Q.

alergies (honey)

Hi

Please could you advise me.
MY son is 6,5 months now and my husband went and bought him cereal and with out thinking twice i have been giving it to him. every morning for the past 3 days and i only recently saw it was for 7 months and up and it contains honey. How ever he seems to be vomiting alot. and i cant say for sure what it is, because he has also recently gotten flue after he got his 6 in 1 injection with the rota virus drops.
But it is a concern. Could he be haveing allergies to the honey or could it be something ells.

He has also become very upset all the time crying and moaning, especially if you try lie him down but He stops crying if you pick him up and hold him.

im alittle worried.

Any advice please.

Thanks

It could be the honey that is causing the problem or the wheat cereal. Try him on a rice or maize cereal and see if this helps him.
