<p>My son is 7 months old.  I would have loved to breastfed him until he was two, but that didn't work out on multiple levels.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>That said, he's sick.  Heavy cold/chest congestion...that sort of thing.  We have a nebulizer and are using that.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>But since my husband is also currently battling bronchitits, I'm about to make some chicken broth/soup.  And it made me think, "could i give it to our son?".  </p>
<p><br>
Can I?  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thank you!</p>

<p>Absolutely.  My DS got broth based formula at 3 or 4 <em>weeks</em>.  Just go light on the salt. </p>

<p>Absolutely, one of the best foods out there. It not only nourishes, but it heals the gut and detoxes and is easily digestible. Go for it, even when baby's not sick!</p>

<p>I would do it!  try fermented cod liver oil as well because the vitamin d can help prevent illness as well as lessen the severity of illness.</p>
<p>cyclamen: tell me more about offering baby chicken bones?  when, how, etc, thanks!</p>

<br><br><p>Not much to it.  you know when you are eating a roast chicken and there is a drumstick left after you eat all the yummy stuff?  I would just pull off the small bones so they wouldn't poke her and hand the rest to DD and she would gnaw on them.  She seemed to enjoy the taste and the knobbiness.  We have so many picutures of her waving around that or other meat bones, like from steak, lol.  So cute.  Anyhow, I think we did it when she was sitting up in the chair and showing interest.  So... six months or so?  Eight months?  You know, you think you will never forget, but you do.... :)</p>
