  • Babies can have meat, if that's what you're asking. You'd have to make sure it wasn't spicy and I'd leave off the salt and pepper and such and just go with herbs but yeah babies can meat.

  • I think it's fine to give them chicken as long as you make it into small enough pieces. I wouldn't, however, do the curry because babies stomachs can't handle a lot of spices.

  • We feed our kids anything we will eat :) specially when they get that age and start demanding it lol but yeah I would watch spices don't want to make baby cranky :)

  • You're OK so long as you're introducing one new food every three days. That way you can tell if there are any allergic reactions.
