My baby has acid reflux and cows milk intolerance. We d started weaning him early at 5 months with literally zero help from dr / health visitor etc. I've tried a couple of times pureed carrots with sweet potatoe , carrot & turnip etc and on occasion he cries inconsolably and the only common thing I've come to is it's after carrots each time. Sweet potato or white potatoe he seems fine on. But as he has reflux and cma is really difficult to know if it's not his reflux kicking off or if he's just eaten too mum and hot stomach ache. Anyone else have experience like this?
No I know, annoying 🙄 I asked the dr and health visitor both to refer us and neither seem to want to help. I'm going to try and steer clear of carrots as you say.. I did give him puréed carrot turnip and white potato today though .. would that combination on a while be too much fibre dya think? Cz he normally has all his mash potatoes , white or sweet?
Hi. I had a baby with serious reflux and CMPI and chose to wait until 6 months to wean. As your HV has provided you with no help or guidance I would suggest you do the same. The reason they can advise it is to start adding weightier food to their diet which is less likely to be brought back up. If you are ok with baby’s current diet then it may be better to wait.
As for a referral to the dietitian to talk through introducing potentially problematic foods.
Perfectly fine.. he had a nap yesterday after crying in pain but woke up ok-ish, still a little grizzley. I stuck to just sweet potato today. Is there anything wrong with giving him 3 things all mashed down like I did for babies so little? Other than not knowing which is it he's not taken to.. pureeing 3veg together for him wouldn't cause anything would it?? Maybe he just ate too much! Confused. He was really really crying though and he's not even a cryer xx
