I gave dd bananas today(secondt ime she has had them) and now I notice that she has a small pimpley type rash on her face and chest. She is acting fine. Do I never give them to her again. Wait a few weeks/months and try again? Call the ped? Thanks.

Hey my ds has problems with bananas, if you think the rash is from them, wait a few weeks and try again. I re-introduced bananas 3 times and now haven't given them for 2.5 months, the doc told me to try with really small amounts so I'll be doing that soon. My ds doesn't get a rash, he has gastro problems..anyways same procedure.. good luck. My ds also had problems with sweet potatoes.

My ds didn't get a rash after bananas but it did constipate him instantly. His poor poops were coming out like little rabbit pellets! I would discontinue them, wait a few wks, try again and if u notice the same rash then you know it's the bananas. Then they say to wait a few months. But, it could be that the rash is just from drool or teasing. Only way to know is to stop and then try again later.

well im gonna say that you should call your ped. My ds who is now 5yrs old, had a similar reaction to eggs at 1yr...i was SO freaked out that i never offered them not until it was too late for him to ever like them. Maybe if it doesnt interfere w/their breathing it is better to re=introduce...i dont know...but this time around w/my DD im going to be cautious but more aggressive b/c i do not want another picky eater like my son.....or im going to be making 4 different meals every meal time. UGH!!!! Good Luck..(BTW i think it is so normal to be over cautious---esp w/food allergies)

Thanks ladies- I guess I will wait a bit and try in a few weeks. She goes to the ped monday for her 6 month check-up so I will ask then, The rash is super super faint now....

waililng, constipating is what bananas are supposed to do, that was how we knew it was a problem for my ds he pooped like 6 times a day instead of 1!!!

Yes, bananas are known to constipate babies. I don't think its even considered an allergic reaction. You need to balance his diet out more with those fruits that cause softer stools (eg. pears).

I did feed the pears after 2 days, and let me tell ya, they worked like a charm:) Now, I'll know to do both
