    I just wanted to make sure of the things she(8 months) shouldn't eat because I hear so many different moms says that babies cant eat this when another mom says they can....

    the big thing is honey bc of botulisim (sp?). milk is another one bc they say there tummys cant handle it and the nutriance in it isnt enough but i have given my 8 month old milk here and there when i had a glass myself. he has never had any problems with anything with his tummy so it didnt bother me to do that. also they say no banana or hotdogs unless they are severly cut up bc they are a choking hazerd. and if you have any food alergies in your family avoid those foods to see how he does till he gets a bit older.

    I have a mesh fresh food feeder bag, it was only $4 at walmart, and put bananas and strawberries and other whole foods in it for my LO he loves it if they are frozen first, and it lets them chew on it without choking since only little bits will come out the holes.
    I also heard you shouldn't give them peanut butter until they are around 2 years just in case they are allergic that way they have more chance of survival if they have a reaction.

    I think the important thing to remember is to keep her away from any allergens this means

    no cow's milk
    no peanuts/nuts
    no shellfish

    I've also heard no citrus either like orange juice or limes/lemons whatever until after a year. I'm not sure why though.
