Title   Breast Milk Protein Intolerance and Maternal Dairy Consumption
Summary   Breast feeding is the most nutritious form of nourishment in infants and is recommended for at least the first four months of life. Breast fed infants may develop milk protein intolerance. The management of breast milk protein intolerance differs from that of cow’s milk protein intolerance in formula fed infants. Because breast milk is considered by many to be nutritionally superior to formula and results in maternal infant bonding mothers are often told to continue breast feeding. Despite the lack of evidence based data to support or refute the modification of the mother’s diet, it is suggested that they eliminate their own intake of dairy products strictly and avoid supplementing with a cow’s milk based formula. We are doing this study because we believe that deletion of dairy from the diet of a breast feeding mother will not cause BMPI to resolve.
Description   Some infants have difficulty digesting breast milk. When this happens, the doctor may advise the mother to eliminate dairy from her diet as long as she continues breast feeding or until the baby is 12 months old. However, no studies have proven that this change in a mother's diet actually solves the baby's problem with breast milk. The purpose of our study is to find an answer to this question.
