Cows’ Milk Allergy Weaning Guide

Weaning, also known as complementary feeding, is the process of switching an infant from breast milk or formula only diet, to one where solid food is introduced.

It can be an exciting time for parents and baby, but this journey can also be challenging, particularly when an infant has cows’ milk allergy, so support is often needed.

Our guidebook is here to help! It was developed by leading dieticians and parents, and provides a step-by-step guide to weaning a child with cows' milk allergy who is using Althéra® or Alfamino®.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Breastfeeding is the best form of nutrition for babies and provides many benefits to babies and mothers. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, balanced diet. Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breastmilk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. Always consult your healthcare professional for advice about feeding your baby. The social and financial implications of using infant formula should be considered. Improper use of an infant formula or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard. If you use infant formula, you should follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make your baby ill. Formula for special medical purposes intended for infants must be used under medical supervision.
