What can I do to care for a baby with galactosemia?

Watch the diet. Most babies with galactosemia do great if they stick to a specific diet. In particular, avoiding regular cow's milk is very important. For this condition, soy is a good option. Also, working with a genetic nutritionist who can make recommendations on which foods to avoid once your baby is eating solid foods will help to avoid problems due to this enzyme deficiency.
