Q.

bananas

Hi,

At 8 months I tried to give my baby some mashed banana. She vomited it all out after a few hours.

I tried again at 12 months and she again brought it up
She is now 20 months and still cannot stomach the banana.
She was and still is being breastfed, and eats everything else. I just find it such a pity as she really enjoys the banana when I give it to her.

Shall I give up on the banana?

Yes, you should stop giving your little girl bananas as she is allergic to bananas

Hi

Why not try banana and avo mashed together. Try just a little at first and see. I give it to my 8mth old and he loves it.

Just an idea...
