Strawberries — The Bump
Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

I'm wondering if their acidity is bothering him. TIA!

  • Yup. Sounds like either an allergic reaction or acidity. Your LO will probably outgrow it.

    We used to have really really bad diaper rash with citrus and tomatoes. Now, DD just gets a little redness around her face with tomatoes. She loves them, b
