  • Yes, it is ok to give her that.
    You can also pure or mash down whatever you are eating (minus most spices/seasonings) and have her eat that too

  • I personally didn't give fruit right away it was only veggies and then after a while meats. But no fruits. especailly at 6 months, but every parent is different. I know they say that giving fruit before meats, could change their eating habits, but then again every baby is different. good luck!

  • Yes! There are actually very few calories in the baby food, so alot of babes that age will eat two containers of the 1st food along with their milk.

  • if she has already been eating's usally 1 food every few days or a wk. and your supposed to start with veggies first. If she's been eating these then yeah not a big deal.

  • If hunger at night is a problem try giving him a small bowl of rice cereal and a veggie, that should keep his tummy full for a while. Stay away from fruit for a little bit, get him used to veggies first

  • Sure you can do that.

    With my almost 6mo, we BF first then do some of a fruit for breakfast - we do the same for dinner, bf first then some veggies.
