can i feed spinach and tomatos to my 6 month old baby?
Generally, tomatoes are considered very acidic and best for babies who are 10 months or older, and who have had most other foods already. Cooked tomatoes are less acidic, but I would not give them as one of the first foods - its much better to wait awhile. Symptoms that a food is too acidic for your baby is tummy upsets or rashes on the face and/or bottom.
Spinach is also a veggies that is usually recommended to wait until 8-10 months for. It is very hard to digest and usually causes gas in babies. Also, it has a higher concentration of nitrates than other veggies, which is bad for any baby under 6 months, and the longer you wait the better.
Some good foods for a baby who has just started solids are: green beans, peas, winter squash, pumpkin, sweet potato, apples, pears, bananas, peaches, avocados, carrots. If your son has just started on solid foods, you might want to let him try most of these first before moving on to foods that are harder to digest.
