Drinking Cow's Milk During Breastfeeding Increases Risk of Baby's Allergies

Drinking Cow's Milk During Pregnancy Increases Risk of Baby's Allergies

Researchers have determined that drinking pasteurized, homogenized cow's milk while breastfeeding significantly increases the chances of the infant becoming allergic.

Medical researchers from Bangkok's Mahidol University tested and followed 62 mothers and their infants through four months of age. Each of the mothers had some form of allergy. The researchers randomly split the mothers into two groups. One group withdrew from drinking cow's milk during breastfeeding and the other did not.

Both groups exclusively breastfed their infants through four months of age. The researchers tested the infants for allergies at seven days old, one month old and four months of age.
