This is my second post on this community. I devoted the first post to tips: How to teach a child to drink from a straw. Welcome, it is here 😉
This time I will tell you about the TOP 8 food allergens for babies at the age of complementary feeding. I hope you'll like it 😀
This information will be useful for you to protect your child from severe allergies and other troubles.

Milk is the most common cause of allergies.

Soy allergy is detected when a child is first offered a dish that contains soy.
How to understand if soy is in the composition:

Write in the comments which of the allergens I have not yet considered?
Now I will share some tips with moms, whose baby is in the complementary feeding age.
In order to protect your child from severe allergies, you must:
Remember the list of the most allergenic foods;
introduce these products into food carefully, starting with micro doses and monitor the reaction;
introduce the product no later than 14:00 (2 PM) so that the night goes by more calmly;
do not enter simultaneously with another top allergen;
closely monitor the reaction within 72 hours;
have a child's antihistamine in stock;
consult a doctor in case of an allergic reaction to this product.
I sincerely hope that this information will be useful to you. I will be glad to answer your questions, comments and suggestions in the comments.
