Babies are more likely to develop allergies if there is a family history of eczema, asthma, hay fever or food allergy.
So what should you do in order to know which food your baby is allergic to?
• You can introduce the common allergic foods like milk, eggs, wheat, peanuts, nuts, seeds fish and shellfish one at a time to your baby, so you can spot any allergic reaction, but do not introduce this into your baby’s diet before 6 months, as I was also told not to by a pediatrician.
I have actually read an article a year ago that serious allergies to nuts and nut products and some seeds affect about 1 to 2% of the population. It was also said that in the recent years, peanuts allergy, although still uncommon, appears to be increasing and it is also not yet known why.
