Hello All-I read a lot of the posts but don't post much.<br><br>
My ds is 9 1/2 months old, numerous allergies-showed up as eczema as a newborn, mostly BF occasional solid food. 5 Months ago I finally figured out his allergens (after a few more months of trying) and eliminated them all from my diet (his allergens) to clear up his eczema--with sucess <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> . However, this intro to solids is challenging...as I think I just discovered another allergy in the last few weeks, to mangos! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
Here's my question......<br>
After several days of only having breastmilk he ate pears and banana's. The pears were organic baby food and he passed them no problems or concerns. He's had pears before, no problems. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:<br>
With the banana's, I gave him chunks of banana's to eat right from a banana-NOT COOKED or anything. This is the first time I saw such a BM, bright green with little banana colored chucks and a lot of the green stuff.<br>
So anyway, I was wondering if any of you knew why this would happen. He hasn't had this much raw banana (just a little here and there) before and banana's (has had a few organic baby food jars of it) have not yet given him any reactions other than this today. I don't give him much raw foods because of a concern this might affect him. Why would a raw banana do this as opposed to a cooked banana??

Cooked foods are less allergenic than raw foods. THat's why they always recommend giving the cooked version first, then the raw version. Cooking breaks down some of the proteins.

Thanks for the reply wendy1221.<br>
I haven't given ds much raw foods because of knowing cooked food would be better for his little system. So I was testing out more banana after he had it in cooked form and a little in the raw.<br>
Does anyone have detailed information as to why such a reaction in a bm would occur? Or a link to more information. Was probably only about 1/4-1/3 of a banana. I mean it was very bright green, yikes.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br>
