Allergy & Food Intolerance (2022)
This leaflet discusses the symptoms and treatment of food allergy and intolerance in the breastfed baby. The updated 2022 edition, now in an extended 8-page booklet format, includes information on IgE and Non-IgE mediated allergy symptoms and suggestions for identifying both food and environmental triggers. It also discusses managing your own diet if you think your baby is reacting to a specific food you have in your milk and how and when you might introduce your baby to solids.
Since babies can be unsettled for many reasons we suggest you first consult our leaflet The Unhappy Breastfed Baby to help you determine whether your baby's behaviour is due to something other than an allergy. Alternatively call our helpline and speak with an LLL Leader.
