Help! How quickly do traces of cows milk transfer into breast milk after consumption?

I had a little bit of chocolate earlier (my mother in law knows I can’t consume milk due to my daughter and I stupidly trusted her) my daughter fed 90 minutes before I ate it. An hour and a bit after I consumed it she had another feed. Now she is refusing anymore food (it’s been 6 hours - she feeds every 2-3 hours) she’s screaming constantly, arching her back, thrashing her legs around etc. Ciuld it have transferred into. My milk that quickly?

@elisha I unfortunately can’t do this. She won’t take a bottle, we’ve tried so many different ones. But thank you! She’s got the doctors tomorrow anyway about something else but I’ll bring it up. I think they’ll probably confirm an allergy now. (My older two have them as well but we never breast fed so new to this side of things)

yes it can, although many studies have different answers anywhere from 1-4 hours the dairy can transfer into breast milk, if you consume dairy it’s recommended to wait atleast 72 hours before breastfeeding again it can take anywhere between 24-48 hours before it leaves babies system x

Unfortunately yes 😔
