Ok so I have been really good about the 'safe' foods list for my 7 month old. But at a family christmas party I caught my Aunt giving my baby an orange. I was upset about it because I told her she couldn't have any of the food at her house but she is a rule breaker.... any way she didn't react to it at all so does that mean that oranges are safe for my little one this young??/

remember that at these family events MANY of us have been there with the family member who "knows better" than you, and will sneak the baby bites of what ever. Best thing is to not leave the baby unattended.... but if the baby was given citrus and you saw no reaction that's a good thing, but keep in mind that citrus does make the poop and pee more acidic and you will need to change the diaper more often to avoid a rash.
