    Default Pumpkin intolerance???

    So I have given dd pumpkin a few times now and she has thrown up every time I gave it to her.

    Tonight I gave her a mix of pumpkin, apple and corn and she threw up (loads) and pooped like crazy.

    Guessing I should stop feeding it to her. Is it an intolerance? Or just something she will grow out of?

    What kind of pumpkin did you use? Butternut pumpkin can sometimes cause a reaction but can't remember why sorry.

    Ultimately we can be intolerant or allergic to any food - some are common - wheat/diary and some are less common.

    Pumpkin is one of the 'P' foods that encourage poop - along with peaches, pears, peas & prunes

    Pumpkin is from Cucurbitaceae family which have a higher incidence of allergies (also cucumber, melon, watermelon & zucchini) and pumpkin is also known to cause histamine reactions.

    That being said, Google and Bubhub are not doctors and only a doctor can dx an intolerance or an allergy.

    Seeing bubs is quite young, I'd avoid pumpkin for the time being - at least 6-8 weeks and try a small mouthful again. If she reacts the next time I'd def. see a GP.

    Try sweet potato - much better for bubs anyhow
