A 41-year-old member asked:

Could you know what the milestones of a 6 month old baby are?

Because implicit: memory begins at 5 months, learned behaviors begin at 6 months. Babies who fall asleep in their own cribs without a "sleep association" settle back to sleep if they night wake. Socially, they have stranger anxiety. They lift their arms to be picked up, effective non-verbal communication. They inhibit a behavior to "no" & re-direction. They babble in "strings" (da-da-da-da) & have a raking grasp.

6m=irritant congestn: A 6m kid will respond to cigarette smoke, hair spray, cleaning fumes, perfume etc. The same way you do except it is worse for them. The irritant quality often makes kids snooty & they have a hard time getting the stuff sneezed out since they have minimal sneezing power. Often these irritants stay weeks inside their nose unless you wash them out with saline.

Only if pureed: I wouldnt recommend it, but if you must, you need to make sure its puree'd and add a little bit of water. If your baby has already started eating vegetables then maybe. But you have to be very conservative when introducing or progressing to meats. I would hold off for now.
