My daughter is 8.5months old. I myself eat lots of raw food and I of course want to give her the healthiest of food. She has been a purely breast milk fed baby up until a few months ago when I started steaming and blending organic yams, squash, zuchinni, and carrots and also feeding her bananas and avocados. In baby books, I have read about iron-fortified cereal, and I am wondering how I can provide this need for iron intake without buying a box of processed baby cereal.
I am also wondering what else to feed her. I was thinking maybe some oatmeal might be next.
I have also heard mixed things about giving her only raw food, as I have been told that its too harsh on their little digestive systems.
What advice do you have on providing her food for her iron requirements, also what else is good to feed her, and what is your opinion on raw food and little babies?
