We stopped feeding DS the rice cereal. I read the reason for rice cereal is that it contains high iron which babies need after 6 months. They have enough of iron stored being in the womb until 6 months. He poo has been partly solid form but not dry (sticky paste). I will have to ask the CHN to make sure this is normal with the start of solid. I tried to feed him carrot puree today. He is so fussy with the milk and quite happy with the solid! Of course, started crying when he had enough.
DS didn't really sleep last night. I don't know what's up. Perhaps the gas. He was quite gassy again this morning. We are doing something a bit stupid at the moment. To prevent him getting constipation, we mix the current formula with the HA again. Because HA formula seems to give him runny poo. Of course, any change in formula will upset his stomach. I thought baby gut would be more mature by now and can handle the change better. Obviously not. It doesn't seem to have any effect on the poo. It still has solid part. Anyway, back to using the lactose free only. We don't know if we should try the allerpro formula. I feel like if we don't try, we don't know if DS has cow milk allergy. We have a month to give that a go and switch to something else. I dont want to do any experiment when we are about to travel. If we try allerpro, it would be stinky and watery poo again. It will make the reflux worse for sure. Sigh.....i didn't get any sleep last night at all.
And talking about weaning DS off pacifier. I think it will be VERY dificult in our case. We shut him up so much with that. He depends on it now. This afternoon while i was driving, he wanted to sleep, did his usual fussing before sleeping. Pacifier came off and he kept crying until i found a convenient place to pull over. Put in the pacifier and he fell asleep instantly. Grr....
Also, what's up with him only falls asleep with the comforter covers his face!? This is new!
