I'm just wondering because I'm making a shrimp and spinach pasta dish tonight and I'm not sure if I should make Bella something else. Has anyone given their LO shrimp yet? I know my doc said fish is OK, and Bella loves tuna, but I'm a little leary since it's shellfish and I never specifically mentioned shrimp to the doc. Anyone?
Thanks. Paula, did your doc tell you that or did you read it online? I just looked it up and I couldn't find it anywhere. It looks like all the sites said if there were no allergies in the family that it was ok. Maybe I'll just give her chicken. Better safe then sorry I guess....
Levi has had clam chowder, but not straight up clams or shrimp. If we were eating shrimp, I'd probably give him some. Our doc gave us the go ahead on pretty much all foods (except chocking risks). We have no allergy history and he has no food sensitivities so far. I'd watch him like a hawk after, though.
That dish sounds really yummy. If it turns out well, can you share the recipe?
Thanks ladies. I didn't give her the shrimp. She had chicken. I was too scared. I guess I'll wait until her doc gives me the ok specifically for shellfish. Like I said before, Bella loves tuna and the doc said "fish" is fine, but I'll still wait.
The girls love fish here. Especially when Daddy cooks it. Jassie loves to make her own fish cakes and top them with cheese. I however am not the biggest fan and so neither of them have ever had shellfish or prawns.
