Hi. My baby is 19 months old and has no safe foods yet. She drinks Neocate Jr. Food trials are so hard - she often won't have a clear Fpies vomit reaction to a new food, but will get very cranky and cry a lot and be awake at night screaming.  The few times I continued trying the new food, she started the vomit / diarrhea reaction. Now that she's learning how to talk, she asks for food and gets really upset when she sees food and I don't let her have it. Does anyone have any ideas that could help me? When she's around food, I give her water or ice cubes, is there anything else to do with a toddler who wants food? Does anyone have experience with navigating food trials with this type of mild reactions?

My two boys were around that age when they got their first safes. They were older when their reactions became more mild like yours but we have dealt/are dealing with them too.

in addition to the ice you can make popsicles and shaved ice from. The formula and I have been told make puffs from it. My kids were on BrM so I didn’t do it but did as soon as they had safes. Mix formula to the consistency of icing go slow and use hot water so it dissolves, put it in a piping bag and a medium star tip and pip dots onto parchment paper, you can do a ton as they shouldn’t spread. Bake on 200 for a long time like at least 30 minutes. Pick one up and check the bottom to see if they are baked through.

Talk to her about how food is making her sick and you are working very hard to figure out something safe her body. They understand more than we give them credit for.

Also she likely need oral motor therapy due to lack of exposure and that can be started without food and may help her get the oral sensation part of what she craves.
