My lo is 7 months. I've been trying solid since he was 6 months. I started with rice cereal sweetened with milk. i didn't know it was sweetened with milk till i read the label carefully. i then mixed it with non sweetened one. then i added pureed carrot. a few days later he developed rash under his chin. he also started vomitting after i added carrot. at first i thought he was allergic to the milk in the rice cereal. so i stopped giving him the sweetened cereal. the rash and vomitting persisted. so i stopped solid a few days and reintroduced after the rash and vomitting stopped. i gave him only the non sweetened rice cereal and the rash returned but not the vomitting.
my question is could he be allergic to rice cereal and carrot? it is supposed to be the least allergic food. what should i offer him the next time? i gave him rice cereal based on the advice of my pd. should i try giving him plain porridge?
