Introducing Foods Early

Modern Life SurvivalistModern Life Survivalist Saturated Fat Truther ✭✭

My baby just turned 5 months old, and she has shown interest in eating, so we've tried giving her avocado and butter (less than a tsp each time). Today we decided to give her carrots mixed with butter, and she just had that 2 seconds ago and seemed to really like it.


2 questions:


-have I done anything wrong so far by introducing food so early? (thinking butter might be bad for food allergies b/c dairy or whatever)


-can I add some salt yet? Should I?

  • Mark's Daily Apple recently did an article that mentioned a study about introducing foods to kids early:

    Says that early introduction to common allergy causing foods can actually prevent allergies to that food later in life.

    I would have waited a little bit longer especially since you are not breastfeeding any longer.


     


    Introduce the foods one at a time for a few days and test for allergies.

    Actually, she is back on the breast. But sometimes she likes the bottle better. She does whatever she wants, lol. It's really hard to predict what/when she wants to eat, but we started giving her solids, and she's seemed interested. I'm not really sure what allergies would look like.

    For infants it is mainly changes in their stool. Severe constipation or diarrhea. If the reaction is bad enough hives and all that jazz.
