I have been really hesitant to give Dylan certain foods and Im not sure why.
Like Pear and Pineapple, Grape and Banana and Plum. Some of the Pasta/Veggie Mixes, Some of the meat and veggie mixes.
Like someone said in a different post if it wasnt safe for babies they wouldnt put it in baby food but I have noticed a lot with the fruits that they have citrus which I thought babies werent supposed to have and strawberries, and pineapple just makes me nervous. What about the ones with egg yolks? Are these ok at 7 months?
Just looking for some reassurance I think lol Who would have thought that I would stress so much over what baby food I was buying!!!
I have given Blaise everything you said, and he is just fine. I don't think if it bad for them, then why would they make the baby food? I buy every food they have in the Stage 2 jars, which is what Blaise is eating. There is not one thing that I have not given him. And he hasn't had a problem with any of it. He actually loves the pears/pineapples and cherries/apples. I can't remember what the strawberries are mixed with, but he has eaten them a lot. And blueberry cobbler, he love it!!!!
Donovan has had all kinds of things they tell you not to give. He had strawberries in some babyfood that was Gerber and he was ok with that so I tried him with real strawberries and he loves them. He's also had some citrus juice because it was in a Gerber mix, he did fine. He has also had spinach in Earth's best babyfood. I think what I would do is try him on the babyfood first. If he does ok, then maybe try the real stuff. I don't give those things to him very often though since he's mostly on babyfood still and not so much big people food. We don't have any family history of any sorts of food allergies though, so I haven't really held back on anything except honey. And he won't have any peanut butter until he's old enough to eat it in a sandwhich. I think as long as it's in the babyfood, it's made with amounts of the food that their little systems can handle.
I'm not going to worry about giving Ally any of the baby foods. I will just watch closely to make sure there is no reaction but from people I have talked to who have tried them none have had anything bad happen from them.
