I really really wouldn't let her have them. Instant noodles have soooo much sodium in them it's hard for baby to digest, even if she's been doing okay. You can make your own unsalted noodles, cut up small and mushy. My babe eats baby spaghetti, it has little noodles in it but it's super healthy and he can handle it okay with 1 1/2 teeth. It's made by Earth's Best.

make your own noodle soup.. with vegetables in it..
keep the empty two minute noodle packets to begin with, so that they think its two minute noodles.

its important for babys to eat nutritious foods, instant noodles have basically no nutrient value and should definatly be put into the 'occasional treat food' catagory. How about rice or oatmeal porridge, or fruit?

The brand is Earths Best, Babies 'R' Us carries is. It's called Spaghetti with cheese, it's a nine month (stage 3) jar. Gerber makes pasta primevera and mac n cheese, & earths best also makes Baby Chicken Noodle Soup and Chicken & Stars.
