Fall/winter babies more prone to food allergies

A recent study found that children born in the fall or wintertime were much more likely to have food allergies. Ainsley was born in late November so she certainly falls into the higher-risk group. She was also born by c-section, which raises the risk that a child will have food allergies. My second daughter, Leighton, was born in the spring and I avoided a c-section that time - she has no food allergies. Can you guess who will try her best not to have another fall/winter c-section baby?

My son was born in June, no c-section here...yet he has multiple food and environmental allergies! I wish I knew why he has allergies. :( My youngest son was born in June as well, no c-section either but jury is still out on whether he'll have allergies as we haven't introduced many of the high allergen foods yet. Guess we'll see.

Just found your site...I'm excited to read more but...
My food allergy daughter is an April baby and no c-section but my non food allergy daughter is Dec and also a non c-section baby....so I guess I'm not the norm.
