Introducing solids to sibling of PA daughter
My daughter is 6 months old and was exclusively breastfed till 1 week ago, now I'm weaning her and trying out rice cereal. i'm trying desperately hard not to be paraparanoid, but everytime she coughs while eating, or gets a little rash, well you all know what I think. It took me a month to gear up and try another formula as she had a bad reaction to Carnation Goodstart and we had a trip to the hospital. This leads me to believe that she has a milk based allergy.
My question is should I keep trying the cereal, switch cereals or just move onto vegetables? Does anyone else assume that if their baby doesn't like something they might have an allergy to that food? I'm already keeping her peanut, milk, egg and fish free for a few years. But I'm so paranoid because of my first child. Thank you for listening.
