"Old" first time ma (38) to Athena (May 17, 09) Oh my G-d, I'm nursing a toddler!!
I gave ds1 strawberries before he was one and I feed him canned tuna. He was probably about 1 the first time he had it. I am just careful not to give him more then 2 servings of it a week, (okay, so we probably only have it once a month...) because of possible murcry levels. I only use the tuna that is packed in water.
Mommy to 2 little boys!
DS1 11/1/07 BFed 7 months
DS2 11/6/09 BF 2 YEARS! and counting!
i didn't realize that strawberries were an allergen, and just gave them to my 8mo last week. it was one of the few times i've given him commercial baby food (we were out of town for my FIL's funeral and it was easier), and the jar said 6 months+. it was pears, strawberries, and bananas, and he LOVES bananas and pears, so i got it and gave it to him, and then DH comes in and says, "strawberries. wow. those are an allergen." then MIL pops up with, "yeah, i'm very allergic to them."
but DS was fine -- no red butt, nothing. and he loved it.
