Dr. Leah Alexander, a pediatrics specialist in Fair Lawn, N.J., who has been practicing for 20 years, recommends parents wait until their baby turns at least nine months old to introduce the sour fruit as part of a balanced diet.
“In clinical practice, I typically recommend introducing citrus foods (lemons, limes, oranges, tomatoes) at the 9-month-old well visit,” she said in a piece for Mom Loves Best. “At this point, most infants have been consuming cereals, other fruits, most vegetables, and perhaps meat or legumes.”
“I always recommend that my parents keep Children’s Benadryl at home once new foods are being introduced to their infant,” she said. “Food reactions are not subtle. They are usually associated with very obvious hives (a welt-like rash) that changes positions on the body, mouth and/or eye swelling, vomiting, and possible difficulty breathing.”
“Anything more than just hives warrants contacting a medical professional and, possibly, an emergency room visit,” she added. “After such an episode, there should be a discussion about keeping emergency rescue injectable treatment in the home.”
