Milk Challenge

Infants usually need 6 months of being symptom free before they are re challenged with cow’s milk and this does not usually happen before 12-18 months of age and depends on the timing of diagnosis. Introducing cow’s milk back into the diet of a child with a cow’s milk allergy should only be done with appropriate guidance and this will usually be done through regular check-ups with the GP, paediatrician or dietician.
