Man I am so bummed. EVERYTHING we give her has apples in it and I thought they were awesome. (My mom always told me to eat an apple when I needed help... but as I type that i realize why- the SKIN- AGH! Idiot!
Oatmeal is definite no go in this house- poor girl, we've never even gone near rice.
Between working, taking care of J and Genevieve, plus moving into a new house I don't have a lot of time to make baby food (plus no blender/processor right now) so I always go the expensive route and buy Earths Best brand and all (by which I mean most) of the mixed stuff has apples in it. Ugh. Plus I have a good $30 worth of baby food in cabinet right now because of sales etc most of which has apples in the mix. Double Ugh.
I also want to know the answer to your question. Poor Dh is the one who generally has to deal with the crying pooping (and they aren't THAT hard they are smooshy just not as pasty as she would like, she is pretty sensitive) and is usually near tears by the end too. We are working on eliminating the culprits right now but APPLES? gah! I feel like a bad mom now adding to the situation rather than helping eliminate it (pun intended).
