Not sure how many ppl will even see this, as our board seems to have died... but I'm going to post anyway in hopes that you all come back! I miss talking to you ladies.
Have any of you started cereal or solids yet? We started Spencer on rice cereal about a week ago.. and man, is he ever a hungry hungry hippo! He will eat an ENTIRE baby size bowl of it. We tried oat cereal as well, but he had a very bad allergic reaction to it. Eyes swelled, lips swelled and a rash. Not sure if it was the oat, or the wheat in the oat. We are going to start trying some other foods this week. I think today I'm going to try some prunes. With all the rice cereal he is eating I don't want him to get constipated.
We have just started rice cereal here too! Reagan doesn't seem to like it, but she's quickly realized that if she takes a bit she gets a drink of formula afterwards. She's gotten much better about swallowing since the first time I gave it to her. I bought some green beans, and we'll be giving those a try here in the next week or so.
Amanda, that's so scary about Spencer. I'm glad he's okay. We've never had any major allergic reactions here, thank goodness! Lauryn had a reaction to peaches when she was this age, but she eats them now w/no problems. I've never done prunes w/my kiddos. I'm too scared of the diaper after that
