ASCIA Infant Feeding Advice: Guidelines for allergies

PDF of the infant feeding advice provided by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy.

These guidelines provide important information on the appropriate formulas to use for allergy prevention.

ASCIA’s stance is to introduce between 4 to 6 months, however the World Health Organisation and the National Health and Medical Research Council recommend to introduce at 6 months.

The recommendation to commence at 6 months is what  Child and Family Health Services support; while you may get a health practitioner provide the 4 to 6 months recommendation, this isn’t in line with current recommendations.
