My boy is 8.5 mths old and I have feed him salmon & threadfin in his porridge at alternate day, meaning my boy will be taking salmon either 3 or 4 days a wk, is it ok for baby or too much for him?
Cos I meet an auntie in NTUC while buying fish, she told me better not to give baby take salmon or cod fish not good for baby, can anyone advise? thanks..
I give my dear daughter cod every day since 6-7 months. Cod is fine n in fact one of the recommended first fish to start baby on.
what about salmon cos my boy doesn't take cod fish, he only like salmon n threadfin. So was it alrite to give him salmon 3 or 4 days a wk cos he seems fine to me n love salmon whenever it was added to his porridge..
The cod & salmon we normally buy from supermarket is FARMED. Google 'farmed fishes' & you will see why some people choose not to feed such fishes. The fishes grow in very packed environment, practically living in their own waste. Naturally, their toxin levels will be higher.
If you want to give salmon or cod, get wild salmon or cod. It's more expensive, easily double the price depending on season.
I do not give my son these 2 fishes at all. Mainly because salmon is too oily & they might not be able to digest well & wild cod is too expensive to feed regularly (sometimes when the adults have steamed cod, we do give him a pinch).
Even for threadfin, there's farmed & wild threadfin also. Normally the farmed threadfin costs around $23- 28 per kg. Wild ones will cost around $40/kg and are usually larger in size.
Empty vessels make the most noise
i tried giving my girl salmon few days ago n felt its super oily as well..n not too sure if the taste is too strong or too oily, she didnt seem to take much food compare to usual.
so stonston, what fish you give your son then? i read japanese recipe books say we can give tuna(fresh ones. not canned), salmon, sea bream, flatfish, and they only recommend to give cod fish after baby is 9-11mths old...
hmm, i always give pin salmon n threadfin.
she loves salmon (like mummy!).
just got this from the internet.

contain the highest amounts of mercury.
Salmon, contrary to popular belief, has lower levels of mercury than one typically thinks, as does tuna. Cold water fish have lower levels of mercury and also contain higher levels of Omega 3's.
salmon got mercury content anots???
baber also likes salmon coz its sweet when i steam it but since mum prefers threadfin i leave it to her
Wet market really depends. They usually have both, so do ask carefully. & if you search online for different btw farmed & wild salmon, you can spot the different through the looks of the head.
My son currently takes mixture of wild & farmed threadfin (easier on the pocket). Sometimes my mum gives him leather jacket as it's sweet.
& toxin level need not mean MERCURY only. There are many other toxins that can be found in fishes & ingested by us. Just do a search on farmed fishes & you'll find out more.
