    Default Sweet potatoes

    I posted earlier about my daughter reacting to sweet potatoes (homemade). When I mentioned it to our doctor she said it sounded more like a bug and to wait and offer it to her again when it seemed that she wasn't sick. Well the other day I offered her half a jar of it mixed with a bit of cereal and set her up in her exersaucer. She spit up a little bit but not nearly as bad as the first time (3x). The next day however she had horrible BMs that just ate at her bottom. She also had a red ring around her anus. Isn't that a sign of food allergies? I've decided to hold off a while yet for sweet potatoes but was wondering if winter squash would have the same affect?

    I know that we get fast poops off sweet potatoes with an allergic reaction. No squash reaction so far. I honestly did not know that squash and potatoes were related.

    I'm not sure that they are. That's why I'm asking. :LOL: I don't see how they could be though.

    K so nevermind my post :LOL:

    But does the red ring have anything to do with allergies?
