I had thought I read somewhere, that infants wernt supposed to have tomato products, as there was a high chance of allergy related to tomatoes. Am I going nuts? I just noticed that on the "gerber beef dinner" intended for 6 month olds, that it has tomato paste in it. SO many times I was going to give dd some of my pasta and sauce on her tray, but didnt.... Sooooo, can I give her tomatoes or not?!?!

I dont think they are allergenic but Tomatos are very acidic and they are hard on the stomach therefore they arent reccomended for babies younger then a year old. With that said I have given my dd tomato sauce and she likes it, the first time I gave it to her she was 9 months old. It doesnt seem to bother her and now at 10.5 months old she eats it around once a week if not more.

I was giving dd spaghetti and lasagna meals from Gerber by 7-8 mos. She did fine with them.

i think the babyfood with tomato in it is ok... but i wouldn't give spaghetti sauce or tomato soup or anything... my mil used to give it to my dd and it would make her poor b___t so raw because of all the acid.
