We report a study of realimentation techniques in 9 unweaned infants with multiple food hypersensitivity. The patients had presented severe symptoms of cow's milk allergy and successive attempts using milk containing soy protein and/or a semielemental formula in their alimentation did not improve their clinical condition, due to the onset of hypersensitivity to these allergens as well. After a short period of parenteral alimentation the infants were refed per os with ass' milk (250 ml/kg/day… 
Ass’s milk in allergy to Cow’s milk protein: a review
Overall data showed an adequate increase in auxological parameters measured after several months of AM consumption, and suggest that AM might be considered nutritionally adequate in infants and children with CMPA or multiple food allergies, included CMPA.
Nutritional Characteristics of donkey’s milk protein fraction
The low caseins fraction amount as well as the high lysozyme content of donkey milk associated with its good palatability make this milk a valid alternative to powdered milk and soybean milk for infant affected by dairy cows milk allergy.

The number of children who need a CMfree diet during their lives is very great, and an alternative ‘milk source’ must be used; the use of a natural milk, during the CM-free diet period, should be encouraged because of its better palatability and its ‘hormonal peptides’ which stimulate the functional recovery and development of the intestine.
Donkey’s Milk in the Management of Children with Cow’s Milk protein allergy: nutritional and hygienic aspects
DM resulted safe in term of health and hygiene risks and nutritionally adequate: no negative impact on the normal growth rate of children was assessed and may be a suitable alternative for the management of IgE mediated CMA and FPIES, also in the first 6 months of life, if adequately supplemented.
Hypoallergenic properties of donkey's milk: a preliminary study.
This study provided a preliminary evidence of the hypoallergenicity of donkey's milk when compared to bovine and goat milk, and it would be possible to develop a sensitive diagnostic method for CMPA detection, based on chromatographic and immunoblotting analysis.
Allergenicity of mare's milk in children with cow's milk allergy.
Data suggest that mare's milk can be regarded as a good substitute of cow's milk in most children with severe IgE-mediated cow's Milk Allergy, and it would be prudent to confirm its tolerability by a supervised titrated oral challenge test.

In clinical practice, alternative protein sources from vegetable proteins such as soy, animal proteins, milk from different mammalian species or amino acid mixtures are employed and the safe use of these substitutes in infants who are allergic to cow’s milk should comply with the criteria used for hypoallergenic formulas.
Prevention and Management of Cow’s Milk Allergy in Non-Exclusively Breastfed Infants
Partial hydrolysates with clinical proof of efficacy are recommended in some guidelines in the prevention of CMA and allergic disease in at risk infants, and may be considered as an option as protein source in starter infant formula.
Dietary Management of Milk Intolerance
There is no ideal milk substitute for the treatment of milk intolerance and Soya infant formulas are cheap and palatable, but there are concerns over their relative allergenicity and phytoestrogen concentration, although the health implications of the latter are still unclear.
