    Thanks so much Erin!! I'm so glad we have you on the board

    I've got another question... is it ok for babies this age to have watermelon or strawberries?? I know it might sound silly; but for some reason I thought there was something to do with the seeds.... anyways, DF's mom tried to give Sophie a chunk of watermelon and I ki-boshed (sp??? ) that idea, but she got all offended and told me I was being over the top... I figured you ladies (especially Erin) would know best!

    I most certainly do not know best! I just use google and like to talk a lot

    Wholesomebabyfood.com is my go-to source for all questions food. Strawberries can be awesome for LOs as they are a great source of Vit C and they are super tasty but they are amongst the most commonly allergenic fruits. I'm personally avoiding them for at least a few more months. I *had* an allergy to peaches, apples, pears, cherries, and plums so I'm avoiding those too. Oddly enough my allergy to those fruits appeared when I was 23 and disappeared completely when I got pregnant. Still, I'm being careful. Cooking fruits often reduces/eliminates the allergenic effect. It did for me. I cooked eat apple pie but not fresh apples. So, you could simmer a whole bunch of strawberries and then freeze them in cubes.

    Watermelon should be fine. It's easy enough to remove the seeds or get the seedless kind. Wholesomebabyfood.com says melon may cause a slight rash due to it's acidity. I've been keeping an eye out for organic melons at the store but haven't seen any yet. I can't wait to give T cantaloupe! It's one of my personal favorites!

    I've been warned about the allergy possibility with them. It's fairly common for young kids and babies to have issues. I do want to try them on DS soon so that I know if there's an issue or not before I go home at the end of June (cause my parents will probably end up giving him those things since they eat a ton of that stuff).

    I love that wholesomebabyfood site!

    Yeah, mango is a messy PITA. It is sooooo good though. So, it's worth the sticky fingers
