DP has numerous family members with athsma (both parents, maternal grandparents, both siblings).
Does anyone have any info on what foods to avoid/delay to minimise DD's chance of getting asthma?
Things I have heard and implemented so far are:
- breastfeed for at least 6 months
- no solids before 6 months
- no wheat before 7 months
- no cows milk except in cooking before 12 months
- no dried fruit that has been treated with sulphur
Also I was wondering if since DP's athsma is not food-related (he is however allergic to cats, dust and some pollens), does this mean there's not a lot of point worrying about DD's food?
My doc and MCH nurse have only given me very general info, so I was wondering if anyone here has some more specific advice or can recommend a book or web site.
