Can an un-born baby have food allergies.?
Was looking at a jar of peanut butter today and wondered if a pregnant woman ate peanuts and the baby had a nut allergy, what would happen?
Because some people have bad nut allergies that can kill them.


the baby only gets the nutrients not the actual food.

That's a good question....I bet they can. That might explain some of the times there are miscarriages that can't be explained otherwise.

Like people have said if a pregnant woman eats a lot of peanuts then the baby might have a higher risk of a peanut allergy. It wouldn't affect the baby while it was in the womb but it would when the baby was born. My brother was born with eczema and some of the creams used for that had peanut oils in them, he has a life threatening peanut allergy and scientists have found a link between the creams and the allergy. So basically a high exposure to something like peanuts when the child is very vulnerable could cause a higher risk of nut allergy but it wouldn't kill the baby while it was in the womb.

Unborn babies don't eat food. They get nutrients directly from the umbilical cord in the womb. Food allergies will not present until the baby actually eats the food.

There have been studies recently that suggest the fetus is sensitized in utero if the mother eats peanuts while pregnant, and will therefore develop an allergy to them.
It is unlikely to have an allergic reaction to it while in the womb, because antibodies have to first form against a food after the birth, and after the food is eaten by the baby.
Peanut allergies are life threatening to those who suffer from anaphylaxis. That's when you have such a severe allergy to something, your airways swell to the point you cannot get air, and is fatal if you don't receive proper emergency medical attention.
You are very wise to ask this question.
My one-year-old son has severe food allergies, along with anaphylaxis. He IS one of the children being born these days with life threatening peanut allergy. I cannot tell you how many peanut butter sandwiches I ate while I was pregnant with him, along with a glass of milk. I thought I was eating healthy.
He also suffers anaphylaxis from wheat. He has an egg allergy, and a milk allergy.
If I knew then one iota of what I know now from reading every thread of information I can get my hands on to educate myself and other family members about his condition...I would have NEVER taken the first bite!
Theoretically, yes they can develop an allergy, but not have a life threatening reaction in the womb, because the mother is the life force at that time.
Babies born with peanut allergies has doubled (yes doubled) in the past five years, and no one knows why. I will always believe this was the case in my baby's situation.
I highly recommend to any pregnant mother avoid eating peanuts in any form or fashion. I don't wish living in this fearful little box my family has been put into on any innocent child. Just simply don't do it. Better to be on the side of caution than not to.
