  • OOH have so much fun with this! Buy a food processor! Mush up some yummy goodness for your little one so he/she can taste your favs!

  • Teeth don't matter. He can gum it. I always said, "If my toothless grandmother can eat it, so can they."

    Just give him diced pieces of what you're eating...provided he's already been tried on it and isn't sensitive to it! lol

    This is about when we started...and they were completely on table foods at 9 months.

  • we chewed up meat for my son and then gave it to him so he could start learning to chew. very tiny pieces. soft vegies like carrots, peas, etc

  • cooked veggies, small chunks of well cooked meat. my 6 1/2 month old is toothless and has no problems gumming finger foods like raisins and cheerios.
