We do baby-led feeding with our daughter. And she leads into places she's not "supposed" to go. Or she hasn't gotten the "allergenic foods" memo.
She's not yet 9 mos, and she's had oranges and clementines. I heard it was recommended to hold off because the citric acid could upset their tummies? But, seeing that she eats hot peppers (I kid you not...the girl's got a steel stomach), I don't think that bothers her, and we didn't notice any reactions.
She's also had tomatoes, strawberries, tofu, wheat, and peanut butter. *shrug* I think the only "allergy" food she HASN'T had is shellfish. I'm pretty sure my MIL gave her chocolate pudding when I wasn't there.
: (I kind of want to hold off on all the sugar crap) I didn't mean to give her peanut butter, but last week she was in the bjorn, I had a sandwich in one hand, and was making another for the little girl I watch, and, Lightning Mouth bit a piece off before I even noticed.
And then she IMMEDIATELY turned bright red, made some grunty-gaspy noises, I began searching frantically for my phone, sure she was going into anaphelactic (sp?) shock, and realized there was a foul odor in the room.
Yeah, she chose that moment to deposit a stinky in the diaper. Nice timing, giving Mama a heart attack.
Her only allergy so far is cinnamon, and that seems to be more of a skin irritation rather than an ingestion allergy (she ate it fine a few times, but then smeared some of the oatmeal all over her face and broke out). So, we don't give her any for now to be safe (I read that many babies grow out of cinnamon reactions by age three)
