Do any of your babies have allergies to food? I don't know what to look for. I know the dramatic symptoms of airway constriction etc but I don't know any of the minor ones. Blake gets rashes occasionally from colognes from her daddy hugging her but they go away within a few minutes so I am never too concerned I just keep  an eye on it.

Blake does have an issue with formula. :( She has to be on soy formula because milk based formula gives her awful gas and diarrhea.

I give Blake lots of snacks, mum mums, gerber crunchies, puffs, yogurt melts, etc. She never seems to have an issue with them though. Even the ones that have a little bit of milk in them...she doesn't have a problem so far...but I was just interested to know what you guys have experienced.

Brock has very sensitive skin, and I have asked about allergies as well.  One of his cheeks is always red.  The ped. said that one sign of allergies is a rash around the mouth...not just redness, but a splotchy, red rash.  I'm assuming it looks darker.  
We haven't had any issues with allergies to foods.

Not yet... and hopefully never!   haha... we give her pieces of cheese (which is obviously dairy) and she is fine.  I have HORRIBLE year round allergies and would get hives as a kid.  Oddly enough, I was allergic to melon when I was a kid.  Watermelon, cantaloupe, etc.  I grew out of the allergy, but it wasn't fun going to a picnic and not eating watermelon.  I am hoping she doesn't have bad allergies like I do or have any food allergies either :)

I havent really noticed anythin food wise either thank goodness.... I think we just introduce new things every couple days and look for signs....

Noah has ALOT of problems with his formula, or I should say he did... he is on Alimentum (allergic to soy and cows milk) - and I am hoping he grows out of that.... I have given him a bit of pudding or yogurt and he seems to do just fine, no allergic reactions so far but he is being given SMALL amounts....

Oh man! I have HORRIBLE year round allergies and I wouldnt with that on anyone either!
