I found strawberries in babyfood I bought. I thought babies couldn't have strawberries until older?
Mostly safe to give: Years ago it was thought that delaying the introduction of certain foods would decrease the possibility of a child developing allergies. That is no longer the case.

Baby is well & happy: Smiling or laughing is a sign of content and in a baby, it suggests she is feeling well/happy.
