    Default Watermelon?

    I have a bowl of mixed fruit from my grocer(sp). It is mixed with strawberries (not many) along with watermelon and honeydew. Can I give dd2 watermelon even though there is a chance some strawberry juice might be on the melon. What about pineapple?

    i would say- be cautious with those strawberries (or the juice!). i wasnt expecting allergies with ds and we've had a couple of gnarly episodes (not with strawberries, but still)
    watermelon, however, ds looooved at that age (and still does)

    but....maybe give her a little and watch for hives and be ready. if she seems fine after a bit.....all is ok. i dunno....those bowls of mixed fruit get to mixin' in their juices.

    just my thoughts. i'd be careful.

    oh. and pineapple, i believe you wait for a bit (until 1 yr?) b/c it's citrus-y

    That is what I was thinking, but dd1 really wants to share food (not from her plate) with dd2. She does not understand strawberries. I think I will just her a bowl of just watermelon next trip to the store.
