  • My daughter is 9 months also. Whatever we eat, I blend or smash up really good. She eats eggs, pudding, jello, potatoes, peas, carrots, and pasta to name a few. My daughter doesn't have any teeth either. Those baby mum mums in the baby food section are really good. They seem hard, but dissolve in the mouth quickly. They are healthy too because they're made of rice.

  • My son is the same age and we've done mostly table foods, no jars.
    I do sometimes give him baby yogurt or mashed/purees that I have made myself.
    Regardless of teeth babies chew very well. You can give your girl just about anything you are eating, avoiding common allergens(like dairy, nuts, etc.)

    Some of my son's favorite table foods are beans, ham, potatoes, green beans and lately, frozen peas.

  • That is one of the concerns when talking about starting babies too early on solids, that they will not get enough BM or formula because they will get full on solids. I give my 11 mo old his bottle before meals. He takes 3 to 4, 8oz bottles per day. I feed him anything we are eating that can be mashed either with their gums or with a fork or put into a blender (except raw fish or deli meat). He also has no teeth.
