    Default How to introduce?

    How many days should I leave before introducing the next taste?

    None! I gave everything and anything, if you have no history of allergies just offer her a wide and varied diet

    Same, I gave my daughter banana for a couple of days to get her used to the concept of picking something up and putting it in her mouth, but on about day 3, she had quiche and salad for dinner! And she's had something new almost every day since :-)

    For my first child I waited a week inbetween new foods. Makes working out reactions of they should have any easier to work out.

    I've just introduced everything from the beginning. If there is a history of allergy they do say not to combine things until you know there is no reaction.
    I was told it takes about 10 tastes for some kids to accept the taste.
    Eg. Day 1 I tried pumpkin and later carrot
    Next day carrot then sweet potato
    Then mixed pumpkin and carrot. ..
    Scrambled eggs. ..avocado...
    Then just kept adding flavors and textures.
    I've also given things they call 'hard munchables'... These are things they can suck on for a flavor but can't actually bite into. ..like celery or carrot sticks. . even salami sticks. Again watching for reaction.

    assuming bub's is able to sit and hold head up unassisted and is at the closer side of 6mths old....
    I startd DS on a chunk of steak. The next night he had a roast chicken dinner with us. The next day he shoved a handful of rice in his gob. There was no stopping my DS!
    We have egg allergies in our family. I tried DS on a well cooked plain 1 whole egg omlette whn he was 7mths old. Watched him like a hawk with phone in my hand ready to call ambo's. No reaction. Tried again a week later. no reaction. So then made a family zuchini slice and it is one of his fav foods.

    Have fun with it all
