ProbablyNotTeething: Sounds like my old girlfriend...My guess is it's diet. Intolerance to whatever he might be eating right now. Commonly, dairy or soy or broccoli or wheat.

After eating scrambled eggs for the first time my 9 month old started gagging and got very fussy and congested. Could this be an allergic reaction?

After eating scrambled eggs for the first time my 9 month old started gagging and got very fussy and congested. Could this be an allergic reaction?

Yes: I encourage parents to avoid eggs until after a year of age.If your kid has any negative reaction to a new food you should avoid it for at least a month or more depending on the degree of response. Hives or breathing problems should increase avoidance until you have discussed the issue with your doc, and possibly had allergy tests run. Some food reactions can increase intensity each time. ...Read more

Can a 9 month old infant eat tuna?

Can a 9 month old infant eat tuna?

Yes, but...: In a healthy 9-month-old no food, including tuna, needs to be delayed to reduce allergies (in fact, feeding may reduce allergies).

And 'light' tuna better than 'white'. Some brands have lower mercury (smaller fish) options. ...Read more
