My son is 6 months and we have been adding a food solid food into his diet every 4 days. He tolerated all the veggies VERY well. We then started fruits. The first fruit we tried was bananas. He didn't seem to like them much and he threw up a little a few hours after eating the bananas. It wasn't much but it was the first time it actually was real vomit smelling and not just spit-out.

He also cried every time he pooped for about 3 days after the bananas.

Am I just paranoid or does this seem like he may have a banana allergy? Thanks!

My oldest has a banana allergy and he throws up within an hour of eating one raw. We didn't find out with him until he was much older. But what I have done with him is given him a week for his system to clean out and then try a little bit again, making sure not to add any other new foods. Then, if he reacts the same way, I would avoid that particular food.

I don't have a banana allergy per se but my tongue gets very sore and occasionally gets sores on it after eating bananas or pinapples. I agree with EmG...keep all new foods out for a week and then try a bit again. If he reacts the same way avoid it for about a year then retry it...

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

Probable he has a histamine intoerlance,

there is one product called Daosin, which helps everybody as well as without any side effects. You can order it online. Just google it eat-all Daosin, thats it

Enjoy the rest of your life!

My son has a banana allergy. I didnt know at first because the first 5 days having it he seemed fine. I continued trying new foods. A lot of baby foods had bananas mixed in. I didn't catch on the reason for his chapped looking cheeks (it was winter time) but I hated it. I tried food elimination until I narrowed it down to bananas. As he got older, the allergy seems to be somewhat worse. Daycare knows he can't have bananas but there were new workers one day (removed from that daycare now) just after he turned 2. I came to get him early that day and they were feeding him bananas!! Benadryl immediately stopped it some but the reaction still left him with a rash the next day. Im glad it was only 2 bites.
