But when I was on the phone with my sister and my nephew (13mnths old) and I were having lunch he was making happy squeals. She asked what he was happy about, so I told her I was sharing my curry with him. (she told me he can eat anything and likes to share)
She got upset and said you can't give babies that!
I won't again, I mean it's her kid. But it was just couscous and lentils, I didn't think I was doing anything wrong.
I gave my ds whatever I ate when he was this age, he didn't like spicy food. He says (now) it hurts his tongue. So I never gave it to him. I just gave me nephew a tiny bit and he loved it so I gave him more.
He cried when I wouldn't give him any more of it actually.
My son has been eating hot sauce on practically everything since he was two. If they like it, why not?
Spice won't hurt a baby. I wouldn't give them anything with the name "hell sauce" or anything like that, but regular everyday spices are good. I don't know where people got the notion that babies don't like flavor...that boggles my mind.
I dont think so? I mean as long as they arent having a bad experience then I see no issue. If the baby is screaming because of the spiciness of it then I would say maybe you shouldnt until they can handle it better but really I have never heard a Dr. say this.
