baby allergiesWhen can I stop feeding my baby a new food at a time to see if allergies?

My son is 10 months old and quickly made the change to table food. He is beginning to eat what we eat more and more.  Should I introduce a new food every few days to wait and see if he is allergic.  If after a few months after he has had a variety of food and has had no allergic reaction, it is safe to proceed with new foods at a faster pace? Thank you!

Yes it is.  As long as you keep in mind thatyou should not combine ingredients.  There are some additional things you may want to do …. keep a good log with dates, time and food given  so if you do have a reaction, you may have some idea what caused it.

Introduce new food categories gradually if you feel he is showing any signs of a possible reaction.  For example, fish is an entirely new category of food and is known to be a possible food allergen.  Go slow and at some point you can other known food allergens such as walnuts or strawberries.  It is best not to give known allergy causing foods all together but to space them out gradually.  Dairy, wheat, fruits and nuts are the four primary foods which may cause baby food allergies.

It is important to remember that you should test the same food multiple times before assuming that a child is not allergic to a particular food.  Additional care should be taken if severe food allergies run in the family since most allergies are hereditary.
