My baby is 8 months old, she is a fussy eater and likes sweet things only.. she loves finger food and hate nearly all pureed baby foods. i have started her on cerelac (wheat) when she was around 7.5 months. she used to itch her eyes before going to sleep but now i am observing her waking up after she has fallen asleep by the itchiness of the eyes and nose. could that be a sign of allergy?
because she is such a fussy eater, cerelac used to do the job and she would just have at least 2 tablespoons per meal.
what is your advice?
maybe try an equivalent that is rice .. rice is lower on the allergin list than wheat and barley and see if she still rubs the eyes? Do they look red and/or puffy? I'm a mom to children who have had or have severe allergies and my son had issues at 8mos old from barley and it went away on rice (he had dermatitis).
