    black pudding safe for a baby?

    i say no. Someone else clearly thought otherwise and fed it to my 5 month old daughter. And i can't find anything on google to ease my mind.
    My girlfriend is visiting her family and she text me to tell me my little girl was eating a fryup. i mean, have a word, am i supposed to be impressed with that?
    i was actually quite disgusted. Tomotoes and mushrooms i can deal with if they are fresh and not tinned. but blackpudding......all i can think of is all that blood and salt.

    Are you a Geordie there like by any chance?

    @OP, guess no one can say for certain alas but not sure i'd be willing to feed a 5 month old black pudding and i do eat the stuff myself :?

    my god thats bad , loads of salt and fat not to mention babys stomachs arnt developed for that kind of food , i wouldnt worry 2 much as it probs wont hurt , but i wouldnet let it happen again x

    I wouldn't worry too much - the flavours and the seasoning alone would be too much for the babys palette to accept, and she would probably reject it. As a one off (although you obviously know your G/F shouldn't have let it happen) the worst that will probably happen, is that your baby will have the most disgusting nappies for a day or so, or she will throw it back up - hopefully over the people who fed it to her.
    When i was out of my eyesight, my SIL knocked a bit of dilute red wine down my (then 5 month old) daughters neck - and i was lucky...while she was still sitting on her lap, my baby barffed all over her!!!

    I'm with Jelli on this one don't worry to much but I wouldn't give it to her again. IMO the Iron in the black pudding may make her constipated for a few days. TBH there is a ton of research that shows it is better for the child to hold off weaning compleatly untill after 6 months now. I have to confess I didn't so this definatly isn't a preaching post. But if I were you I would make sure she down't have it again untill she can ask for it herself.

    yep i think it can be given once in like a few months or month but wouldnt give it like weekly or everyday.

    well thanks peeps. She has been eating baby jars and tins, rusks etc quite happily since 4 months, which i have been comfortable with. and when teeth appear she will be given fresh fruit and veg to chew on.
    I think i'm gonna let mum handle the next few nappies

    This is gonna make me sound like a right nag...but you might do better to avoid letting her 'chew' on fruit, even though they are natural sugars, veg sticks might be better and give the fruit as a puree with meal....(er ...i'll go now....:oops: )

    my 2 little girls loved freash fruit and veg to chew on it really helped her teeth to come through x

    I think its probably got a high salt content and quite fatty.
    I'm vegetarian,but I was on the understanding that from 4 mths you start introducing baby rice,veg and fruit puree and by around 6mths you start with meat,although some baby foods from 4mths contain meat like the jars or dried mix. I don't get it really whats in some of the baby foods,Hipp Organic used to have a Peach & Honey dessert in a jar, don't know if they still do as my 1st I only bought jar stuff occasionly and my 2nd she wouldn't touch anything in a jar at all. But if you look at a jar of honey and other info sources it says not to give a baby under 12 mths honey.

    A bit early, but no real danger. People are sooo particular nowadays. If this was say the 50's no-one would bat an eyelid. No harm will come of it.

    Don't worry bout it love - hey I know plenty of people who talk like that I they would be insulted if they were told they were being offensive! You just cannae win!

    OP - I would agree with the most posts, not an ideal weaning food, but certainly no real harm - the nappies willbe a cracking colour though! Enjoy!

    If you're going to give a baby a banana make sure you get someone else to change the nappies for a while! (Have you heard of the expression "exploding nappy"?:giggle: )

    I think you more have to worry about her choking on the stuff? About 6-7 months minimum before I gave my little ones anything solid to chew on. Your totally right about too much salt but a one off won't kill her.

    BTW cut grapes in half seemingly grapes and burst balloons are top choking hazards in little ones!
