    Absolutely!!

    It's more DH than me but he makes me paranoid. And when I say she'll be fine he tells me I'm not respecting his feelings of being concerned, etc. So then I question whether she will be ok. But we went through this with K so... I'm also more inclined to second guess because of Lu's aversions and allergies but really I don't need to be hyperviligant. Our house is a safe food place for her.


    Lynn, thanks for the link.

    Erin and Eris, thanks for the ideas. I'm gonna make oatmeal this morning and see if she has any interest.

    Tiff I agree with PP that just make sure you can mush it with your tongue on the roof of your mouth.. Their gums are super strong. Oatmeal is great.. but Beans and Avoc and Veggies.. and whatever you cook.. She will start eatting more when she is ready too...

    Just take it slow ... as soon as L starts demonstrating that she "knows" how to eat will your DH relax a little?

    I used to use the small food mill on meats and stuff I figured they might have trouble gumming but they just got what ever we were eating for supper.

    Do you ladies introduce new foods early in the day for allergy checks? I was going to give DS hamburger meat for the first time today but it will be dinner time. Is this ok?

    Owen is 1yr old and doesn't have any teeth, but he eats everything we do (except main dairy sources due to possible allergy). I either cut his food up in small pieces (but normal for his age, I don't do anything different because he doesn't have teeth) or I give him really large pieces of things he can hold and munch on. I do sit right next to him and take choke-able size pieces away and break them up smaller once he bites them off. He's done fine so far - gagged a few times but nothing major.

    Check out the link that lksam posted for me. It's recommended that you do it early so that you can monitor your LO for a few hours to see if they will have a reaction.

    Note that most reactions do not occur the first time the food is fed - we would give DS new foods early in the day for about 5 days and only after he was having them for a few weeks would I then allow him to have them closer to bed time.

    Outgrew pork, oats, soy, chickpeas, peas, turkey, chicken, shellfish and wheat. He has now outgrown more than half his food allergies
