Okay, at Mikayla's last appointment (6 moths) the doctor told me to start her on veggies, and then give her fruits. She never mentioned meats or anything like that.. Well, today my boyfriend's mother picked her up strained veggies and pasta.. I don't know if its ok to give her that too? She hasn't had any of the veggies that are in it (green beans, tomato paste and onions), but the jar says 6 months and up.. Should I try her on it??

And also right now I'm still testing her with fruits so would I be able to tell what she's allergic to if she does have a reaction? Or would I just stop giving her one of the two to see what it is?

Sorry, I just don't want to make her sick or anything

I'm going to get in touch with my doctor tomorrow to ask her about other foods and such, but I was just wondering if you guys could help me out TIA

The general rule is meats/pastas at 9 months. Some people do it early, but I think it is a personal choice. Troy's had some issues with food sensitivity so I am waiting for the okay at his 9 month appt. I would only try one new food at a time in the beginning so I would only do the fruits now and then try the new one when you were done with that one. You could do both and then eliminate, but if this is all new for her, it may upset her tummy.

It is wise to only give single ingredient food at first. This way it is easier to see if she is allergic to anything. When you have mixed food it would be alot harder. They say to try the food for at least 5 days and if the is no adverse reaction then move on to the next. One sign of an allergic reaction is redness around the mouth and on the cheeks.. I learned this from my doctor. And most doctors say to hold of on meats until they at least 8 months old

Ok thanks girls. I was thinking basically the same thing but I just wanted to make sure because I kinda feel pressure from them on me starting her on meats and other foods.

Thanks a lot
