Hilaria Baldwin was forced to see a doctor 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 it in his arms.
Fortunately, Eduardo was feeling better by the time the photo was taken, but the 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 what yet, but it was one of those horrible moments that a parent dreads.
“My kids don’t have allergies, so this was a first. No matter how many kids you have, there are always times that shake us up because we can’t prepare. It was after he got better, the vomit on my clothes had dried, and my friend sent Alec (who works on the go) a photo to let him know everything would be fine.
“I am grateful to you, doctors, nurses and other health professionals. I won’t mention your names here, but you know who you are and I hope how much my heart is attached to your care and kindness.
“I’ve been told that opportunity in this situation is key… don’t wait to see if it gets better. If you find yourself in this situation, just go get help. I love you my little boy… mom loves you so much.
