My 18 week old daughter has had little pinpricks of blood in her stool. We have ruled out a milk protein allergy. What can it be?
Still milk protein. It is difficult to diagnose food allergy in infants with the standard food allergy techniques. Soy intolerance occurs in 50% of these babies. Many infants also react to partially digested cow's milk protein and need to go onto more advanced formulas. Breast feeding is the best with mom following a strict cow's milk protein free diet.
