    Default Blackstrap molasses

    Hi, I'm just wondering when you can introduce blackstrap mOlasses...
    Have recently started solids but want to start mixing it in my purees for the iron. Thanks!

    I started a blackstrap molasses thread in the solids part of the forum earlier this year. Check it out for some suggestions for how to incorporate it into your LO's diet.

    My son tested low for iron when he was 9 months old, so that is when we started.

    Thanks. . . I had read that thread before and actually that's the first I had ever heard about blackstrap. I give it to my toddler but don't know how to start with my 5 1/2 month old. He was a bit early so I know iron will be an issue and want to get a head start on it. I have started him on some solids after much discussion with our pediatrician. So I want to mix it in his purees but want to make sure it's not one of those things known to upset little tummies.
