My baby son was extremely poorly from about 3 weeks old, after admission to hospital he was diagnosed with a cows milk allergy which meant that he could only use a specialist formula milk which could not be bought of the shelf, meaning that he had to be ordered at least 3 days in advance. The cost was also extremely expensive but we were told it was available on prescription thankfully.
However we were never seen directly by a dietician so had limited understanding of the condition as a result we used the internet to educate ourselves.
We had to constantly chase them up for the prescription, despite informing them how much we needed we were always on the back foot having to chase prescriptions and bunting additional tins in ourself so we were always certain we had some milk in.
