Similac Alimentum

 

 

Understanding cow's milk allergy (CMA)

It is not uncommon for children to be affected by cow's milk allergy (CMA), in fact it is one of the most common childhood allergies in the UK.1 Common symptoms can affect the skin, gut and respiratory system. 2

The good news is, once whole cow's milk protein is removed from the baby's diet the symptoms normally improve.

 

 

Introducing Similac Alimentum

Similac Alimentum is a hypoallergenic infant formula in which the proteins have been broken down into tiny pieces (extensively hydrolysed) and are therefore less likely to be recognised by a baby's immune system,reducing the likelihood of allergic symptoms in babies sensitive to cow's milk protein.3

Similac Alimentum has been specially formulated to provide your baby with relief from their symptoms of CMA as well as ensuring they receive the nutrients they need to support their growth and development.3Which means a happy baby and a happy mum!

MomenTums.co.uk is an online resource for parents of children with CMA. Click here for tips, advice and practical downloads to help you manage your child’s allergy.

Breastfeeding is best for babies, and is recommended for as long as possible during infancy. Your child's doctor, health visitor, pharmacist or dietitian will be able to advise if Similac Alimentum is suitable for your child.
