I would strongly advise you to keep your baby on the Alimentum formula. It is ideal for babies who are allergic to cow's milk. He must not go back onto the Isomil. It is the cost of the Similac which is probably worrying your paediatrician. When he gets to 12 months write in again and we will discuss the way forward.As your baby has actually had an anaphylactic episode he is at great risk of another episode if he has the tiniest amount of milk or any dairy product. If he accidently has any contact with milk you must give him Zyrtec syrup 1.25ml immediately by mouth. Carry this medicine with you at all times. Your baby is a bit young to use the Epipen junior now even though this would normally be advised for children who have had an anaphylactic episode. The needle is rather large and the dose of adrenaline is a bit high for him now. He will need one when he gets to 1 year of age. It is essential that your baby is seen and managed by a paediatric allergist. Please write to me if you are unable to locate an expert in your area.
