Re: Spinach leaves
I think you're right that your LO is ready for solids. But unless you grew that spinach yourself or plan to cook it, I personally would choose something else as a starter food. Leaf crops- spinach, lettuce, etc.- have been associated with outbreaks of salmonella and other bacterial diseases. And this includes the organic stuff. It's a small risk, sure- but with such a young baby I'd err on the side of caution.
Interested to hear others' thoughts on this... Maybe I'm just being a nervous nelly.
ETA: More nervous Nellying- if the leaf your LO was eating was from a red maple (Acer rubrum), you probably don't want her to do that again, as the leaves are poisonous. Not in such a small quantity, but still...
