can allergies be past on to off spring?
My husband has a few things he is allergic to and I was wondering if it would be possible if the baby would be allergic to the same thing. I'm a first time mom and I don't want anything bad to happen to my child.

I believe that genetics increase the likelihood of some allergies, but dont guarantee that it will be passed on. Peanut allergies, for example, are more common in children if one of the parents have that allergy.

Ya allergies can be passed in the genes, but there is no guarantee that your baby will get your husbands allergies
