I want to make vegetable soup for my baby but I'm not sure if I should add spices to it. He will be 7 months on Jan. 23rd. Our ped said it was ok to give him pretty much anything now, including a little bit of spices but I'm still nervous. He just gets so bored with the same veggies. I even tried mixing recipes like butternut squash with apples and rice but he still will only eat it for like a day then I have to wait awhile.
I am sure it is fine because he has already tried some bean stew that my husband made and I know that had some spices in it such as bay leaf, a vegetable seasoning, paprika, onions and garlic in it. I know he was ok but I just can't get over being a little nervous. Oh and my mother-in-law gave him homemade sauerkraut which he loved. Mommy didn't like the after effects in his diaper though. LOL
Any other moms out there using some spices already in their foods?
