Can breastfeeding trigger allergies?

Yes. Although the contents of breast milk does not trigger allergic reactions, mothers pass things they take in from their environment to their baby through breast milk. While this is excellent for building the baby’s immune system, if the mother is consuming things that the baby is allergic to, such as cow’s milk, those allergens will be present in her breast milk, causing an allergic reaction in the baby.
