If your baby or your child suffer from food allergies, do not worry, it’s not your fault. The following steps can protect your child from the possibility of food allergies:
1. Breastfeed your baby
If possible, give exclusive breastfeeding for 4-6 months. Breastfeeding can protect them from food allergies.
2. Do not introduce solid foods too early.
Try to wait until 6 months before giving your baby solid foods.
3. Avoid foods that commonly cause allergies.
Do not give cow milk to your baby until his/her first birthday. Introduce eggs when s/he is 2 years old. Do not give nuts or fish until s/he is 3 years old.
4. Watch what your eating during pregnancy
Avoid foods that cause allergies during pregnancy. Try to avoid the consumption of nuts, especially if you have a history of allergy in the family.
