DD, 16mths, used to alsways have banana and no problem however recently it has given her a terrible almost burn when she has filled her nappy after eating it. Its so bad she cries when I put her o the changing mat as she knows I will be opening her nappy.
So I had stopped giving her banana, yesterday she had a couple of tastes of a banana ice-cream and she has a bad nappy again.
Is this a common thing with banana, does this link into any allergies, or anything I should be aware of?
i can't eat bananas because they make the roof of my mouth and the back of my nose itch.I've never been diagnosed as allergic to anything though as i don't think they did that in the 70's! it's pretty much the only thing (other than mosquito bites) that i react to
Do not give her anything with banana for 1 week. Then give her a small bit and see if she reacts. It it does happen again she will have to avoid bananas, and possibly worth having her allergy tested via your GP.
No not difficult just to keep banana away yes difficult when she's allergic to dairy soya wheat egg tomato plum melon etc.. We need to keep an eye on her weight and would've been useful to be able to give banana but hey.
Thank you for the link, readbetweenthelines. Latex is the one to really be concerned about here, especially if you need an operation or procedure, or have dental work done. The latex allergy can really complicate recovery because contact with latex gloves, etc can cause severe inflammation. I always thought banana, avocado cantaloupe (but not so much honeydew) and latex allergy went together.
As far as starches go, how about potatoes, rice, corn?
