    Hi,
    I have two boys with food allergies. One of them did not show symptoms until he ate the foods (he didn't spit up, no poop problems,etc even with me eating the foods he was allergic to while...
  2. Re: Very Unusual Food Allergy..to sweet potato!?!?!

    My boys both have food allergies but not to sweet potato. I know it is possible though as I have also heard accounts of it on message boards. One of my boys had the same sort of reaction to rice...

    Re: doesn't like rice cereal?

    Yes, you can find it next to the rice cereal in the baby food section. I think we always used Gerber. I think you could probably use regular oatmeal after a while when baby doesn't need foods to be...

    Re: Too much iron? TMI

    Did you give the carrots, applesauce and vitamins on the same day? If so, you might want to take them all out of her diet, wait a couple of days, and then add them in one at a time (wait a couple of...

    Re: doesn't like rice cereal?

    Yes! This happened to us with my second son! He had it for a few weeks probably and then, all of a sudden, couldn't tolerate it anymore. We took it out of his diet and no vomiting. We did oatmeal...

    Re: What to do?

    Hi Naomi,
    It is so frustrating when you go through the work of pumping and get so little! 6-9 ounces sounds pretty good but I can see why you would be concerned with just 3 since you need enough...

    Re: how did you do it...the dreadful sippy cup

    Maybe he just associates the bottle/milk with comfort and security(?)
    Neither of my boys would take bottles (which was a problem of its own!) so I don't have personal experience but I used to work...

    Re: Started solids at 5 mo. and red rash

    Hi,
    First of all, you haven't "ruined" anything! We moms put too much pressure on ourselves and tend to blame ourselves for everything! Some things are not in your control whether you like it or...

    Re: HELP! Rash all over

    This post resonated with me because my son has multiple food allergies and we found out in a similar situation. He had anaphylaxis to egg so we went right to the ER, had allergy testing the...

    Re: how long should i wait?

    How old is she? I think the guideline is to hold off on fruits/veggies until 6 months, especially if there is a history of allergies in the family. If she's 6 months or older, you could probably...

    Re: Stools after solids...

    I had the same thing happen after giving my son a banana when he was about the same age! It looked disgusting and I, too, suspected that it was blood. I didn't give him banana for a few days and it...

    Re: Meats

    Hi,
    We introduced meats at around 7-8 months. By ten months we were doing shredded meats like chicken or turkey and ground beef.

    HTH!

    Re: Wheat?

    My DS#1 is allergic to wheat (which we found out after he had been eating Cheerios starting at 8 months). We do a lot of rice chex and rice cakes for snacks. He also can eat Kix, Trix, and other...

    Re: Expressed milk for cereal

    Hi,
    Your question brought me back to when I was going through the same thing with my first child. I, too, did not want to touch formula and felt as though I should be mixing something other than...

    Hi,

    Re: Starting Solids?

    Hi,
    I believe the recommendation is 6 months and definitely no earlier than 4 months. I started my first boy with rice cereal at 4 months for a month and then started other things at 5 months. My...

    Hi,
    As a mom to a child with multiple food allergies, I would say that you are right to be cautious! While bananas aren't one of the most common food allergens, it is possible to be allergic to...

    Re: feeding timeline?

    Hi,
    What kinds of baby foods are you feeding him? I know that when you first start with solids it seems like baby isn't really even eating that much but it is all about practice. As he gets more...
