Cow milk proteins passed into human breast milk.

Comment about flavours in breast milk (Naked Scientists, 25 july 2010).

Many things mother eats or drinks go into breast milk, including "bad" ones. My newborn developed a bad skin rash. Pediatrician and dermatologists had no clue. It turned out he was allergic to the protein in cow's milk which he was getting from my breast milk. When I stopped drinking cow's milk, most of his symptoms disappeared and I could continue nursing.

Someone out there may find this information useful.

PS. I love the show. Congratulations.

What do you think?
