Hilaria Baldwin sought medical attention for son Eduardo after allergic reaction: ‘It was one of those horrible moments a parent dreads’
Hilaria Baldwin was forced to seek medical attention for her eight-month-old son Eduardo after the baby had an allergic reaction.
Baldwin, 37, shared details of the health scare on her Instagram account on Saturday, where she posted a photo of herself wearing a sweatshirt stained with Eduardo’s dry vomit as she held him in her arms.
Fortunately Eduardo was feeling better by the time the photo was taken, but memories of the incident had clearly shaken Hilaria.

‘We had a scary experience where Edu had an allergic reaction,’ Baldwin began in the caption. ‘I don’t know to what yet, but it was one of those horrible moments a parent dreads.
‘My kids don’t have allergies, so this was a first. Doesn’t matter how many kids you have, there are always moments that shake us, as there is no way we can prepare. This was after he was better, the vomit on my clothes had dried, and my friend sent a pic to Alec (who is away working) to let him know it was going to be ok.
‘I’m grateful to you, doctors and nurses and other healthcare professionals. I won’t mention your names here, but you know who you are, and I hope how much my heart is connected to your care and kindness.
‘I was told that expediency in this situation is key..don’t wait to see if it gets better. If you find yourself in this situation—just go and reach for help. i love you my baby boy… mama loves you so.’
