Breast Milk is Best

As a mother of a child with multiple life-threatening food allergies, including soy and cow's milk, I find that your magazine is an indispensable resource. The article, “Got Milk?”, was full of helpful information. But I was surprised and disappointed to find that there was no mention of the perfect milk for infants — human breast milk. If food allergies are diagnosed in a breastfeeding infant, these allergens can often be removed from the mother's diet with good results.

Once I was done breastfeeding my son, we switched him to enriched rice milk with the addition of a vegan rice protein powder. I can attest that he is growing like a weed!
