It’s only natural to worry that your baby could develop an allergy, especially if there’s a history of it in your family. But thankfully, only a small number of babies are affected by allergies and most outgrow the symptoms as they get older.

Whether your baby’s been diagnosed with an allergy or you’re concerned they may have one, this section offers general advice and help with allergy management. Our team of expert mums and qualified healthcare professionals also cover specific topics, such as the difference between intolerance and allergy, dealing with cows’ milk protein allergy (CMPA) and using food labels to help recognise allergens.
