this morning we tried a wheat product for the first time (the disasterous rusk biscuit had been wheat free - oh, the irony!). fingers of bread with the trusty apricot compote on them. what a success! no obvious allergies and she seemed to eat a lot once it went all soggy. the picture shows her trying to give some to the cat - ahhhh, bless. she just had the same again for lunch as i'm going to make sure all is ok before i move on to something else. i am feeling triumphant as she ate loads again. hooray!
we went to sainsbury's to get some rice and soya products to try. i think rice this week then soya next week. one potential allergen at a time. at least wheat seems to be ok. they didn't sell the soya based cheese alternative, so i'll have to go to a health food shop to hunt some down.
on a more icky note, she definitely swallowed a lot more rice cake yesterday than ever before - i saw the evidence today when changing her nappy. mmmmmmmmmm!
