|Crackers loves Nonnie's "Happy Apple"|
Tonight I shared my Chinese chicken salad with Crackers for dinner. I went upstairs to take care of a potty need with Monkey (I know, don't leave your baby in the high chair). When I came back down, Crackers had finished his dinner. I pulled him out of the high chair to get him dressed and.... saw that his eyes were red and swollen, his face was splotchy, he had a light rash on his trunk and limbs... UGH!
Seriously? I gave him the same food 2 nights ago for dinner. He had no reaction to it then. Maybe it's because somehow the egg in the mayonnaise somehow got stronger over 2 days? I have no idea - I really hope it is not some strange new allergy. I quickly gave him Benadryl - I wish I had gotten a picture of his crazy redness. He is still slightly swollen 2 hours later. I guess that means no more products with any egg in them at all for a while.
