What if the baby is breastfed or formula fed?

If the baby’s mother is breastfeeding, she should refrain from consuming the baby’s reactive foods, as the proteins in the foods appear in her milk and are then passed to the baby when nursing.

This should also influence panel selection, in other words, which foods are tested. If the baby is formula fed, it’s best to choose the test panels with the formula ingredients in mind. If the baby is breastfed, the mother’s typical food consumption should be considered.
