Food For G6pd Babies
Breast or Formula: Breast milk is best, but commercial formulas are fine for babies with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. Sulfa drugs, acetaminophen, and anti-malarial medications should be avoided, and as the child ages, fava beans must not be eaten and other legumes should be introduced with caution. Vitamin c, 60-100 mg/day, can help preserve glutathione in this condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Most are safe: From the time when babies are sitting to when they walk is a marvelous opportunity to introduce many flavors of foods (www.Drgreene.Com/colorin). Kids with g6pd deficiency should avoid fava beans. Some kids - depending on their variant - should also avoid blueberries (& yogurts containing them), soy, other legumes, some chinese herbs, or tonic water (not great for babies anyway). I love g6pd.Org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vitamin E and Folic : Food high in vitamin e and Folic Acid help decrease red blood cell breakdown in g6pd. Definitely avoid fava beans since they are a known cause of red blood cell breakdown in the blood. Mom could be careful to chose for herself milk formulas which have no traces of soy or soya beans since soy and red wine, and blueberries could trigger g6pd. ...Read more

6 wk old breastfed only newborn, just diagnosed with cow protein allergy. On dairy free diet. Can i still eat beef?
4 mo boy exclusive breastfeeding. Has rashes on face every time when mom eats prawns or shell seafood. Allergy? Coincidence?
No: Since breast milk does deliver some food allergens consumed by the mother, it is not a coincidence if this happens every time you ate shellfish. I would suggest that you avoid shellfish or discontinue breastfeeding. At age 4 months, it is also time to introduce table foods (no shellfish) to the child's diet since this may actually reduce the risk of developing yet more food allergies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Milk intolerance: While this can happen it is hard to prove. The usually reported symptoms are fussiness after breast feeding, perhaps somewhat like colic, diarrhea, possibly vomiting (unusual). The test you can do is to eliminate cow's milk for a week and see if it makes a difference (but you will need to supplement the calories, vitamins, fats and proteins with something else). ...Read more

Can a breastfeeding mother include milk curds in diet? Elders say lacto bascillus in curds is not good for baby?
Yes: I routinely suggest the use of probiotics including lactobacillus for babies. It is especially helpful if they have had diarrhea or antibiotic treatment. Why your elders suggest it is a problem is confusing. The germ doesn't get into breast milk anyway, and can be fed directly to baby if you desire. ...Read more

Keep offering an: array of options. Research shows that kids will eat a balanced diet if you make sure there is a mix of all the major food groups. Don't turn it into a battle, just keep having her try things. Some kids are more sensitive to some smells and tastes. If she is tasting I would not worry. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What is a good first food to start my 6-month-old on? He's exclusively breastfed so far. Strong family history of severe food allergies (anaphylaxis).
Slow introduction: There are many recommendations regarding first foods. Rice cereal ( major brand ) mixed with breastmilk, and then introduction of one type of baby food every 3-4 days will allow you to closely observe for any possible reactions. Reactions to watch for at this age include very subtle changes in behavior, feeding, rash and breathing difficulty. If any of these occur, an ED visit is recommended. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
