Baby food...

I wanted to know if it was ok to use two or more different brands of baby food or should you stick with just one? I have found different combinations from different brands i'd like to expose my daughter to when introducing solids and was just wondering...

  • I used three different kinds when my kids were young. I don't really think that it will make a difference- just make sure you start with stage 1, wait 3 days between new foods in case of allergies, and then start with the combination ones once you no there is no reaction to any of the stage 1 foods. Happy feeding. :)

  • they all have the same ingredients so its fine to use different brands. its also really cheap and easy to make your own.

  • We didn't use any processed baby food and used fresh foods from different locations/brands.

  • Tony eats Gerber and Beech Nut. Beech Nut has soooo many more different selections so I get that when I'm at Price Chopper. But if I don't feel like going too far, I go to the store down the street from me and all they have is Gerber so I get that when I'm there. Its more of the type of food rather than the brand. So far, Tony has been on different brands and is doing fine.

  • You can use whatever brands you want and as many as you want- its the proceess of gradually introducing foods to your baby that is really important.
