Mothers should be encouraged to continue breastfeeding even when their infants have CMPA. This usually requires qualified dietary counselling to completely exclude all sources of cows’ milk protein from the mothers’ diet. If a decision to use a special formula intended for infants is taken, it is important to give instructions on correct preparation methods, emphasising that unboiled water, unsterilised bottles or incorrect dilution can all lead to illness.
Formula for special medical purposes intended for infants must be used under medical supervision.
