This issue, "Your 4 month old" goes over starting solids. There is a question, "How will I know if my baby is allergic to a certain food?" The answer, from Dr. Hamburger, professor of pediatrics at Emeritus and former head of the Pediatric Immunology and allergy division at the Univ. of CA at San Diego, is "Food Intolerance, also referred to as a food allergy..."

I sent them an e-mail about this mis-print. I tried to find the article on-line but could not. The website is [url="http://www.verybestbaby.com"]www.verybestbaby.com[/url]

How can someone so supposedly educated on allergies make such an inaccurate statement?

I'm glad you sent them an e-mail. I'm wondering if it was poor editing that ended up getting the doctor misquoted. Just a thought.

I just got an issue of this magazine. The article was about how many calories you have to consume while nursing and what are good foods to eat to achieve that goal...you guessed it, they say 2 tbs. of peanut butter!

I believe that Nestle makes the Carnation baby formula. Am I right? I just recieved a magazine from them (I have a 3 month old). In this magazine they discuss nursing and switching to formula. In a question and answer section they reccomend nursing Mom's stay away from peanuts for kids can develope an allergy through breast milk. I thought it was great to get the warning out.
