Introduction: Your baby's body is not yet fully grown and is very sensitive to all kinds of things. Therefore, when the adult does not take care of the baby carefully, the baby will have some minor problems, and the following three conditions may indicate that the baby is milk allergic. So, how should we deal with it? Let’s take a look at it.


Spitting milk

This is a relatively common situation, and many parents do not care about it. The main manifestation of your baby's allergy to milk powder is crying, sneezing, vomiting, diarrhea after eating, crying in the middle of the night, irritability, etc., after drinking milk. And also appear symptoms such as swollen skin, redness, urticaria, severe breathing difficulties These symptoms are alleviated after stopping the milk.

Solution: In the face of this situation, it is recommended that parents should feed a baby with breast milk when he is young. Generally, for infants who are easy allergic, they should be exclusively breastfed for the first 4 months, and after 4 to 6 months, they should be supplemented with other complementary foods. And if it is a baby with a family history of allergies, it is best to breastfeed for 10 to 12 months.

Also, after the baby spits milk, it is easy to vomit again immediately after drinking water, so it is best to use a small spoon to feed some water after half an hour. If the baby resists the water or wants to vomit after eating, stop immediately. After the baby is restored to the spirit, the amount of breastfeeding should be halved when feeding again, and if there is resistance or vomiting reaction, stop immediately.

Skin eczema

Your baby's urticaria and eczema may be some allergic reactions, mainly due to exposure to some allergens. Eczema usually occurs one to three months after the baby was born. It usually appears on the face and ears. The skin not only becomes rough but also appear erythema or even small blisters. The baby's mood will be irritated.

Solution: In this case, the diet should be regularly quantified. During breastfeeding, new mothers should supplement milk nutrition and do not eat fish, shrimp, crabs, eggs, and spicy foods, and do not smoke or drink.

It is best to use warm water to baby to the bath. It is recommended to use some weakly acidic body wash. At the same time, choose a large, soft cotton fabric, underwear should also be a soft fabric material, try not to wear silk, wool or synthetic fiber clothing.


Diarrhea accompanied by a rash

One-year-old infants are easy to allergic diarrhea, although the symptoms of the reaction are similar to those of normal diarrhea, this is usually not due to indigestion but to digestive disorders caused by some allergens. If your baby has diarrhea after drinking formula milk powder and is accompanied by a rash, it may be a milk protein allergy.

Solution: Generally speaking, if the baby has severe allergies, immediately stop using this dairy product, and then try to take some hydrolyzed protein milk powder according to the baby's condition. If it is still intolerant, it should be based on amino acid formula milk powder.
