Special case: Allergic baby food

For children with allergies, the optimal time for complementary feeding is 5–6 months. It is now proven: the delayed administration (after 6 months) does not contribute to the prevention of allergies. They begin to lure only when the ailment “calms down” and its symptoms subside.

It is necessary to offer the baby new items, carefully observing its reaction.

Starting a new product with a tiny, literally at the tip of a teaspoon, servings. First give a new product, then a familiar one.

1-2 days watch the reaction. If everything is in order, gradually increase the portion until it reaches the baby’s proper age range.

Getting used to unfamiliar food usually takes 5–6 days. At this time, do not give the child other new products and watch carefully whether there is a rash or redness on the skin (doctors call such symptoms as dermatitis), abdominal pain, regurgitation, diarrhea or constipation.

When problems arise, the new product must be canceled, otherwise it can only lead to an exacerbation of allergies. But the break can be made only for a while: in 2–3 weeks, try the experiment again.

If the reaction is repeated or increased, be sure to check with your doctor, perhaps he will recommend antihistamines. In this case, it will be necessary to acquaint the child with new products according to an individual schedule agreed with the pediatrician and allergist. With the introduction of new products, while the allergic reaction in the crumbs in full swing, you also need to wait, but you should not give up already familiar dishes.

If an infant has an allergy that cannot be corrected with the help of a diet and its manifestations are constantly present, look for its cause not in food, but in something else (for example, there may be a reaction to animal hair, mold fungi). The child in this case should appoint an additional examination.
