If there has been no allergic reaction then there is no need to test with two exceptions. Family history of a lethal reaction. For example if Grandma is allergic to fish, and Mom is allergic to fish, then be extra careful with fish around the child. Doctors advise allergen testing. I'm not one to say blindly follow doctors' advice, but if a doctor is ...

Use sunbutter or wowbutter and jelly. They are peanut butter substitutes that are supposed to taste exactly like peanut butter, but are both 100% peanut free! I have a peanut allergy and I eat it all the time.

The main consideration with infant sunscreens are they should be Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide based only; not only will these be much less irritating1, but they are considered safer. Infants absorb a lot more through their skin than older children and adults, and so the Oxybenzone and other organic chemicals in many adult (and even some child) sunscreens ...

The best sunscreen is one that doesn't trigger her allergies. There's no "one size fits all" here -- for example, I'm allergic to a common ingredient (I don't know which one) in most "hypoallergenic" sunscreens. What you should do is test sunscreens as you get them: spread a small amount on the inside of her wrist (one of the places where the skin is the ...

Like the comment above, the first thing we need to know is the age of the child. For example, a young child with a needle phobia is going to freak out when you use the epi pen (or similar). Those HURT. A lot. Expecting a child to be calm when you are shoving a needle in their leg (and holding it for 10-15 seconds) is not reasonable. In this case, remember ...

You could paper and a pencil. If you use a notebook, you can write exactly what you want. You can record stuff about the meal such as date, individual ingredients, beverages, amount eaten, etc. You can also record when there are incidents you think are food related, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. You can also have multiple notebooks, or just share ...

I tend to use Trello to track all kinds of things. It's essentially a series of lists grouped into a board. The app (android) is great, as is the website and will allow for multiple users (Parents, grandparents, caregivers) to log in and make changes/add new entries. As an example you could create lists for foods eaten, and if there is a reaction to that ...

I'm using Feed Baby (Pro) to track feeding, sleeping, diapers and so on. I find it very user-friendly, for example you tap to log what is going on now, and you hold to log an event that happend in the past. You can just select and tap to add an event without details or add a short note. It has cloud backup, and you can synchronize accross devices. The ...

Trixie Tracker has a section for eating, as far as I can recall. You have to pay for that. It stores data online. I don't know if it will correlate data, but you can enter observations about meals. I has been 3 years since I have used it, so you may want to double check. Care Zone has tools for managing anyones health. It is mostly about medications and ...

We used Almond Butter, it looks and tastes comparable but contains no peanuts. But the camp might have problems with that too, although they are generally made specifically as peanut-butter substitute and are thus safe for peanut allergies.

Normally everyone will start the solids food when the kid is around 6th month. It is the right time to start the food. I would like to share that you can start with the sweet potato it has to be smooth so that LO should have any difficult while having it. And you can give cereal rice(paste or grid it) smoothly. I think you can start with the single grain ...

I read this article and it explains well about the baby food in the first year. Baby Food Stage 1: Birth to 4 months What to feed: Only food for infants is breast milk or infant formula to meet all their nutritional needs. Recommended milk is breast milk only. You should start giving formula or any other substitute in case breast milk supply ...
