Allergic reaction, cold, or teething?
I'm not sure it this is the proper forum for this thread or not, hopefully I'll get some helpful feedback regardless.
I started Brody (6.5mo) on rice cereal on Sunday (today's Tuesday). He has a dairy and soy allergy, and this was the only kind that I found doesn't contain either ingredient (it's Beech Nut). I only gave him about 4 or 5 of his baby spoonfulls, because I'm paranoid and wouldn't know how he'd react to it. He loved it, and didn't seem to have any adverse reactions, other than smellier gas than usual , but I know that's normal. I didn't give it to him yesterday since his reactions to dairy or soy have all been GI related (mucousy poops), and sometimes it takes a day or two for me to see if he's having a reaction. I've been noticing little bits of mucous in his poops yesterday and today which of course has me worried. However, he also came down with a cold yesterday, and is also teething so I'm not sure if the mucous is related to the cold, teething, or the cereal. I've read and re-read the ingredients label, so I'm SURE that there's not any soy or dairy to speak of, however it doesn't state on the package that it is or isn't manufactured on equiptment that also processes stuff WITH dairy and soy, so I'm hoping this isn't the case...
