This second e-book, Crying babies and food in the early years, was the third part of a larger (840 pages) hardback, Milk Matters: infant feeding and Immune disorder, which is available as a hardback reference text from major retailers. This e-book is intended as a practical guide to dealing with the problems of early food sensitivity in breastfed infants. It begins with a questionnaire designed to help parents identify family food sensitivities, to understand where these have come from, and to recognise their effects in the family.

Crying babies and food does not go into detailed explanations of why and how so many complex feeding problems have arisen in affluent societies.

That companion e-book outlines my milk hypothesis and its basis in science and history, including the past, present, and future realities of infant formula, and its documented risks and inevitable harms. The Milk hypothesis characterises modern epidemics ...
