Last night was a LONG night! Dawson is allergic to milk, so I don't have any until after he goes to bed, since he's still nursing. Well, last night he woke up after I had some ice cream, so he spit up after I fed him! :( Then he was still hungry, so I decided to just feed him baby food. I got out some 3rd foods, a Turkey, Rice and Carrots meal in a jar, and fed him half of that.
Well that didn't work out so good either! He started itching his face, and pushing the spoon away. Then he got a rash around his mouth, and up to his eye where he'd been itching. I also noticed it went down below his chin a little. I cleaned him up and put him down to play. I'd noticed that rash before, but didn't think much of it. I thought it was from the rag, because our city water is really hard.
While cleaning up his food, I heard him cough a couple times, and when he went to breath in again, he was kinda gasping for air. So I held him a while and listened to him. His breathing was fine, it only bothered him when he coughed. He coughed again a little while later and it was a tiny bit better, so I decided to wait and see if it got better. He played happily for about an hour, and was even giggling some, so he didn't seem to be having much trouble. After about 2 hours the rash was totally gone and his breathing was fine. He'd fallen asleep on me, so I just put him to bed.
I looked at the contents of the jar, and there was a lot of stuff in it, I was surprised. Onion powder, skim milk powder, tomatoes, carrots, rice, turkey, turkey gravy and a couple other things. So who knows if it was the turkey or something else, like the onions or tomatoes. I've never heard of turkey causing allergy problems before! I guess I'll have to eliminate some of them. I have some plain turkey in a jar, so I'll start with that. Probably not anytime soon though! Not much else I can do, I'm not about to feed him straight onion powder! haha
I guess I'll be reading the contents before buying baby food from now on!
