Several days ago we introduced carrots to the little guy. Cooked and pureed. He loves the taste and ate em up like crazy. Good news, right?
Not so much, because while they went in well, there’s been trouble coming out the other end. Poor kid has terrible rotten carrot smelling stinky farts and poops far less frequently. And oh boy when he does poop…my goodness. My poor child is living in a stinky cloud, plus those eczema looking patches on his cheek are flaring up.
So we’re giving the carrots a break. I looked up carrots and infant food on google and read about the nitrates issue. It doesn’t at all resemble the issues we’re having. Then I’m thinking that it’s almost like he’s got a mild allergy and his digestive tract is having trouble as a result. Who has a carrot allergy?
Oh….wait. There is that weird thing my brother and I inherited from my father where we get hiccups when we eat raw carrots. Really. I swear. It’s uncommon, but not unheard of. Bless you internet for revealing this to be the widespread problem I never knew it was.
Perhaps these two issues are related? We may never know, but I for one am hoping the Remster works those carrots out of his system ASAP. Poor widdle wabbit.
