    Default BLW & spaghetti/noodles?

    Does anyone have experience they care to share with giving baby (8 months) spaghetti/noodles? My hubby insists that I chop it up. What have you done?

    ALSO wanted to ask (do I post another thread?) about feeding bub fermented foods. I've heard about how good fermented foods are supposed to be for your gut, so what's safe that can I give to my boy?

    I just put spaghetti on DDs tray and let her play with it. Not much makes it in her mouth but that doesn't really matter at that age. She's 21mo and still makes a huge mess with noodles and spaghetti but more makes it in her mouth.

    I can't comment on fermented foods.

    Pasta spaghetti I did cut a little bit so about 5 -10cm lengths for her to suck down the first fee times. Canned spaghetti I left as is as its much softer and they can gum it into smaller pieces mid swallow anyway.

    If you're nervous cut it up the first time

    I always left spaghetti and fettuccine long, DS used to grab big handfuls and just gum it! By about 9 months he mastered sucking up a long noodle lady and the tramp style which was hilarious to watch!

    I had DS on a pro biotic from 4 months, at 6 months he was having fermented yogurt or yogurt with Kefir , I did give him fermented tempeh a few times but I'm not a huge fan of it so we don't have it very often! fermented veggies were too high in salt for babies but now at 2.5 he does love olives and pickles and we all love red cabbage sauerkraut !!
