Apologies in advance for the LONG post!!
I have a 5 mth old DS who is exclusively breastfed.
In preparation for solids I have started trying small bites of baby food, UNTIL, 2 days ago I gave him Rafferty's rice cereal with S26 formula as the mixing agent. I have fed him Farlex rice cereal before but expressed and we had no issues. When I had given him 2-3 tiny bits (literally to tip of his spoon) I noticed his face around his mouth becoming very red then welts began, obviously as soon as I noticed the redness I stopped giving him the food. The only reason I didn't express this time and used the formula is because I am away on holiday and didn't bring my machine with to express.
He began dry retching until he had a massive mucus bubble come out of his mouth and he was struggling to breath and became very drowsy and literally fell asleep in my arms in seconds (Scared the C**P out of me).
Rushed to hospital but breathing was better when we got there and he only had the welts left.
Now I am too scared to feed him anything for fear of this happening again!!!
Anyone with any advice, what should I do, who should I see, how can we determine if he has any other allergies??? I am assuming at the moment that he is allergic to dairy/cows milk protein as that was the only thing that was different.
