I only use Threadfin for making baby porridge when my dds were between 6-24 months. They had Threadfin fish porridge almost daily before 5yrs.

Can also use Red Snapper fillet for a change.

Thread fin fillet is highly recommended by old folks for babies 6 mths onwards.
Cod fish, though rich in omega is not suitable for babies due to its oiliness and may not be digestible for some with weak tummy.

Hmmm, both my kids grew up with cod fish mashed and none the worse for wear. I had pre-checked with the paediatrician before feeding and never had negative feedback on codfish. I suspect the oiliness was not bothering my kids cos its natural? Anyway, I learn something new. Thanks. I also saw this thread on Motherhood which is similar to the original question so thought I'd share. http://singaporemotherhood.com/forum/th ... ridge.582/

To be safe, for babies from 6 months to 1 year old, thread fin is the only fish to be fed to them. After the babies reach 1 year old, you can feed them most of the fish available in the market, such as thread fin, salmon, cod, snapper etc.

I personally prefer thread fin to cod as the latter is usually fish-farmed and due to the feeds used, may contain excessive heavy metal while the former is mainly fished from the regional waters. A digression, thread fin from Malaysia costs more but tastes sweeter.

Hi

I use threadfin or cod fish. Meat is softer & fewer bones. red snapper's texture is coarse, not as tasty if u compare with the former. You can mesh pork or chicken for a change so that your toddler gets a variety. Sometimes I also put 田鸡 just for the taste.

I normally use threadfin but will give she yu if I am not able to buy threadfin. I also give frog legs. Kids are not into salmon or cod fish.
