    What do you guys think of feeding cold cuts to baby? My guy is 9 months and on three meals a day. I'm trying different ways to get meat into him, and wondering about cold cuts? We have something called "natural meats" something like that. It's made with real meat, salt water, and lemon juice". The sodium is a bit high, but not terrible (off note, the sodium on baby food jars I have are higher!!!).

    Anyways, wondering what thoughts are?

    Are cold cuts like cold meats? Like ham etc? If they're like the packaged sliced meats we have over here, they're def too salty for a baby under one. One slice of ham is like their whole days salt allowance.

    Sorry if I've got it wrong as to what cold cuts are!!

    If your on about ham etc then same as above.. Mega amounts of salt in there.

    You can always try a bit of chicken you have cooked yourself?
