Good things to feed my 10 month dd

My daughter is 10 months and baby food just isnt enough. I've tried noodles, bananas, little pieces of green beans, and mashed potatos. I have been around babies my whole life but I'm scared to give her solids. She chokes and gags when she eats unless its baby food or really soft or really tiny pieces that she can't pick up I have to feed her. She has a baby well check up at the end of the month so I will ask the doctor why she does this but till then any ideas what I can try cuz she's starting to refuse the baby food.

  • Check with your pediatrician about what foods she is allowed to eat (I can't remember what the recommended schedule is), but here are some ideas:

    Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat with fruit, yogurt plain or with fruit (I liked making my own fruit purees and adding it to greek yogurt), bread plain or with a little smear of cream cheese, soup (tomato, split pea, minestrone, black bean, etc.), pasta with any kind of sauce and tiny bits of cooked veggies and/or meat, pancakes plain or with anything added (my son loves pumpkin pancakes), scrambled eggs or omlets with pureed/finely chopped spinach (my 3 yr old still prefers "green eggs"), rice with broccoli and cheese (you can start by cooking until mushy and mash or chop really fine), meatloaf or meatballs, etc.

    And don't worry if she's still having trouble with solid foods. I think a lot of 10 month old are still learing how to eat. Just give her little chances to keep learning.

  • Thank you, I spoke with her doc and I showed him with a little piece of bread. Here she just has a bad gag reflex and she's actually not choking. He told me to try little bigger pieces slowly.
