I have lots of questions for you all today, so here goes --
DD is definately showing signs of being ready for solids. It's been going on a few weeks, so I don't think its a stage. She is nursing all the time, grabbing food from us (or trying!), and last night at dinner basically "shouted" at us the whole time in this really peeved sort of way. One time she got hold of some food off my plate and she had it to her mouth before I knew it (had to do the great fishing expedition to get it out!). So, I think I'm going to have to figure out something to give her. I've poured over the allergy scale lists and several things posted in the allergy boards about introducing solids to an allergic infant. I'm trying to decide between squash, green peas, and carrots - any advice on the choice? How big a deal is the nitrate thing for carrots? Some stuff I read makes it sound dire and other thing dismiss it completely. Also, what age is right for introducing bone broths?
Next set of questions - I'd like to try to up my supply to help with this issue, too. What can I do that is SCD legal? I'm not very astute in tealand, but all the ones I've seen premixed have things that aren't SCD legal. Obviously oatmeal is out -- any other foods known for helping out?
For those of you battling eczema - what age did it start with your kiddos?
As always, many, many thanks!
Fenugreek tea is supposed to be good for boosting milk supply--if there isn't a tea that is SCD legal you can buy bulk fenugreek and make a tea with it.
My DD's eczema started at about 2.5 months of age, although it took me another couple of months to figure out what it was.
