What can I feed my 6 month old now that he is allergic to milk, eggs, and peanuts?

My son is teething and wants to eat something but I am not sure what I can give him. My daughter used to love those yogurt drops and teething cookies but both of those have milk. What is out there for babies with severe allergies?

I started my daughter on fresh pureed fruit. Personally I don't think it really matters what order you introduce foods as long as it is one at a time. My son would do a veggie, then a fruit, with my youngest it was just whatever I had on hand to puree for her. You could do avacadoes.

They say not to give him sweet food yet...? Can I introduce fruit already? He's 6mths and just started peas on monday. Now his gums bleed easily. The wash cloth works well, but then he gets bored of that.

Freeze apple sauce in little globs on a plate and let him chew on those. I also had the mesh teether and put the frozen apple sauce in it.

We had a mesh teether. I'm pretty sure I bought it at Target but I know they sell them at Wal Mart too. It's this mesh bag that you put frozen (whatever you want) into and then let the baby chew on it. The mesh bag breaks the food down so small that there's no choking hazzard. It kinda looks like a giant pacifier, but the end that goes in the mouth is the mesh. I used to put frozen peas, apples, banana (banana is messy lol), watermelon, peaches. Pretty much, any fruit or veggie you can think of can go in them. Good luck Momma!



The frozen wash cloth idea worked great too.



ETA: Just make sure you dice whatever you put in, if it's not small already. You want the pieces to be about the size of a pea, maybe a little larger, but not much.
