What you can do yourself

There are several recommendations on how to prevent allergies in babies and children. Experts agree that breastfeeding in the first six months of life is one of them. If you can not or do not want to do this, so-called hypoallergenic starter milk is suitable for children with an increased risk of allergies. Children without an allergy risk who can not be breastfed should be given normal baby food. The ideal supplement is between the completed fourth and sixth month of life. In addition to supplements, mothers can breastfeed as long as they wish.

A special diet for allergy-prone children after the fourth month of life is not recommended. Give your baby time to get used to new foods. Carrots, pumpkin, parsnips and potatoes are perfect for a start. Later, fish is recommended as a complementary food. The individual foods should initially be fed in small quantities and initially individually (for example, just a few days only carrot before another vegetable variety is tried). In this way, foods that are not tolerated, easily identify.

If your child is at risk of allergies, it is advisable not to keep any fur-bearing pets, especially cats.

You should have your allergic child vaccinated as normal according to the vaccination recommendations of the Standing Vaccine Commission of the Robert Koch Institute (STIKO). Experts agree that vaccination can not increase the risk of allergies, but on the contrary may possibly lower.

Tips for pregnant and breastfeeding women

  • Take medication only after extensive consultation with your doctor.
  • Do not smoke during pregnancy or after; Even friends and relatives should not smoke in your presence or that of your child.
  • Breastfeed your child and make sure that no cow or soy milk is being fed in the clinic. Fennel tea is easy.
  • During lactation, you should eat a balanced and nutritious diet. There is no evidence that avoiding certain foods can prevent allergies in the child.
