope was done to determine the problem. I was strictly breastfeeding & once the diagnosis was made she was placed on Pregestimil formula. This is very expensive & I was wondering if anyone out there has a similar situation with a less expensive solution. Thanks!

Hi, My daughter who is now 26mo. is so severely allergic to milk that a drop can't even touch her skin. I, too was breast feeding. She was full of ezcema. She looked like she had second degree burns all over her body. I wish I had a great solution for you. I'm curious as to why the baby was taken off breast milk. I just removed every bit of dairy from my diet and she started to heal. I wish you lots of luck. They say she'll outgrow it. I have yet to see any signs of that happening. We don't eat pizza anymore and I bring her food with us where ever we go. It's a small compromise for her health. I'm terrified of what will happen when she starts pre-K next year. Snack time with a bunch of milk slurping 3 yr olds are the thing of my nightmares. Good Luck
