When you are introducing your baby to solid food, you don't yet know what he or she will be allergic to.The “4 Day Wait Rule” is an an easy way to check for food allergies or sensitivities. Remember that in addition to possible allergic reactions, foods can also cause digestive troubles like tummy pains, painful gas or even poop troubles. For example, introduce baby to apple on Sunday and then wait until Thursday to introduce another food.If the child is allergic, the reaction would materialize in those four days, maybe through a rash or swelling. If nothing happens, then that food is safe and you can introduce a new one.
