Most infant formulas contain cow's milk protein. If your baby has symptoms
of a cow's milk protein intolerance, talk to your doctor. He or she may
recommend trying a soy-based or hypoallergenic formula.
It is possible that the main title of the report Angioedema, Hereditary is not the name you expected. Please check the synonyms listing to find the alternate name(s) and disorder subdivision(s) covered by this report.
Some babies who have cow's milk protein intolerance are also
sensitive to soy. But soy formulas are often tried before hypoallergenic
formulas, because they cost less. If
your baby continues to have symptoms after switching to a soy-based formula, he
or she may need the more expensive hypoallergenic formula.
It is important to talk with your doctor continuously throughout this
process of trying formulas and monitoring your baby for symptoms.
