Allergies - Food
My 8month old baby suffers from allergies to pollen/grass. She has had 3 ear infections and the last one she needed antibiotics for.
Is it a good idea to keep her off milk and wheat if she is suffering from environmental allergies?

Dear Lisa
If your baby is only allergic to pollen and grass, then there is no reason to cut out milk. Did she test negative to milk and wheat allergy? If so, there is no reason to avoid such foods.
