The past few days we've been able to try new foods with Landon. I found some wheat free flour and made Landon some pancakes out of it. I used water instead of milk and substituted the eggs with applesauce. They actually tasted pretty good. Landon absolutely loved them.
I also found pasta made out of rice flour so Landon was finally able to enjoy some spaghetti! I finally got to take those messy spaghetti pictures that everyone has of their babies. He even tolerated the small amount of sauce that we gave him. I was worried that he would have a problem because whenever I eat sauce it seems to make him sick after he breastfeeds. Although I haven't had sauce in months so I guess he outgrew that sensitivity. It gives me hope that one of these years he will outgrow his food allergies.
Today we made a trip to Whole Foods and found a number of things for Landon to eat. We found some rice crackers and wheat free fruit cereal bars. It's nice to now have a variety of food for Landon to snack on instead of rice cakes and apple slices. We also found wheat free/dairy free bread. His food allergies are not light on the budget. The bread alone was almost $7 for a small loaf, but it will be completely worth it to finally be able to give him some toast with jelly or even a turkey sandwich (minus the cheese). I plan on making him french toast tomorrow by using pureed bananas instead of eggs to dip his bread into. I'm sure he will love it.
