Hi. I mostly lurk/post on my birth month board but had some questions that I was hoping you ladies can help with. Some back history - DD was diagnosed with MSPI at 1 month (DS had as well) and we have been doing great continuing to EBF through modified diet. She has always been tall and skinny (75-90% on height and 25% on weight). Well at her 6 month appointment she had only gained 1 lb since three month and dropped to 10% curve. Pedi was mildly concerned but just wanted us to ramp up solids (we had done rice cereal twice prior to this appointment). Friday morning we did rice cereal again and she vomited it back up and developed a rash all over back and chest. After she was done she was her normal happy self and never developed any other "sick symptoms". She was fine all day Saturday and the rash was gone yesterday morning so we tried the cereal again yesterday and same thing - vomit and rash. Dr Google tells me rice allergy can be common in babies so I am figuring that is what it is and to stop rice and move on. That's where my questions come in:
1) Do we try oatmeal next or move straight to veggies? Is she anymore likely to have issues with oatmeal if rice is bothering her?
2) Is any of this indicative of food allergies being an issue down the road or are these (milk, soy, rice) just common in babies and easily outgrown. Food allergies do not run in the family and DS never had an issue outside of MSPI.
