    Question Does a c-section give your child allergies?

    I came across this article earlier today about a study done about linking childbirth to allergies in kids. It was found that children born of a c-section are 5 times more likely to develop allergies than babies born naturally.

    Have a read - http://www.sciencecodex.com/study_ba...lergies-107436

    We're certainly not saying that one form of childbirth is better than the other - everyone's circumstances are different. We are, however, curious to know if the findings of this study ring true for mums on Bubhub.

    So, without starting anything contentious or striking up some big debate, we want to know: how were your children birthed and do they have allergies?

    None of my kids have any types of allergies of any kind.

    So for my...it doesnt hold true!

    Default Does a c-section give your child allergies?

    Both my DDs birthed naturally. Both allergic to all dairy products and eggs. Nothing to do with c/s IMO.

    I think it makes sense as there's bacteria in the vaginal fluid that is supposed to be somewhat beneficial for babies... a c-sec baby isn't exposed.

    However, my c-sec delivered baby (now 7.5-year-old) has no known allergies. Nor do I, c-sec delivered nearly 27 years ago.
