yes, of course!

TrinityRhino Wed 24-Sep-08 17:11:58

yes of course you can smile

hillbilly Wed 24-Sep-08 17:13:03

are they not a choking hazard?

Of course they're not a choking hazard am guessing the baby in question is more or less on normal meals anyway

no thats grapes
peas are mushy, when they pick them up they squish

mabanana Wed 24-Sep-08 17:15:41

are your peas as big as grapes?

belgo Wed 24-Sep-08 17:15:56

yes of course, they are too small to choke on. Let the baby pick them on, great for developing finger movement.

This isn't a joke thread? Oh dear.....

Thanks everyone - ds happily munching on them now. He only has 1 tooth but manges to eat most things!

hillbilly Wed 24-Sep-08 17:26:40

Well I'm so sorry for asking Trafficcone - excuse me!

belgo Wed 24-Sep-08 17:27:25

glad he's enjoying them.

Trafficcone, I was still worried about peas when ds was 1 - due to paranoid book I had which made just about everything not pureed seem potentially lethal - and you get all this advice for babies on safety, hygiene etc then half the time nobody thinks to tell you when you can stop worrying about it! - there's always loads of niggles left about really specific things, aren't they, hillbilly...

I worried about giving peas too! I gave them to my ds at 9 months but he's 13 months now and I still squish them a bit so they are not so round and easy to choke on! pfb!

DD adores peas...Shes been having them since she was 6months old.

Peas are a good source of nutrition for 11m old and fabby green and encourage pincer grip.

You should give peas a chance.
