Second Child with FPIES - Help!

Hi there,

My almost 4 year old had classic FPIES to rice and oats. Luckily he just passed Oats in  hospital this past month and we will be trialing rice shortly. I also have a 9 month old who recently reacted to Barley - she was fine on it for 6 weeks, i happened to remove it for 3 weeks and then when I reintroduced it she had a classic vomiting reaction 2 hours later. So far she has been fine on a ton of fruits and vegetables as well as peas, chicken, soft cheese and yogurt.  I can't get into our allergist for another 2  months and was hoping to find some direction/help from other parents on which foods to avoid until our appointment. Here are my questions:

1. For those of you who have a child with a Barley trigger, which other foods do they also react to? 

2. Do children with barley reactions tend to react to all other grains (i.e., rice, oats, wheat etc)?

3. I'm wondering if I should delay all grains until after she is 1 year old - does the research support delayed introduction of grains for high risk kids?

I can't seem to find any literature on this. Thanks in advance!!!
