that sounds so scary! And hard to know what the reaction was. I sure hope you get some answers so you don't have to worry too much about everything. That's the trouble with giving table foods -- you don't know which food caused a reaction, so in families with food sensitivities (ours is one), it's probably not a great idea. Ironically, I was coming to post that dd had a bad digestive reaction to something this morning, I was just going to post that I decided to back away from solids. She also tends to find dropped foods and eat them, but yesterday I also allowed her to eat some hamburger bun and pizza crust, despite my misgivings about giving grains, especially wheat, so young. Now last night she was up several times crying, and had some diarrhea this morning that caused her to cry. Not as scary as hives but still concerning. Oh, and I eat millet porridge because I likes something warm in the am, and am allergic to eggs and wheat and oatmeal tends to trigger my ee. I have run out of breakfast type foods I can eat other than fruit (and cooking dinner foods just for myself in the am seems too hard). I do eat sausage occasionally, but when dd gets ahold of it, she just keeps ramming it into her mouth until she has a mouth full, then gradually it all falls out,
I wanted also to say that if a baby is not sleeping well at night, there can be food sensitivities (either to something the baby is eating or something the mom's eating, or both). Gas pain can cause waking, but also there are more subtle symptoms that it can cause. Oh, and if you go over to the elimination communication forum, they say that if a baby wakes, latches on for a minute and then goes back to sleep, it can be a sign they needed to go pee and just needed to nurse to relax enough. There's also this article
from Moxie about sleep regressions..
