Introducing new foods

Weaning an infant with cow’s milk allergy should ideally begin at 6 months and no sooner than 4 months old.1 There is no evidence that delaying weaning beyond the sixth month of life has a protective effect against atopic dermatitis and sensitisation.2

Just like infants without cow’s milk allergy, care is needed to encourage children with cow's milk allergy to eat a variety of flavours and textures to help prevent faddy eating behaviour and to establish healthy eating habits.3

Continue milk alternatives,4 such as Nutramigen LGG, during weaning to ensure infants don’t miss out on essential nutrients as part of a diversified diet.
