This question's been on my mind these couple of days. Not sure if I should let my 9 month old son try durian, because it's heaty and very sweet. But, my husband and I like to eat durian, so it would seem a capital crime if our son doesn't. And it's an acquired taste, right? Plus, now is the time to let him try all sorts of different foods for the different tastes and textures. So, I think a little bit would be ok? What do you all think? Yay or nay?

I personally did not introduce durian to my son when he was only 9 month old, like what you said, cos it is too sweet. His 1st try on durian was around 15 or 16 mths old. =)

my dear daughter first try durian when she was around 7months old.. just abit for her to try.. she seems fine with it, but doesn't really like it.. haha
Nope! Durian is high in sugar content!
i think it is fine as long as it isnt a daily or frequent affair. pin loves durian!
xicloudix, if at 8 months old, he only wanted to drink milk, and not take semi-solids, did that mean your son put on weight very slowly? Cuz milk only isn't adequate nutrition for kids once they pass 6 months of age. How old is your son now?
My boy was already showing an interest in what we 'grownups' eat very early on. He'd watch us, he'd drool, he'd wanna put things in his mouth. So we started him on rice cereal mixed with milk. Then later, slowly more and more - I've let him try cucumber (only once), papaya, banana, avocado, apple, pear, jackfruit (just once, too), potato, cheddar cheese, chicken, egg yolk, broccoli, beef...He doesn't like anything with beef in it. Maybe the taste is too strong for him.
Are strawberries, oranges and grapes ok for my son now? And what vegetables would you all recommend I let my son try? I'm not giving him much in the way of green leafy vegetables, only 'sweeter' veggies like carrots and sweet potato. But I do want to start giving him more green veggies, so I'd like some recommendations and suggestions. Thanks!

For green veggies, you can give things like kailan, brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, long beans, zucchini and peas.
