Feeding difficulties can manifest as regurgitation, colic, constipation or behavioural changes. The causes are often unclear, however physiological immaturity or an inability to break down certain components in milk may be responsible.
This webinar focuses on the following topics –colic, reflux, lactose intolerance, cows’ milk protein allergy and where relevant, the NICE clinical guidelines. Possible causes and management techniques, that can help you to provide reassurance for parents are also discussed.
Evidence suggests that it can take an average of 10 weeks and 4 visits to a healthcare professional to get a diagnosis of cows' milk allergy (CMA).1
Dr Helen Howells explains how to identify the common signs and symptoms of cows' milk allergy and which pathways and tools could be used to aid diagnosis. This webinar will help to provide a better understanding of how to manage common feeding issues and cows' milk allergy in the community.
