The sugar free jelly (or sugar free anything is usually full of artificial sweeteners) I would prefer to give natural sugar. Try her with normal jelly, children love to experiment with different textures as well as flavours
At 9 months I would imagine she has already tried loads of things. I wouldn't have liked to give my DS just milk at this age He would have screamed blue murder if I hadn't fed him proper food!
freakypenguin - can I ask WHY you wouldn't give them to a baby? I am not saying you should, I am just trying to find out everything before I start giving it to my DD. Hope that doesn't sound rude, I am just inetrested
