Mashed Potatoes
 
DS does really well eating lumpy purees with his hands. On Thanksgiving, I gave him some mashed potatoes, but now I feel so guilt about it! The potatoes had milk and butter in it. He didn't eat a TON but enough to make me worry afterward.

The next evening (like 30 hrs later) he had very watery BM and I contributed it to the potatoes. But wouldn't he get a reaction sooner than that?

Do you think it was a bad idea to have given it?

I don't think it's bad either! The babies at this stage don't need to be so careful on their fat intake, if that worries you. I used mashed potatoes a lot for Kirsty, normally fork mashed with nothing through them, but combined with veg./meat... but I have given her mashed pots with milk/butter through if she is to have the same food we're eating for dinner.

The aim is eventually they will move to eating exactly what we eat, so a little now & then isn't so bad :)

It's really more the dairy that I'm questioning :confused:

He *should* be fine with dairy. Well, what I mean is, allergies aside, there's no reason he couldn't have dairy, it's common to offer baby yogurt as puddings after 6 months.

Does anyone in your families suffer with dairy allergies/intolerence? I guess, the only way to be sure, is to give it a few days or so and try him again to see if you see the same thing happen?

:ditto: unless there are dairy allergies in the family then he should be ok. I would have thought if he was going to have an icky nappy it would have been sooner than 30 hours later too :)
