Food allergies in infants are uncommon. Of all the infant food allergies, cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) is one of the most common, affecting up to 3% of babies before their first birthday. Cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) occurs when a baby’s immune system reacts to the protein in cow’s milk, and affects both breastfed and formula fed babies.
