That first baby sneeze is the cutest, right? It's quite funny to see their little faces get all screwed up and that little "Achoo!" is so tiny. But what happens if those sneezes turn into something bigger? For instance, what is the difference between a sneeze that points to a baby who may be struggling with allergies, and when is a sneeze just a sneeze? Turns out there are signs your baby has seasonal allergies and they might not always be as obvious as you think.
Researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under age 18. That’s 1 in 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom, according to Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE). But experts say the good news is that it's uncommon for babies to suffer from allergies.
Still, you'll want to keep these pointers in mind as your little one grows. Whether you spot a funky rash on your baby's leg or you can't help but notice your little one sneezes each time they hang out with your cat, it's important to be able to decipher the difference between a sniffle and seasonal allergies. Here's the inside scoop.
