Good morning! (please forgive any typos....i'm holding babe and typing other-handed)
My son is 6months old. And due to trauma at birth, has a feeding tube. AND, due to low-supply, he has up til now been on a mix of breastmilk and goat-milk formula. He was on Similac as a calorie-booster at the hospital, but it terribly allergic.
So, our OT is ready for baby to start on food. We are not...AND, I would hold my grown EXCEPT that through some trial and error, we have discovered that my breastmilk is what is causing my son HORRIBLE PAINFUL gas. just something aweful.
On the goatmilk alone, he is more content, does not cry in the car, has regular poops...it's amazing the difference when we take him off my bm. BOO HOO!
THat leads us to...food. Our Ped has cleared him to start eating any all foods as long as they are purred, of course. SInce we had planned to have him on BM until his was at least 12-18 months, we're at a loss as to what to give him.
My son will still be on goat milk through his tube, and the "people food" will probalby be only at one or two feedings to start...not his only source of nutrition.
Where do we start? We are currently cow-milk free in our home and on low-gluten. I know we should be gluten-FREE, but we're not there yet.
