I have no clue how to feed my baby.

What and how much should a one year old be eating? Is it pretty much anything? This is my first so I'm probably over thinking it but I just don't want to mess up.

This is only if there is a family history of said allergy.

Quoting stickyfingers:

They shouldn't have peanut butter, strawberries and other things that are common for allergies. I think even oranges. It's not just a free for all when they turn one. Some things are dangerous too like nuts and popcorn



Quoting Anonymous:

At a yr old why can't they eat anything?





Quoting stickyfingers:

No they can't eat anything if they have teeth don't listen to pp! Give her mashed fruit like bananas. I would give mine rice crispies all soggy lol if you give meat make sure it's teeny pieces but she should have mostly fruits and veggies right now. And milk. Are you still nursing or giving formula?

Allergies a big in our family

Quoting jjchick75:

After a year old peanut butter and other allergens are fine to give as long as there is no family history of allergies.

The milk is going to still be the main and most important thing you give her.

 *oh yes I forgot what group I was in let me explain* We kept DD with a virgin/open gut as long as possible.  Started solids at 7 months.  We held off on honey because of the risk of botulism and DS was sick and in the hospital from rota virus.  There isnt a chance in Hell I would even play with the idea of trying it and DD getting sick.  So we held off.  Many dont care but Im an Id rather be safe than sorry person.  THE OP never said if they were a shes 12 months 1 or 18 months, thats why I said no honey.(My birth group is of like minds thats why it came out)

At a year old, they can have honey.
