I started my dd with salmon shortly before her first bday (she was 9mos adjusted age at the time). She loves it and we have no food allergies in the family. One thing I noticed is that she would cram alot into her mouth and push it to the roof of her mouth. I think she did this because it was so flaky. Just wanted to mention the roof of the mouth thing just in case
I give her lots of fish now but only wild fish and only fish that is typically very low in mercury. She loves it all!
Oh, and I stay away from the "dark" flesh, too. Althouh the dark meat is higher in fat and cals, it is also more likely to have a higher mercury level than the white meats. We only do fish about once a week and I never give dd a bigger portion than the palm of her hand.This is the site
I use to help decide if the fish of the week is known to have mercury or not. Note that it cautions you from feeding your children fish that is caught in local waterways... It really is a judgement call.
