I was reading about different foods to give to Keira since she’s getting older and I came across a website called Wholesome Baby Food.
There is a whole list on her site of “forbidden baby foods” and why you shouldn’t give them to your baby. Like honey for example – it could cause botulism in infants under a year old. I won’t name everything on her list – you can check it out yourself here.
Personally – Keira will not be getting ANY eggs, honey or any form of milk (ice cream etc.), peanut butter, any form of nuts, no citrus or acidic fruit, strawberries, raspberries or blueberries, grapes or shellfish. Simply because I don’t want her to have any issues with any of that stuff and because well – it’s what her doctor said. Doctor’s know best right?
I waited for all this stuff with Seth and he has no allergies to food what so ever. I’m hoping that Keira will have no issues too – when she can have that stuff. We made homemade ice cream (chocolate and vanilla) Monday and Keira really wanted some but I wouldn’t let her have any. It had half and half and sweetened condensed milk and whole milk in it.
I’ve read about people giving their babies shredded chicken and things like that at this age but I am not considering that until she gets teeth – which – she almost has!
What did/do you give your 6 month old? She’s in second stage foods right now and she just had apricots yesterday. She seemed to like them! 🙂 I love her faces when she tries new foods!
