    Thankyou both.

    There Aren't any family allergies. I was surprised you can give peanut butter as well.

    Why about things like smoked salmon? I've looked in
    Books but it doesn't Mention things like this.

    I'm not 100% but I think so-just be careful with how much salt there is in it. As long as there's no family allergies you can give pretty much anything!

    I never actually thought about family allergies . As Mrs R says just check the salt content because a lot of fish is cured with salt . Its a pity books dont mention it because prawns and salmon must be so healthy !

    we gave little bits of smoked salmon early and prawns. He was fine but he did have a pretty bad egg allergy which is now no eggs in diet. So glad it's going so well :):):)

    Oh me I made fish pie yesterday for her and didn't think of checking the salt content of the haddock?!?

    I've never tried prawns, did you try them hopeful?
    I can't give Emily eggs till she's over one as I had a bad egg allergy

    No I didn't try tem pinky, think they were a Bit small For
    Him to pick up at the moment, and then I realised he doesn't have any teeth and they were quite tough!!I'm sure the fish pie would have been fine as long as you didn't add extra salt xx
