What are foods baby children should avoid

Anything you decide to give to your baby should have a few days to make sure there is no allergic reaction before introducing another new item. At Charlie's 4 month appt, our pediatrician said to avoid things that could be a choking hazard such as honey, peanut butter, any kind of nuts or seeds, and no cows milk until at least one year old. He also said we should stay away from wheat and eggs for a while because those can be foods he might be allergic to.

I'm sure I'm missing some. Anyone else have foods to avoid?

    Peanut Butter, dairy and wheat are all common allergy foods. But it can really be anything. Your best bet is one new food every four weeks.

    Severe allergy will show quickly. Intolerances take longer. My daughter couldn't eat anything with beta-carotene. Found that out after a thanksgiving meal. Poor thing was sick for weeks. What I do is I give them the same food 5-6 times a week and watch them close.. Anything from a change in stools to rashes to even behaviour differences. That amount of time, the food gets built up in their systems and if there's a tiny intolerance, it will show up as it builds up. Two weeks is a minimum, but four is what works for my kids.
