Can my baby be allergic to my milk?

A baby cannot be allergic to his mother’s milk. Your milk is made specifically for your baby. If your baby is showing signs of food sensitivities it is most likely a reaction to something you have eaten. If you suspect your baby is reacting to something you are eating, you can try stopping that food for a short period of time to see if it helps. If you do not notice any improvement, contact your local La Leche League Leader for more information.
