    Question Pureed meat

    OK, my ped said that she doesn't recommend pureed meat esp because I BF. He doesnt need the protein she said. Well, DH wants him to try some. Is it going to hurt him to get some? I don't really care to do it, but if it isnt that big a deal then maybe I'll let DH feed him some. What do you think??

    I told DH I had to talk to you ladies before I did it. And I couldn't find my copy of the womanly art of breastfeeding!!

    Ive got mine here.
    Meat is introduced early because of its high protien and iron content.
    You don't have to puree it you can just chop it fine.

    Yeah, I wouldn't puree it. Gross! Abigail likes little nibbles of whatever meat we're having- she tears it off with her incisors and says, "mmmmmmmm." She loves steak, which I think is just too funny, and has also tried chicken and some pork chops (very well cooked).

    Gage has no teeth yet, so there wont be any tearing, but I can cut it up really fine that would be ok?

    He hasn't picked up stuff to eat. If he gets paper, it goes in the mouth. If I give him banana he wont touch it!!! He eats off of a spoon very well, and even tries to "help" guide your hand sometimes. but as far as self feeding not yet.

    I'd wait then. IF he doesn't have any teeth and he's not picking stuff up then he might not be ready.. Watch baby not calander..
    A few bites here and there isn't going to hurt, if hubby wants to feed him meat let him worry about grinding it and such.
    this is what I used with my babies..
