If your baby is not feeling well, we strongly recommend that you do not use Ready, Set, Food! until your baby is feeling better. This is because should an allergic reaction occur, it will be easier to identify if your baby is healthy. Most doctors also advise only introducing new foods when your baby is healthy.
If your baby is healthy, Ready, Set, Food! is safe to use, as the protein amounts in our packets are the same as what was used in the landmark clinical trials where no severe reactions occurred. While it's possible to do early allergen introduction on your own, many parents struggle with the proper dosage. Feeding too much can cause your baby to experience an allergic reaction while feeding too little will make the process ineffective. Ready, Set, Food!'s gentle and gradual system is the best way to maximize safety and minimize the risk of an allergic reaction, while also effectively reducing your baby's risk of developing food allergies.
