    I introduced it about 8 months and just full fat natural or greek. As PP's have already mentioned, I would be wary of the sugar content in flavoured yogurts.

    Ditto the plain greek yoghurt.
    Yoghurt specifically for babies could have more sugar, be more expensive, and in my opinion, if you start with plain old yoghurt, bub won't know any different. Same applies to yoghurt with "no added sugar" but sweetened with fruit.

    Another vote here for natural greek yoghurt. It's.

    Important to read the ingredients because most yoghurt has sugar added to it, yes even the baby yoghurt, which is completely unnecessary in most cases.

    Even some of the greek yoghurts have it added. I use farmers union natural greek yoghurt. Ds loves it and dh doesn't complain and he is used to the sweetened ones.

    I would say - watch the sugar content. The kids/baby yoghurts generally have way more sugar in them than plain full fat yoghurt. Just remember that there's no need for a specialised 'baby' yoghurt, it's just market segmentation. Break the market into smaller segments with specialised products, and you can sell them for a lot more money,
    ^^^ this! The valia ones are full of sugar.

    I had a look at the shops and noticed the vaalia ones were full of sugar! I was so torn because part of me said that even though it's packed with sugar it has been specially formulated for babies whereas the Greek one was better for them but not necessarily for young babies.

    Wish I had of read this thread before I went shopping. I will definitely be getting the Greek in next time!

    My boys have all had greek yoghurt from 6 months. I make my own and then add fruit puree to it.

    Honestly. . my dd liked this vaalia ones but she's also liked greek yogurt with flavours mixed in. I make my own. And I think with the rest of her diet at the time not really having much sugar it was okay in the small amounts.
    Also I know you've had issues with constipation for her so you want to be careful with dairy stuff as well. It sounds counterproductive but the sugar will help bowel movements.
    Don't feel bad about it. ...

    I imagine the 'specially formulated for babies' stuff is probably hype!

    I just gave my babies plain greek yoghurt. I think it's very good for them actually.

    Not probably hype, most definitely hype! I wonder what babies ate in the days before 'specially formulated for babies' stuff? The poor things...
