If your baby has a medically diagnosed cow's milk protein allergy, a dairy-free infant formula is recommended, such as Lactopriv from Töpfer. This is suitable as the sole food from the birth of your baby and free from cow's milk protein, gluten, lactose (milk sugar), sucrose, galactose and fructose. These ingredients have been replaced with high quality soy proteins, vegetable oils and easily digestible carbohydrates.
Important: Use only under medical supervision! Must not be fed if your baby has a soy milk allergy.
If your baby is prone to spitting up and belching, thickening the formula can help your baby spit less. Special products such as the Dry rice gruel from Töpfer will help.
The organic dry rice gruel from Töpfer serves as a natural swelling substance, which prevents too hasty drinking and reduces reflux. It is purely plant-based, gluten-free and easy to digest. Please consult your pediatrician before use.
Lactose intolerance leads to symptoms such as abdominal pain, flatulence and diarrhea when consuming milk sugar (= lactose). The reason is a lack of the enzyme lactase, which normally breaks down lactose into its individual parts in the small intestine. If this step does not take place, the lactose reaches the large intestine undigested, where it is metabolized by bacteria with the formation of gas. The only remedy is a diet low in lactose - but you do not have to completely do without dairy products.
Milk and dairy products contain many valuable minerals such as calcium and magnesium, but also fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E and K - in short: they are highly recommended for the nutrition of babies and children. Nevertheless, there are cases in which babies have to be fed dairy-free. For example, in the case of lactose intolerance due to lactase deficiency, galactosemia and fructose intolerance. Fortunately, this is only the case in very rare cases. Only a doctor can determine whether your child has one of these conditions.
