Mt ds is 20 weeks and has just been diagnosed with mild eczema - some small patches on his arms and legs - nowhere near as severe as some friends' babies with eczema I have seen, but I know it could flare up and change.

Both me and my dh had eczema as children and we both suffer from hayfever, although for me this did not start until I was about 16. With this in mind, is there anything we need to bear in mind when weaning - we are planning on waiting until 6m, but do we need to introduce foods one at a time etc?

My friend found her little boy had quite strong outbreaks of excema ever time she gave him strawberries, maybe a one to try and avoid?

I would introduce one at a time and if no reaction try something else, I am just starting milk free weaning and came on here for some advice , I have started with baby rice and ready brek which he seems fine with,also tried fruity muesli and he's fine with that so now fir some soya yoghurts next, good luck xx
