disaster part 2

unfortunately, i gave charlotte a piece of cheese in the hope that she's be ok with it. she looked like she was really enjoying it, but the redness started around her mouth so i had to take it away. it looks like she has a dairy allergy.
she also had a piece of roast chicken. she sucked on it for ages making strange faces, but didn't eat any.

We are having similar issues with BB's face but it's tomato and citrus not dairy. and i think maybe egg but not sure! best thing about keeping a blog is you already have a diary of what your little one is eating so you can normally narrow down the culprits!

How did the antihistemine (sp?) do? they've not prescribed us any thing i may go back!

hi hannah,
we were given a bottle of antihistamine liquid medicine. it's supposed to be for 1 year and up, but it's only for emergencies, so hopefully we won't need to use it. we decided not to give her any the day of the allergic reaction as she wasn't showing any obvious signs of distress. she had a bath and a walk instead.
