Look for these Signs if your Baby has a Formula Allergy

Majority of the baby formula products in the market are rich in lactose components. However, there may be reasons why your baby may not be very happy with a formula diet. Let us look at some of these here:

Your baby may be lactose intolerant

No, I am not talking about milk allergy. In the case of lactose intolerance, the baby’s body cannot absorb sugar and hence rejects it. Such lactose intolerance may be commonly seen in the case of premature infants, genetic makeup of parents (either or both being lactose intolerant), severe diarrhoea which weakened the capacity of baby to digest lactose temporarily, or a digestive disorder such as Crohn’s disease.

Symptoms of Formula Allergy

Now let us quickly go through typical symptoms of a slight formula allergy:

  1. Dry and itchy skin behind knees or elbows.
  2. Red spots or hives
  3. Swollen lips or mouth
  4. A red ring along anus which is not due to diaper
  5. Uncomfortable and fussy after eating


We highly recommend the following products for your baby:

  1. Similac pro advance baby formula
  2. Similac Pro sensitive baby formula

These are rich in FL Human Milk Oligosaccharide (HMO) that helps in enhancing baby’s immune system and supports healthy growth and development.

  1. Honestly, I think the science of formula has come such a long way in a short amount of
    time and many people don’t know how good it actually is these days! Just pay attention
    to what’s actually in the formula. I am a trained brand ambassador with Enfamil, but for
    example, their NeuroPro line has double the DHA that Similac has. Here’s a good article
    from babycenter on why DHA is important: https://www.babycenter.com/baby/hear-frommoms/a-pediatrician-s-view-why-dha-is-an-important-nutrient-for-y_40007266
