Pediatric Cow's Milk Protein Intolerance

Cow’s milk protein intolerance, or CMPI, is a condition in which the body’s immune system reacts to protein found in cow’s milk. The immune system normally protects our bodies from harm caused by bacteria or viruses. For infants with CMPI, their immune system reacts unusually to the protein found in cow’s milk, and the reaction can cause injury to your child’s stomach and intestines.
