  • My kids never really used them. I used to just give the kids what ever we were eating. I do not think this is to early and it should be okay that this is all she really wants to eat.

    You could try cutting up bananas or other fruit into small pieces to see if she will eat that.

    Good Luck

  • No not at all ...My daughter started eating table food at 8 months and by 9 months all she ate was table food. In my opinion I don't recomend gerber graduates ...they just grossed me out the look & smell of them. I'd rather she ate what I cooked so I knew what was in the food.

  • I say don't waste you money on that. Just give your baby what you eat.
