Complete nutrition for the management of cow's milk protein allergy (CMPA).

Product highlights

Of all the infant food allergies, cow’s milk protein allergy or CMPA is the most common in infants. 
CMPA occurs when a baby’s immune system reacts to the proteins in cow’s milk.

  • If your baby is suspected to have or is diagnosed with CMPA, your baby’s doctor might recommend changing from a routine formula to a hypoallergenic extensively hydrolyzed infant formula.

IT IS IMPORTANT to always contact a healthcare professional before making any changes to your baby’s diet.
