Yesterday I gave my 4mo some 'Baby O - Pumpkin, carrot Apple and mango' purée. I noticed immediately after that she was red under the eyes. I thought perhaps an allergy, but she was fine so I didn't think anything more of it. I gave her the leftovers again, and she's red under the eyes again. Has anyone else ever had this happen? I think of anything it would be the mango.

Allergic to baby food?

Could be an allergy. What other foods has she had before?
If you're worried about allergies, it would be best to introduce one food at a time instead of 4 at once. Maybe start on the pumpkin and work up from there?

I find my LO reacts to baby food that has added vitamin C - it really makes his eczema bad.. Rafferty's is great

You can help to rule out good allergies by trying just one type of fruit or veg at a time and also try making some yourself so you can rule out any additives and preservatives that may be found in some processed store bought varieties.

I would only being giving single foods at such a young age.
Not to be judgy, but fresh food is always better. Even the 'organic' and natural' baby foods can have preservatives in them. This could be whats giving her a reaction. Raftertys is the better of the store brands if you prefer that though.

Is there a reason your starting solids so early ? If not I would wait a bit longer as maybe his system is just not ready yet - as pp said fresh is better if you can do it as even organic baby pouches are cooked with high heat for preservation so will lose a lot of nutrients

My child has severe food allergies.
I would be holding off food until closer to 6 months unless bub is truly needing it.
No packet food at all. All fresh and introduce one new food every three days to determine any allergies or reactions.
A food diary is also helpful.

My son has a cow's milk allergy and we were told by the paediatric allergist to introduce solids when he was 4.5 months slowly with one food at a time and watch for any reaction.
Now you have seen a reaction to something I would make each of those foods and give it separately over a few days. Hope you get to the bottom of it soon.
