What is Cow Milk Allergy?

Cow Milk Allergy (CMA) often develops within the first year of life. It occurs when the body does not tolerate one or more proteins found in cow milk. These proteins may be ingested through infant formula, or through breast milk (depending on the mother’s diet) or through food containing cow milk (in older infants).

Common symptoms can include diarrhea, constipation, colic, food refusal, poor growth, eczema, and wheezing. CMA can be upsetting for babies and their families as the allergy signs and symptoms are often nonspecific and may vary which may make it harder to diagnose. If you suspect your child may have CMA after using our symptom checker or if you have any concerns regarding the health of your child, please consult with your child’s healthcare professional.

Food allergies affect approximately 500,000 children across Canada. Cow Milk Allergy (CMA) is the most common food allergy in infancy and early childhood.

Ryder’s Story*

Ryder experienced reflux symptoms soon after he was born. At 5 weeks old he developed a fever, which brought him to the hospital. After 4 long exhausting days in the hospital, Neocate® was started by the pediatric gastroenterologist. After two weeks I was so thankful for sticking with the Neocate®. In this photo, he was about to turn one and he was a happy Neocate® baby!**
