Hello! You’ve most likely found yourself here because you’ve recently had a diagnosis of Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA) for your little one, or you suspect that dairy might be causing a problem for them. This page will point you to some great starter resources, so that you can get to grips with CMPA, and get rid of that awful overwhelming feeling you’ve got right now. I’ve been there, and I get it, so don’t worry – you’re in good hands. Together we can get to the bottom of what’s going on with your little one, help you adjust to a dairy free lifestyle if required, find you some dairy free chocolate and help you continue to breastfeed your little one if that’s what you want to do.
So this page is like a little directory, pointing you to more useful resources and helping you find the information easily and quickly whenever you need it. It’s regularly updated, as are all the pages linked from here so please bookmark this page rather than screen shot, so that you’re always getting the most up to date info. If there are more resources you’d like to see or you have more questions feel free to send me a message over on my Facebook page or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
