If you notice any swelling of the lips, eyes or face, hives or welts, vomiting or any change in your baby’s well-being (becoming very unsettled soon after giving a new food), your baby could be having an allergic reaction, so you should stop feeding your baby that food and seek medical advice.
If there are any symptoms of anaphylaxis (difficult/noisy breathing, pale and floppy, swollen tongue) call an ambulance immediately.
Information about the signs and symptoms of mild to moderate and severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) is on the ASCIA website.
