They want you to get more iron in you babies. Although if you are stil BF then they will be getting plenty of iron.

Hi do you mean FF here? I thought it was because the iron supplies in the mothers milk depleted after 6 months?
f

No I meant breast feeding. Apparently the iron in breastmilk is more bio available than in formula, meat etc... The Kelly mom website posted by someone has great info. Yes the recommendations in canada now are that meat can be one of the first foods. I totally agree that there is so much conflicting info out there. In the end you have to decide for yourself what you think is best for your LO! Good luck!

That is so true.. in my job a colleague once said to me 'you can never judge a previous therapist's work as they were doing what they thought was best with the information they had available to them at the time'. It's the same for me and my LO.. i make sure i know all the information and make choices based on that!

I gave my son meat from around 6 months.  I cooked it until very soft (often in a slow cooker) with plenty of veggies and then pureed all together.  As he got onto more textures, I then mixed in some of the chopped veggies to the puree and pretty soon I'd give him things like stewed beef as lumps for him to gum on.
Here's my blog which is focussed on simple food for babies, toddlers and families http://mamacook.blogspot.com/
