Today we found out DS has an allergy to apple.
I've never had a more heartbreaking parent moment ever....
DS is 4 months old.
He has been taking purée for the last two weeks, once a day.
He hated rice cereal so we stuck to root vegetables like pumpkin and potato, which he loves.
Today he had apple.
Got a rash, swollen eyes and started to wheeze...
After calling the nurse on call, I took him to the doctor, he had some quartazone? And his symptoms died down. Tomorrow he will be going back to the doctor for further tests..

i understand how you are feeling. my bub is anaphylactic to eggs and thought to be to nuts and msg (even naturally occuring). it is very frightening.

I remember when we discovered my oldest daughter had allergies. I stood in the pantry cupboard and looked at all the things I could no longer eat (was breastfeeding) and I cried and cried and cried. We then ate the most boring bland foods for the next couple of months while I tried to figure out what we could eat that was safe for her and tasty for us. I sucked at it for ages but I got better, and there are so many substitutes available now that make it so much easier.
6 1/2 years on and I couldn't even tell you what it was I cried about in the pantry that day.
It is hard at first, but it gets easier and it becomes second nature to deal with. Recently my daughter told me she loves her special food so much that she never wants to grow out of her allergies.
All the best with your results and it is so hard to digest and deal with at first but please remember it does get easier, it does get better
