week 2 - disaster strikes...
a horrible, horrible day.
i boldly decided to give charlotte baby rice mixed with formula milk (she was handed a spoonful and licked it off the spoon). she seemed to like it, but then smacked the spoon into the side of her head. almost immediately, a red rash came up around her mouth and down the side of her face. it was like nasty nettle rash, and just got worse and worse. we wiped her hands and face and headed straight to our doctors surgery. the doctor saw her and gave us some antihistamine as this was apparently a typical allergic reaction. only problem was now working out what caused it.
