    Cool He's Done

    Well Gavin is done with baby food I had posted last week or so that he wasn't really wanting to eat, well I've been offering more from my plate, and guess what, he chows down on that but refuses the baby food So I'd like to know if there is a site out there that list what a 9 1/2 mo old can have/can't have!
    So far he's having spaghetti, soups, rice, noodles, mashed veggies...
    Anyhow just wanting to have a good "list" of what he can or can't have Ty!

    I thought they couldn't have any kind of dairy til 1, or is that JUST milk?

    from babycenter.com

    and also, they are not allowed fish yet right?

    and so if he's allowed dairy, just any kind of cheese/yogurt??

    I don't have a list...as DS eats anything and everything in sight...no baby food for him. The biggest thing that I watch out for is sodium. Annie (paint-the-moon) posted a link about sodium intake in infants...I'll bump it up.

    If I'm making something that we like salt in, we salt it when we serve ourselves...our I'll pull some stuff out for DS to eat before I salt it. We try to eat fresh veggies as much as possible or I will buy frozen ones (be careful that the ingredients say just broccoli and not salt).

    Other than that, we pretty much give DS anything and everything we eat. We had some 5 cheese ravioli with marinara for lunch today that I made. I just took out 2 raviolis for him to eat before I put on the marinara.

    DS eats almost anything and everything. I dice a raw potato and then steam it. The dicer I have leaves perfect size pieces for DS to pick up and eat. Sometimes I'll help him get some of the slippery pieces in his mouth. I do the same with sweet potatos too.

    Good luck and I hope gavin enjoys...I don't blame him for not wanting that nasty baby food anyways...especially when his mommy is a much better cook

    shiloh has been eating yogurt for about 2 months now with no problem. no sign of allergy and no other indications of any reactions...to any food for that matter. He's now eating string mozzarella cheese and loves cubes of monterrey jack cheese.

    We use plain, unflavored organic whole milk yogurt from Stoneyfield Farms. I'll mix some fruit, oatmeal, cinammon in with this in the morning sometimes. I'll also mix in some cooked millet/barley which he loves.

    We occasionally give him a YoBaby yogurt (seems to have more sugar than I'd like for it to) because it is easy to transport...like to the church nursery or out in public. I've also experimented with making my own yogurt a few times.

    Happy eating!

    A couple of things I avoided (Per P-T-M's links ) Tomatoes and any kind of Citrus fruits. No berries. No Nuts. No Fish. No Pork or Beef. NO HONEY. NOTHING COOKED with HONEY. This includes honey baked meats and graham crackers. And all things salty. (So no pickles). Berries and nuts are high allergy risks and cooking honey does NOT kill botchelism (SP) spores....babies under a year can't process salt...and I forget why citrus is a bad idea...but now he's a year and I managed to give him everything on this list in the 3days of Christmas Except fish. In no hurry w/ the mercury....but we will get there I suppose....

    Way too lazy for formula

    Is it just the "big fish" that are a concern? Like shark, etc. . . Meaning the fish that feed on the smaller bottom feeders are the ones that are problematic? Thanks!

    I look for the same thing, sodium content. You would be shocked on how much salt is in a lot of products (including store bought baby food). My DH has high blood pressure and is on a low sodium diet now. I have always followed one due to my fingers swell if I eat too much salt. Glad to know I am not the only mom that is concerned about sodium content!!!!
