  • my son started eating baby food at 5months. he loves all that stuff. if you think your baby is ready for it then it probably is. moms usually know the right thing to do.

  • papaya is a "desert" at least in the stores that is how they classified it.. I tried giving it to our 7 month old, and he didnt like it.. the same with guava. But loves avocadoes...

  • Papaya is a fruit not a desert. If you make your own babyfood then yes you can make it from papaya, the jars i don't would have to check the label to see what else is in there.
