    @T.H.O.U.: my chart really shows the protein to be pretty much the same in all Greek yogurts so I'm not concerned.

    As for the live cultures, I'm really introducing the yogurt for the dairy. I'll look into the live cultures aspect.

    @bluestriped bee: have you looked at these? I haven't seen them so not sure how hard they would be to find.

    @bluestriped bee: Look at the comparison I just posted. I think because the first 2 ingredients of that pouch is a puree, it probably contains very very little greek yogurt. Which is ok if youre just trying to introduce a bit of dairy to them. But I would consider that much more a puree pouch than greek yogurt (bad marketing on the label

    But yes, also look into the live and active cultures. Thats basically the "good stuff" of yogurt that you want to help with the digestive "gut". But again, that may not be your priority right now.

    @bluestriped bee: If all you care about is straight up introducing dairy and shelf stable, I would just get the Earth's Best Sesame Street Yogurt Smoothies. They have less sugar than the ones you posted and are easy to find.

    @T.H.O.U.: the chobani needs to be refrigerated, I believe. I will look into some over the counter baby probiotics since I loaded up on some shelf stable yogurt found on amazon. When I can, I do grab some Siggi's Greek yogurt that was suggested in one of the threads. It has low sugar content.

    (ETA: Yes, it was Mrs.Microscope's recommendation that made me look at Siggi's. )

    @LBee: thanks I'll look into that.

    @Mrs. Microscope: the siggis is amazing (4%). I was hoping someone would mention it. I had a moment at work a few weeks ago when I randomly read the label and explained to my coworkers "guys only 8 grams!!!" My nutritionist buddy perked up. Too bad they are$$ but worth it imo

    @bluestriped bee: I second the Siggi's recommendation. It has a very different flavor that takes some getting used to. But it has such a lower sugar content that the others now taste ridiculous. I think there is a chobani option that has super low sugar. Its hard to find.

    @agold: Yeah, it appears my local Target (not local grocery stores... I don't have a Whole foods that is super close) has Siggi's. I already picked up some and the babies seem to like it. I got the mixed berry and the strawberry rhubarb... funny that the babies had rhubarb before I did.

    I'm all out of them now, but the next time I go to Target, I'll pick some more up.
