Re: Starting BLS
Also, not to pile on, but when we were starting foods with my DS, he often had a reaction to foods that wasn't a true allergy -- his cheeks would get bright red with tomatoes, certain cheeses, cinnamon or other spices, tangerines, I can't remember what else. Once in awhile, it seemed to even make his tongue itch. Mixing too many foods at once would make it difficult to determine what he was reacting too, and then avoid it in the future. Again -- it wasn't that he was allergic, but it was mildly distressing to everyone, and too many ingredients mixed together may confuse the picture.

Feel like we've gotten a strong start
