The baby I'm talking about is almost 10 months, can she eat tuna yet?

I wouldn't. Tuna is extremely high in mercury.

I wouldn't give any fish/seafood until they are over two but that is just me. If you want to do something like tuna, canned Alaskan salmon is much lower in mercury, cold water fish are your best bet.

I knew it had mercury, but I thought it was lower then other fish with mercury. =/

Fish is an important part of our diet.  The babies eat it at 6-7 months, when they star solids.

Good list to follow.

Fish is a huge part of our diet too but we are picky about the fish our kids eat.
