My son was a c-section baby and also has seasonal allergies.
Remember risk does not equal guarantee.
I do what works and when it stops working, then I do something else.

me, herding 5 critters a cat and a dog. DS 11/01, DS 10/04, DD 2/06, DS 5/07 and DD 9/10
DS 1 selectively vaxed has asthma.
DS 2 even more selectively vaxedhas no allergies asthma or excema.
DS 3 unvaxed has seasonal asthma, excema, and is allergic to soy, corn, peanuts, cow dairy, and gluten.
DS 3 was born VERY rapidly (read; less than 30 seconds in the birth canal) I have wondered if perhaps his gut was not properly colonized as a result.

DH and I were both vaginal, unmedicated births with allergies and eczema.
We can trace a similar history to our grandparents... in our family it seems to have a strong hereditary component.
i have allergies and food sensitivities, and was a vaginal birth. my dad is the same way. seems to me there's more of a connection to heredity than the manner of birth in things like this.
I was a "bum-in-the-canal-three-weeks-overdue-c-section" delivery, and have both asthma and allergies, but as others in my family were not of the same delivery and have the same issue, I wouldn't jump to that conclusion.
My c/s baby had one set of vaxes and was my easiest baby. He only had problems w/ milk, soy, and egg.
Evan and Ilana were my VBAC babies, no vaxes, and were intolerant to just about everything, well, Evan was. I did the TED w/ him. They both had milk, soy, egg, wheat issues and Evan had way more. They both have had seasonal allergies as well, Evan has outgrown his, but Ilana still has some issues w/ hers.
