About this deal

While your baby is getting used to eating food, keep going with your usual milk feeding routine. And remember that cows’ milk isn’t suitable as a drink until your baby turns one year old.

I just wanted to say please please ask to be referred to a pediatric allergist and if there is one at your local hospital then great, but if not then it's definitely worth going straight to the people who are specialists in this. My DD had a bad reaction at 6.5 months to wheat in a baby rusk and we were referred to our local hospital. We were only ever seen by dieticians who were out of their depth with allergies, and more so as DD has multiple allergies. We were with them for about 2 years before I realised that we weren't really getting the best care or advice. It could be teething, as well so it's all a bit difficult for them when they're so young as they're little bodies are actually already going through alot. We got a dietician appointment for about 8 weeks later, so I decided to make up some porridge with adult oats and water, and one with milk, and put a patch on his legs one day. Water looked fine, milk reacted! So we independently introduced grains, and avoided dairy. Definitely keep a diary if you can. It might help you see any patterns plus also a good way of logging everything so that you're armed with info when you get the allergist appt.To begin with, weaning is more about introducing the idea of eating. It’s normal for babies to push food out with their tongue at first as they get used to the sensation and taste of something other than their usual milk. With practice, they will soon get the hang of keeping food in their mouth and swallowing it. i was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience and what course of action did you take to determine what the allergy was? i'm thinking it could be dairy and one of the main ingredients is whey powder and milk powder but the ingredients on the porridge also include corn and rice so obviously we're not sure yet. (no oats and it was gluten free). it's the first time she's ever had anything other than breast milk and banana. i tried her with a small amount of aptamil formula milk a while ago but she spat it out and gagged on it so i abandoned it. she refuses bottles anyway!

Pediatric allergists usually run clinics with a team of specialist nurses and specialist dieticians so you really do get the best possible help. If you live near london there are a few hospitals. If you ring the Allergy UK helpline, they will be able to let you know where your nearest one is. You can then go to the GP and ask to be referred to that specific one. The doctor has to do this if you ask. Yes. We had a very similar reaction to (HiPP?) baby porridge after one go with formula earlier in the year. DD is 5.5mo and have just started weaning her. she has had mashed banana with a bit of breast milk squeezed on to it for about a week and loves it, i thought i'd try her with a baby porridge and someone recommended the Aptamil ones, i thought i try the plain one first. She ate it no problem but started to cough a bit about half way through so i stopped feeding it to her. she then immediately came out in a red rash all over her face with whitish bumps, kind of like hives. she kept coughing and then she started wretching and vomiting trying to get it out of her system so we rushed her straight to the emergency docs who gave her piriton. If you are still unsure when to start weaning, or if your baby was born prematurely, please seek advice from your health visitor or doctor about when to start introducing solid foods. Getting started At this early stage of weaning, there are a few foods that your baby may find more challenging to deal with. These include salt and salty foods such as bacon, added sugar; honey isn’t suitable until 1 year as it may contain bacteria that can produce toxins, leading to infant botulism. Nuts should also be avoided unless they are very finely ground 2. Learn more in our article about foods to avoid during weaning.The GP was useless, and just said why had I left it to 6 months to introduce food, I was starving him. OK, rant over. Try introducing simple tastes, such as pumpkin, carrot and other vegetables, before moving on to more complex meal combinations. Just cook them as you normally would, but without any added sugar or salt, which can be harmful to your baby 2. Foods to avoid
