Re: Starting new foods - a question
hmmm...good question. when i first started dd on solids at 5.5 months old, i did only feed one food at a time for a few days. for example, i gave her peas for about 3 days. then i gave her green beans for about 3 days...then carrots for a few days...then sweet potatoes for a few days...then squash for a few days. by this time however, i started to mix the foods - for example, i'd feed her some peas and carrots for lunch. BUT when i started to introduce fruits, i'd give those for breakfast for a few days with veggies for lunch. for example, i gave her pears for breakfast for a few days, but for lunch it was any of the veggies listed above. then i introduced apples for breakfast.
overall i think what you are doing is just fine. as long as you know what you're feeding your dd and what could be the culprit if she were to have an allergic reaction.
