Have You Ever Heard This About Gerber 2nd Foods Amp Berries

My daughter is still eating the 1st foods, we're almost done going through them all and she's definitely ready for the 2nd foods. I'm not too familiar with the 2nd foods flavors but I know there are a couple with strawberries in them and my mother-in-law said that you aren't supposed to give babies anything with berries for a really long time, she made it sound like you have to wait a loooong time and that doesn't make sense to me because why would they make a Gerber 2nd food (which is for babies who can sit by themselves unassisted) with berries in them if it weren't for babies that age? She must be mistaken right?

haha, Impatient we are both posting threads about baby food. I have never heard anything about berries...I am interested to see what everyone has to say.

I think maybe its because it can be a more allergenic food?? Wholesome baby food (dot) com says that strawberries have the potential to be a more allergeic food.. if you want to try them go for it and if she doesnt show any reactions then you are all set.

So I'll just make sure that when we do that we'll do it alone for a week straight and watch out for signs. I'm planning on doing that for any new foods that they have with the 2nd foods anyway.

just watch the baby very carefully and be prepared to go to the ER if you notice a rxn... but you should be prepared for this with any new food, especially if allergies run in your family. I was extra ready when I fed strawberries or peanut b___ter.

I've heard that too and noticed it as well. I make my own food but I go through the isles and check out the mixes (I know I'm a cheater!)
