  • It is fine. As with ALL new food, you will have to watch her for symptom of allergy. It is always a good idea to keep children benadryl on hand along with the proper dosage instruction if she were to show allergy symptoms. Watermelon, bananas, plums, ripe peaches are great for those feeder things. Especially chilled or mildly frozen.

  • frozen wafflesare good for teething too and you dont have to put in the feeder thing.

  • what is a fresh food feeder? LOL It should be just fine, my little girl eats everything under teh sun when it comes to fruits nad veggies. I agree just watch for allergies.

  • they usually don't want you giving solids to them until 6 months ... but if she's just sucking the juice and chewing on it ... she should be okay..
