My son is six months old and beginning solids, and we're following an essentially baby-led approach (not exclusively; we're pretty flexible, but skipping rice cereal and most purees). This is new to us, and very new for my family--they think it's "New Age" or something lol. The issue is this: it is important to me that Thomas have good eating habits, and there are some foods I am not willing for him to have; others we will handle as occasional treats, but not until he's older.
We went for his 6-month checkup yesterday and I told our pediatrician that I wanted to enlist her help (meaning make her the bad guy lol), and presented her with a partial list of off-limits food. That way when I get the eye-rolling from family members, I can say, "Well, Dr. Wells said no...."
So far ours includes:
anything fried (chicken nuggets etc)
vienna sausages (gross, I know, but my brother loves them)
What am I missing? What are your off-limits foods?
