We've been introducing rice cereal to our 6 month old daughter to start and she's had a strange gastric reaction both times of bloating, gas and discomfort with some vomiting. Our oldest had food allergies,I've got food allergies and my husband has a family history of them so I know what they usually look like but I can't figure out what in this cereal could be the problem. It's the Beechnut cereal,it only has two ingredients: ground rice and sunflower lecithin. I know that sunflower seeds can be an allergen mostly because DH's cousin has one but nuts and seeds allergies tend to look more severe.
I know they make other kinds of cereals including wheat,do you think it could be a cross contamination issue? Because I've seen this panel of symptoms more with those kind of allergies and it's a very common allergy in my husband's family.
