    Default Pregnancy food aversions = allergies in the baby???

    Ive gone so majorly off dairy this pregnancy, and I wondered if there was any connection to dairy allergy in the baby?
    Anyone have any thoughts or experiences???

    I can not stomach cows milk (I hate the taste) when I was pregnant I craved iced chocolate every day!!!

    DD was born with a very bad cows milk allergy. So I doubt there is truth to that.

    I doubt it. I love peanut butter and ate it throughout pregnancy and my DS has a peanut allergy

    I have really bad asthma and allergies in my family history and I was cry told not to eat peanuts while pregnant incase I made DD allergic. I honestly don't know if there is any truth to it (I highly doubt there is).

    Wow I just read that and thought you may have thought I was saying its your fault about his peanut allergy. I'm so sorry if my post came across like that, it wasn't my intention. Like I said I doubt there is any truth to it.

    Hi MummyJ,
    Avoiding particular foods during pregnancy doesn't help with preventing allergies so I would think that your current food aversion is unlikely to be related to food allergy in your baby.

    I hope this is helpful.

    I think its only a coincidence, but I couldn't stomach any dairy during my first pregnancy, dd is allergic to lactose, cows milk protein and sometimes she is sick like she's allergic to something else that I can't put my finger on.

    But I think its coincidence.
