Avacado first and rash?

My LO turned 6 months last week... we fed her about a quarter or less of avocado, slightly mashed. She immediately got a rash on her bum (NEVER had a rash before this). I fed her avocado once a day for 3 days. She then had horrendous gas (never had that before either) and seemed constipated (NEVER has had a problem before).

Now, it has been 3 days since we gave her any food, and she is still pooping out avocado. Her poop is even sort of dryish (sorry if TMI).

Also, her rash is almost gone now after getting really nasty.

Do you think she could be allergic to avocado?
Or is her system just not ready for solids??

She is EBF

That sounds similar to the symptoms my DD1 gets when she's allergic to a food (raw (skin almost looks burned) rash, etc). Good luck. Food Allergies are no fun.

I really hope it isn't allergies.... This is my 6th child, and haven't had to deal with allergies in a child yet, but this might be the one??

Re: Avacado first and rash?

Is avacado a common first food? We did bananas then sweet potatoes then expanded from there with no problems. Maybe it was just too tough on her system to start with?

Avocado is a common first food... it is listed with bananas and sweet potatoes. I did read if there is allergy to avocado, then there is allergy to bananas and latex too.

I wondered about it being tough on her system too though.
