When we started solids with my 7mo old he didn't take well to it and we noticed that every time he was exposed to oatmeal he got
More and more "sick". The first few times just spitting up, which he never does, sneezing a bit too. The last time we did oatmeal cereal about 2 hours later he got very sick and starting throwing up and then dry heaving for a good 45 mins. About 3 weeks went by and after discussing with our Dr. I decided to give him puffs ( as he has become more grabby) after helping him eat about 6-8 puffs we stopped and went about our business. Same as before, 2 hours later he started throwing up...flu like symptoms. Ok...no more oat based products....got it! Next thing we decided to test him for food allergies. The test came back negative across the board....no food allergies. I'm very thankful for this. Our daycare provider tried some baby food today which consisted of pears/oatmeal. Same thing....2 hours after...vomiting violently for 2 hours and dry heaving. The reason I'm posting...has anyone else experienced this?? Am I crazy to be concerned?? Why would he get so sick from oatmeal but have nothing show up on an allergy test?? I'm at a loss and my Dr just keeps telling me he's just a picky eater. Any help/tips is greatly appreciated!!!
