Symptom Guide

Unfortunately, infants and very young children cannot use words to tell you what’s wrong. But physical symptoms can speak volumes if you know what you’re looking for.

Symptoms of a milk allergy or milk allergy-related conditions can be as diverse as inconsolable crying, baby rash, diarrhea, vomiting and wheezing. This guide should help you identify symptoms so you can discuss them with your doctor and dietitian.

Gastroesophageal Reflux

The flow of stomach contents back into the esophagus and/or mouth. Also referred to as acid reflux.

Infant reflux is normal, usually occuring briefly and without causing symptoms or complications.  In contrast, infants and children with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) experience symptoms, such as heartburn, vomiting or pain with swallowing, as a result of the reflux.
