Does anyone know whether specific food allergies tend to run in families? I have a 4-month-old daughter, and I'll be introducing solids in a few months. One of the foods suggested to me as a good first food is bananas, but I'm allergic to them (they can send me into anaphylactic (sp?) shock.) Should I be worried about DD having the same allergy? Bananas are so good for you. I'd hate for her to miss out on them, too. Oh, and I'm also allergic to underripe mango and all forms of melon, so there's a lot that she could be allergic to if these allergies are inherited.
