I was at wal-mart, and it seemed that their stock was seriously low on Gerber foods. I have a few questions. My daughter, has had her intro. to peas. They then didn't have the reg. peas, so I bought and started her with Tender Harvest Organic peas. I bought those again, but someone told me that Organic is bad, that it's potentially harmful to your baby. I know that this can't possibly be true, otherwise they wouldn't sell it right? Also, can I intermix the organic with the regular?

Then, with the "2" number. What is up with all the varieties? I was SO confused at the store. They didn't have stage one's of the veggies that Nat's already had, so I just got stage '2's, I can intermix the stage 1 fruits and 2 veggies, right?

There are SO many different kinds of foods for the number 2's. I don't know what to introduce, when. Some are dinners, some are exotic fruits and different veggies (like mixed veggies with spinach). Mac and cheese, apples and turkey? When do you introduce meats? Is it the same way as you introduce the 1's?

I'm sorry if I've got alot of questions - and they may be stupid, I'm just So lost here.

Thanks so much!

My understanding of the single food Stage 2 is that they are just thicker than stage 1. I know nothing aobut organic -- sorry.

As for the other questions. I believe our pediatrician said no meat till 8 months. As far as introducing the "mixed" foods. My rule is that they ahve to have had all but one ingredient in it, then I treat it just as I would any other new food. For instance, say your baby has had apples and bananas. Then you could try the Apple Banana Strawberry, it would be a way of introducing strawberries. I believe the "exotics" you just introduce like any other food. You just introduce one at a time.

Good luck
