In Reply We appreciate the feedback and responses to our publication titled “Association Between Use of Multiple Classes of Antibiotic in Infancy and Allergic Disease in Childhood1” and have provided responses herein. We agree that both breastfeeding and obesity are important factors to consider when evaluating the development of allergic disease in children. Unfortunately, we had no access to data regarding breastfeeding status and this remains a limitation of our study.
