My daughter is 9 months old, and she does hold an interest in food, but she is still primarily breastfeed. She sits down with us at every meal with a plate of her own, so she can try "adult food" at her own leisure. She already has her upper and lower incisors, so she can chew fairly well. Mostly she is really into food that she can hold - like carrots, mushrooms, potatoes, pretzels and crackers.
All in all though she still isn't really interested in adult food. She loves some things, like grapes, limes and french fries, but she always turns back to Mommy's breast for the real meal.
I don't want to try and rush her, but those teeth hurt (ouch!). Is there anything I can do to encourage her to try more solids?
