    The only thing that I have heard is that if either you or your partner is allergic to nuts or has hayfever...then you shouldnt eat nuts!

    But thats all Ive heard...sorry I cant be more help!!

    This is the first time I have ever heard that baby can be allergic to something while still inside...

    As for nuts - if you have a family history of nut allergies pregnant women are not reccomended to have so the chances of a baby develping a nut allergy in LATER life can be reduced.

    I wasnt told that babies can be allergic to anything whilst in the womb... have no idea if they can be tho!
    I was just told to take it easy on the most common allergies, eg nuts etc - cant remember why - I think it's because they're more likely to become allergic if you eat too many.

    It's asthma too, not heard it having anything to do with hayfever before (?)

    As far as I know the baby wont be allergic to anything in the womb itself if thats what he meant?

    So my son (3yrs old) had really bad acid reflux and at his last doctor appt with the GI specialist I asked him what I could do to avoid acid reflux in our next child. About 50% of the time acid reflux is a by-product of allergies (which sometimes can be avoided by regulating what is eaten during pregnancy). He said that I should avoid Strawberries, Nuts, Wheat, and limit milk intake. Luckly I am lactose intolerant so I dont drink much milk but Wheat is impossible. Everything contains wheat in it.

    Yeah this made my pregnancy because I was craving peanut butter but was told I couldn't have it because of my asthma and hayfever.
