IMPORTANT NOTICE : Mothers should be encouraged to continue breast-feeding while avoiding all milk and milk products from their own diet. This usually requires qualified dietary counseling to completely exclude hidden sources of cow’s milk protein. If a decision to use a special formula intended for infants is taken, it is important to give instructions on correct preparation methods, emphasising that unboiled water, unsterilised bottles or incorrect dilution can all lead to illness. Formula for special medical purposes intended for infants must be used under medical supervision.
