I called my sister, the nutritionist and nursing student- no answer.
I called my Mom and she sounded iffy.
Tara calls me back and all I heard was Renal Failure. What's a renal??
Well, the question has been answered, thanks to BabyCenter.com and their weekly e-mails.
According to the chart below, Jonah can have yogurt and cheese at the age of 8 months, which he is.
I'm shocked actually at the things Jonah can have. I thought he couldn't have meat until 1 year, but if I turn it into pate' he can eat it now. The same with eggs (minus the whites). Interesting. I'll have to post some pictures of Jonah eating his new foods soon. It's pretty funny to watch.
