My son is 6 months and i've been feeding him rice cereal for a week and a half and he loves it. So I decided to try and introduce oatmeal this morning. He ate the whole amount that i gave him (2 tablespoon mixed with similac formula and water). And that was around 8:30 am and at around 2 pm he had a major rash all over his face and body! He doesn't seem bothered by it but I'm sure its a allergic reaction to the oatmeal. Have any of your babies experienced this?
I think I will cut out oatmeal for now and wait till the allergic reaction goes away and just start back on rice cereal. I was going to start introducing him to veggies next week but I'm so scared now! lol. I scared about what other foods he will react to badly. Yikes. I guess this is all part of it.
Would love to hear your stories. and hoping to find comfort and learn from you guys.
