What are the signs that your baby has allergy's to a certain food?? I just started vegetables and for 2 days we have done squash and last night I noticed little red bumps on her belly! Is this an allergy to it? and if not what could it be????

  • Ask the Dr if in doubt- my son was allergic to APPLES of all things- he threw up and broke out in hives- HOWEVER- when he turned 2 the allergy stopped- this CAN happen- his Dr told meof the possiblity and so around his 2nd bday I just tried some fruit juice (even that made him sick) and he was fine- little by little I tried more apple foods and he did great- just talk to your Dr :)

  • little red bumps were a sign of an allergic reaction fro my dd. they started on her back then spread to her belly, arms, neck, face and head! But rash can mean anything, best to have a professional tell.

  • We are figuring this out also - my son gets little red spots on his face - looks like red freckles cause they aren't inflammed at all. then his ezcema on his butt starts getting really itchy and he scratches it til it bleeds. So far we have found it to be whole milk and apples..

  • I would say to ask the doctor. The doctor told me to watch for diaper rash, and a rash around the mouth, but every baby is different,.
