Food Allergy Support and Advice
If your baby has a food allergy, it can make life extremely stressful for parents and can have a knock-on impact on all areas of daily life, which can be really tough to deal with. There can be a lot of conflicting advice around this subject too, which doesn’t help parents who are already trying to manage a poorly baby and all of the other pressures of parenthood and normal life.
For babies showing signs of an allergy but the cause is yet uncertain, that can also be a time of great anxiety for parents, as something that should be so simple ‘feeding your child’, suddenly becomes very complicated and worrying.
Babies with food allergies can display reactions after exposure such as:
- A runny or blocked nose
- Watery or itchy eyes
- An itchy rash
- Coughing or wheezing
- And in extreme cases, anaphylaxis, which requires urgent medical treatment
With specialist knowledge in this area, I can offer practical support to the family of a baby with one or more food allergies, helping to dispel myths or poor advice that you may have been given in the past and help you to move forward with confidence, helping ensure your child gets the balanced nutrition they need to grow and develop.
