Is too much yogurt a bad thing?

We're doing BLW with some success but his favourite has to be yogurt....we give him some after his dinner (which he's gummed his way through) and he loves it? Is this okay?
Also I've been buying the Rachel little organics, but I've read on here just to give full fat natural yogurt with some fruit puree, <thicko face> but what do you mean by fruit puree? Does that mean I blend fruit or buy it? Sorry that does sound like a total numpty question. In my defence I haven't slept for bloody months confused

DD2 lived, literally on yoghurt from 5.5 months.

She fell off the graph, wouldn't take a bottle, yoghurt became, with the drs. blessing her formula top up.

And how I got to go out in an evening as she'd have yoghurt and juice.

People worry because commercial kids yoghurts are often sweetened.

You need to read labels and make an informed choice.

Just read the sugar content in yoghurts thats all.

I just give plain yog (not flavoured or sweetened) and don't bother adding fruit. 7m old DS can't get enough of it! Maybe fruit puree means like the Ellas kitchen things here

Ds is a yoghurt monster. You can get various yoghurts for babies that have no sugar eg the Rachels ones, also Yeo Valley, Plum and Ella's Kitchen all do yoghurts that are literally just full fat yoghurt with fruit puree in them - this is all I give to ds, he loves them.

Thanks all I've stocked up. Rachel's on offer at Tesco smile

I give my 8 month old natural or greek yoghurt, sometimes with a bit of either a Cow and Gate fruit pot, or an Ella's fruit pouch.

I give DS Greek yoghurt (so it doesn't dribble off the spoon) with fruit mixed in - usually actual fruit, not purée.

Fruit purée meaning collapse som apple pear berries etc by cooking over a low heat, mash smooth. I find over-ripe mango or pear doesn't even need cooking. Berries might need to be blended to get smooth. Freeze it in small ice cubes and drop defrosted cube into natural yoghurt. Petit filous do a natural fromage frais but can't swear it's not sugary. Plum also do a low sugar baby yoghurt. That said I always used little stars until ds was over 1 then switched to petit filous or supermarket own brand fromage frais as little stars aren't much better sugar wise.

DD also loves yoghurt and it is occasionally used to disguise a range of other foods that she otherwise rejects I just have a big tub of plain Greek style in my fridge at all times. Don't bother with the fruity or sweetened ones as she just loves the plain stuff! I also wondered if it was ok for her to have so much, in terms of the amount of cows milk she'd be consuming.
