  • I started with those gerber puffs, they melt fast.

  • cut up tiny peices of avocado, banana, really at that age they can eat whatever you're eating with exception of allergy foods such as eggs, strawberries, milk, wheat...if he's never had it then just start with the puffs or tiny tiny pieces of the other...good luck. my DD is 10 mo and eats what we are within reason. Organic multigrain Blueberry waffles for bkfast, turkey sticks and veges for lunch and whatever we're having for dinner.

  • no tofu or cheese until after a year and they're really not supposed to have eggs at all. you can go to and it gives you suggestions for all ages . good luck.

  • Keep in mind. that solids fed to babies before they turn 1 are for the experience of eating them, not for nutrition (a subject most doctors know nothing about). Great foods for a baby include avocado, baked sweet potato, oatmeal, pumpkin, pureed peas, etc. Jarred baby food tastes awful, is expensive, and you never really know what is in it.
    Be sure to avoid the allergy trigger foods. This is not a complete list: before age 1, no soy, dairy, wheat, citrus, egg white, strawberries; before age 2 no honey, chocolate, nuts.
    The best book on feeding babies, toddlers and their families is called Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron. You should be able to find it at your local library. There is some great information on the website:
