    Default introducing foods

    SO I have been taking it real slow introducing one food at a time 3 to 4 days without introducing anything else to catch allergies...and it was a good thing bec she had a reaction to sweet potatoes (of all things) I was feeding her the gerber stage one purees...but now I am itching to start the stage 2s with her...and they mix all their fruits..how am I supposed to introduce multi foods to her at once?? and also some stage 2's had strawberries and berries. but I though they aren't good til later on (and when is that--my lol is 6.5 mo)?? Also when is pineapple considered "safe"??-- I LOVE pineapple and want to introduce it, but not too soon!!

    Thanks

    i would hold off on anything with strawberries, it is pretty high on the allergen list and one of the moms here gave her little one some puffs w/ strawberries and he had a reaction. i would hold off on pineapple as it is more of a citrus in regards to acid content, it is very acidic. you can try blueberries as they are not in the same category as strawberries. here is some info.
