... Thanks for the replies--they made me feel much better! Melanie--let me know if you decide to try the Heinz rice cereal--I was thinking about trying it myself, but I am just really afraid that he'll have a worse reaction, and then I'll regret it. I really am starting to think that it might be the nestle brand, he's been having the Heinz barley for the past 5 days, and no... (15 replies)

... e's not allergic to the cereal, but maybe like it was mentioned before, maybe he's allergic to one of the other ingredients. have you tried a different brand of rice cereal? ... (15 replies)
... rdly any of it, but when he was done I fed him his bottle, which he gobbled up, and proceeded to projectile vomit right afterwards! So I don't know if it was the cereal or the fast eating of his milk that caused this, but I think I'll just give up on the rice cereal for now... ... (15 replies)
... or milk protien. My guess is that your LO is probably reacting to that and not the rice itself. I really don't understand why they put soy in rice cereal, but they do! ... (15 replies)
... I've heard that rice cereal is low on the allergy list, but when it does happen, people are switching their little ones over to oatmeal. You could try that instead. ... (15 replies)
... I think hives are a pretty good indicator of an allergy but I've always been told that rice cereal is the least allergenic. I don't see how mixing it with breast milk instead of water would make any difference. ... (15 replies)
... The first couple times he had it, I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, but the last 2 times, he has had hives all over his chin when he's done! ... (15 replies)
... and said that all that other stuff is just fillers, and there's such a small amount of it that he probably wouldn't of had such a bad reaction if it wasn't the rice itself. So he said to try oatmeal or barley. ... (15 replies)
... we discovered this. I'd been using Similac to add extra calories to my breastmilk and he'd been being fine until all of a sudden he started projectile vomiting after every bottle. We got him onto Nutramigen and he's doing great. ... (15 replies)

... you might try a different brand of cereal. nestle brands made my daughters break out too, and i know i mixed theirs with formula - i know it's terrible, but i don't think i ever even looked at the instructions! i'd never thought about it before, but maybe something about the nestle brand reacts with something in the breastmilk or formula that would cause hives (hence the...

I know I bathed my son with me one time and the soap I used (which by the way was gentle and contained aloe) caused a minor reddening of the skin it came into contact with. Allergies that are related to ingesting the actual food I... (15 replies)
... I wrote a post some time ago about my son getting hives after eating the Nestle brand of rice cereal. I took him to the doctor, and he suggested that I not give him the rice, and try oatmeal and barley and see how he reacts. ... (1 replies)
