Use hypoallergenic products like vaseline blue seal without perfume, shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, sebamed products e.t.c. The chances of allergic reaction is less with such.

what else can I give my 8months old baby as a beverage since milo is not allowed for now
  • Best Answer
Feed slowly and patiently, and encourage children to eat but do not force them. • Give variety of foods with different food combinations (foods come from at least 4 food groups e.g. cereals/tubers, legumes/nuts, fruits and vegetables, dairy /poultry etc.), tastes and textures. • If a child refuses a food combination (e.g. maize pap and soybean flour), experiment with another food combination (millet pap and groundnut paste) but do not introduce different combinations the same day as to determine dislikes, intolerance and allergy. • Minimize distractions while feeding the child. • Remember that feeding times are period of learning and love – talk to the child during feedings with eye-to-eye contacts.
