    Default Pineapple?

    I bought a jar of pear/pineapple baby food, and ds loved it. I thought it was strange that it was a stage 2 food..do they do something to it that makes it less acidic? Cook it maybe? Would I be able to feed ds plain pineapple now? Or in a mixture? He is almost 9 months. I'm a little leery of it, but he did not have any reaction to the jarred food.

    Has anyone given pineapple to their babies?

    My dd is 11.5 months now, and she loves pineapple. She has had it in the jarred variety you're talking about, and she's had regular canned pineapple, and she LOVES it when I buy a whole pineapple and give her chunks to feed herself. She's never seemed to have a problem with the acidity. Hope that helps!

    Yes and she loves it!! I give it to her chunks in those mesh feeding things. I would just say don't give to much because I worry about the same thing. But she has never had a problem with them.

    do you still have the jar?
    I bet that it wasn't all pineapple but mostly flour or rice starch, With a little bit of pineapple juice.
    Just watch for reaction in baby.

    I'm pretty sure the gerber one is just pears, pineapple, and water, right?

    I think it was beechnut...only pears, pineapple and water.

    Well, I chopped up some fresh pineapple into really small pieces and offered them to ds, but he wasn't interested (spit it right back out). I wonder what the ratio is to that pear/pineapple mix....

    DD loves pineapple but at first was a little "wierded" out by the texture of it I think. A lot of spitting it out at first, then she would just hold the pieces and suck the juice, now she gobbles the whole piece!!
