Myth: Some babies are allergic to their mother's milk.

Reality: No baby is allergic to its mother's milk.

Dr. Adesman Explains: "It's easy to misinterpret signs like spitting up as a signal there is a problem, but the fact is, it is biologically impossible. Some babies can have allergic reactions to the foods Mom is eating during breastfeeding, including cow's milk, but, in general, women should feel good about nursing."
