From the first night that Jill brought her new little girl, Natalie, home from the hospital, she was sick to her tummy. Natalie suffered from painful gas, diarrhea and vomiting. Natalie was screaming constantly and it was taking a toll on the entire family. After weeks and numerous visits to the pediatrician, Natalie was finally given the correct diagnosis of a milk protein allergy and was put on an amino acid based formula.

Unfortunately, I have talked to countless parents who experienced these, and the other symptoms of a milk protein allergy, often for too long than they should have.
If any of these symptoms sound a little too familiar to you, visit http://www.testforallergy.com/ for a quick “test” to see if your child is showing sings of a milk allergy. If so, the site will also provide you with helpful information you can discuss with the pediatrician.
