Baby Mum Mum

Along with Caroline having Turner's, there is a host of other issues that come along with her diagnoses.  One of them is Celiac disease or gluten intolerance.  Around 3 months, I started Caroline on oatmeal instead of rice as her first food.  I thought she was okay, but she started to becoming increasingly fussy and then would have bouts of screaming.  This lasted for about 3 weeks before I started to think it might be the oatmeal.  After much googling, I found on the Turner's Syndrome website a connection between gluten and Turner's. Needless to say, we stopped gluten and things improved.  I have tried it a few other times in past few months and both times I ended up with a VERY hysterical baby by night time.

Finding finger foods (besides veggies and fruits) is a little difficult.  I used Baby Mum Mum's with Aubrey and she hated them.  I thought I would give it a try with Caroline since they are gluten free.  I was expecting her to hate them and totally dislike the texture, but she loved them.  It is so cute to hear her little rabbit teeth chomping into the rice cake.
