I'm hoping that someone can respond to a member on Allergic Living's forum. Obviously I have limitted knowledge as it is my daughter with the milk allergy.

here is the original post, Quote:
Hi,
I'm not a mom, but my sister gave birth 3 weeks ago. I just can't get enough of the little guy. But I'm going to start to babysit him once in a while and... the last thing I want to do is have a reaction! Anyone with experience out there that can help me. I'm not the one drinking what's in the bottle, but I do have to manipulate it, clean etc... Is breast milk safe... for me? Any formula safe... for me? He's not allergic to milk, I am... which kind of makes weird questions... but I thought this could be the place to ask...


If you wish to respond, go to http://www.allergicliving.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=27274#27274

I hope this is OK to post Smiley If not just let me know.

It said I had to be a member to respond & I'm not. So here's my response if someone wants to repost it.

I'm not milk allergic. My 2 1/2 year old is ana to milk (+ 5 other things.) We asked. She isn't nursing anymore, but would be around her brother who is nursing. We were concerned about spit up, leaking, etc. We were told that being allergic to cow's milk does not mean you'd be allergic to human milk, and that a human milk allergy is very very uncommon. HOWEVER, she could potentially have an issue with something that I ate that is one of her allergens (which isn't an issue b/c I don't eat things she's allergic to.) However, just being near spit up that contained breast milk with cow's milk in it most likely would be fine. And actually, even though she's now ana to milk, she never once had any sort of reaction to comsuming my breast milk which contained all sorts of things she's allergic to.

Formula would make me a little more nervous, since most is based on cow's milk. She is however around that (other people's babies) but I do treat it as cautiously as we do when she's around other kids drinking cow's milk (watching her & them like a hawk!)

Cow's milk & human milk are totally different. I'm sure that when she's the mom, there won't be any issue. Feeding the baby will most likely be fine - I'd just wash my hands really, really well & quickly clean up any spills (maybe even use gloves.)
