When Lila was 2.5 months old she developed eczema from head to toe. It wasn't awful, no cracking or seeping, but little red bumps all over and poor little birdie was always trying to scratch her head. This wasn't really a surprise since her dad and I both have eczema and luckily some Hydrocortisone ointment and Eucerin Aquaphor got it under control. She also had some mysteriously swollen lymph nodes on the back of her head and our pediatrician said the eczema and swollen nodes combined could be a sign of allergies. She suggested we go slowly with introducing foods to Lila when the time came.
When Lila was 6 months old, we gave her some rice cereal mixed with my milk. She was pretty sure we were trying to poison her.
