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.
