  • Never a large amount. I've licked some off my hand after it spilled before, and I wasn't impressed. Tastes like liquid cardboard.

  • Yes, I taste everything I am going to feed to my child. That includes my own breastmilk.

  • Yes. I tried everything I fed her. It wasn't great but it wasnt' awful eitiher.
    When she was put on Nutramagen, I didn't blame her one bit for refusing it. I was glad we were able to switch to Good Start instead.
    When I opened a jar of baby food meat, I knew there was no way I was going to try it and I didn't offer any to her. The stuff smelled like cheap cat food.
