A study out of Finland has found that babies conceived just before spring begins may be more likely to develop food allergies.

Researchers studied almost 6,000 children, and found that babies who spent the first trimester in the womb during spring months had an increased chance of developing allergies to foods like eggs and milk. These would be the children born in October and November. Finnish studies showed that children born in these months had more incidences of food allergies than children born at any other time of the year.

Experts believe that fetuses under 11 weeks do not have antibodies to allergens that peak during April and May.
