What to Expect: Allergy Skin Testing on Babies:
Studies have shown that highly allergenic foods such as peanut butter and eggs can be introduced to babies between 4 and 6 months and may even play a role in preventing food allergies from developing. If you are nervous about introducing foods to your infant or if you have a family history of food allergies, the best thing you can do is get your child skin tested first. To give you a better understanding of what infant skin testing entails I put together a video of my 4 month old getting skin-tested.
Early Introduction of Peanuts to Infants:
Peanut allergies are on the rise with new people being diagnosed daily. Studies show that early introduction is key! Here is a video I created where I show you how to introduce peanuts to a baby and talk about early introduction of peanuts. I will also introduce you to a peanut product called Bamba.
