Does my baby have MSPI?

Does your baby have trouble digesting the proteins in dairy and/or soy? Is your babies reflux a symptom of a dairy/soy intolerance? Take this quiz to find out if your babies health issues may be related to a problem with dairy/soy proteins (MSPI). Please note that not all babies who are dairy intolerant are also soy intolerant, but about 50-60% are.

This is a tool to help you decide if dairy/soy may be an issue for your baby and is based on the typical symptoms for MSPI. It should not substitute for consulting with your baby's pediatrician or GI specialist, but should help you to understand if these proteins may be a problem and if you should consider giving your baby a dairy/soy free diet.
