What are the symptoms of a baby not tolerating a first food?

Emery had squash (4 days in a row) and loved them and did wonderfully.

Then Carrots . . . the first day he got fussy that night, highly unusual for him. I skipped the next day just because he was sleepy and we never got to it. Then the next day he ate half a jar...a couple hours later he was fussy. Teething? Yes, but he didnít feel better with Tylenol. So this time I skipped a day on purpose. Today he munched almost a whole jar. About 2 hours later he got so fussy...all day...all night. Of course there would be 100 reasons for his fussiness, but I donít want to try again.

Could this be an intolerance to carrots?

Thanks so much for info

Yes, it could be a sign. I would wait at least 2 weeks and try again. If you get the same reaction again..I would forget the carrots and try again when he's older.

It could be a sign yes, good mom for noticing. Wait 2-8 wks, or more and try again. This is why it is important to test EVERY food. Good job Mom!

Thanks! Should I move on to the next food (sweet potatoes) or stick with rice cereal only for a while?

As long as he isn't having any more reactions, it's ok to try something else.

My DD was this way with Carrots in the beginning too! Weird!!! She's better now with them. I would wait, like stated, and try again.

Good Luck to you!
