I started to wean my little one last week and I thought he was clearly ready. He loved the baby rice. Just added in pear and the last two nights he has screamed the house down before bed and dh says he has some little spots on his tummy (no worries it is not meningitis!).
Rubbing his tummy and cycling his legs clearly helps, but he has also not had a poo today (normally 1 a day).
Is this just his system getting used to it or is he allergic to pear?
My dd is allergic to peanuts. When we went to the hospital the doctor told us that all allergic reactions were immediate. Also, for peanuts, I don't know if it is the same for other things, the first reaction you would get would be at the place the food had touched, so on your baby's lips I imagine.
So it doesn't sound like an allergic reaction to me.
For what it's worth, pear (along with rice) is one of the foods with very littel history of causing allergic reactions in people. One of the reasons pears and rice are often recommended as first foods.
