Weaning - Eggs

For some reason I'd always put off giving Paige eggs, whether hard boiled or scrambled. That was until last Monday and boy do I regret giving them her now!!

Everything was fine. She was loving her hard boiled egg for lunch.





After about 20 minutes I noticed a rash around her mouth. This started to fade after an hour or so but came back as a very itchy rash all over her body. It was mostly on her belly and around her neck. She also had bright red ears and eyebrows. She went off her milk and was later sick twice. She was allergic!

I took her to the doctors just to make sure and they confirmed that it did look like a reaction. It is quite a common reaction in babies/small children and she could grow out of it by the time she is 5 but we will have to see.

As far as I know she is fine with foods that contain egg... I checked some of her baby food and sure enough some does have egg in it. She has eaten that and was fine. So for now we will stay away from boiled or scrambled eggs.

Does your child have an allergy to eggs? I'd love to know more details.

Thank for reading,

Nicola Xx
