My LO is six months old, and we've slowly been introducing solids. We've started with sweet potatoes (which she loves), then added some applesauce, and pears. At four months, though, we started rice cereal for a bit (Ped's idea, since she was "small, and low on the growth chart") but threw it out when she wouldn't eat it and it made her gassy/constipated. A few weeks later, we tried again with the cereal, she wouldn't take it/started crying everytime we tried. So I put it off, and switched to the sweet potatoes. A week or two ago, I tried the cereal again, and same reaction. Today, after a doctor's appointment, we tried cereal again with her sweet potatoes. She ate it, but not very happily. A couple hours later, she threw up everything she'd eaten. After she calmed down a bit, she nursed, and then thew all that up too.
Needless to say, we won't be pushing the cereal at all from here on out. I'm curious, though, does this sound like a gluten allergy? Do infants even have those? And if so, anyone out there have any advice?
