Mother and BabyA skin rash, excessive spitting up or gas, constipation, stomach cramps, bright green or black stool, ear pain, and refusal to eat are just some of the signs you may see signaling a possible food allergy in your baby.

But these symptoms aren’t necessarily signs of a food allergy – they could be caused by a number of other factors as well.

If you begin to see patterns of one or more of these symptoms, start recording the details of each symptom in a daily journal, along with keeping a record of the foods both you and your baby are eating each day and talk to your child’s pediatrician about your concerns and findings.
