First Foods: Baby Mum-Mums

This is the first in a series of posts regarding "first foods" for babies that are on a gluten-free diet.  With our first I had no idea where to start when looking to find such options.  Hopefully this will help to save you some of the time I put into my search!

Before I even became pregnant with our first child we had decided that our children would remain gluten-free until they were old enough to verbally express how they were feeling.  I'd much rather have my child express that her tummy hurts or show me the rash that is bugging her than have to go on a witch hunt to try to figure out why she's suddenly so cranky.

So, when Mercy hit about 5 months old I started keeping my eyes peeled for gluten-free teething biscuits and starter foods.  I was dismayed to discover that all of the ones that I saw my friends pulling out of their diaper bags for their babies contained gluten.  Arrowroot biter biscuits were out, as were those little Gerber puff things that come in a tall yellow container.  About the time she hit 6 months I was thrilled to discover Baby Mum-Mums at our local Winco. Mercy plowed through who knows how many boxes of them by the time she hit 16 months or so and moved on to other things.

Baby Mum-Mum Original Flavor

Baby Mum-Mums are made with japonica rice, come in three flavors, and are free of most common allergens.  

Baby Mum-Mums also dissolve quickly and are most definitely the least "chokey" finger food that I have introduced to my babies prior to their first birthdays.  And, unlike most gluten-free baby and toddler foods, they are now available in many mainline grocery stores.  We always have at least one or two boxes in our pantry!
