I have mentioned before that Miss A is or was cows milk intolerant. This intolerance caused her a lot of troubles when she was tiny. She had severe reflux, she was being sick and also had silent reflux. She was always screaming in pain after she fed and she never settled in her cot as when she was laying flat the reflux would worsen. This mean’t a lot of sleepless nights for me and her!Miss A was diagnosed with a cows milk intolerance at five and a half months, she had reflux from birth so making people aware of cows milk intolerances and allergies is very important to me as I don’t want anyone to go through what Miss A and me have gone through.
