My baby is seven months with two teeth. His pediatrician said he could start on finger foods. So, I've been giving him mashed potatoes, fruits, vegetables, sliced and cut up turkey, bread, chicken noodle, beans, rice.. stuff like that. We were at a family luncheon when one of my family members told me he's too small to eat that kind of stuff. She told me that I was going to hurt his digestive track. She's like an old school nurse who wanted me to put oatmeal in his bottle when he was little so I didn't really believe her, but then someone else told me the same thing.
Am I in the wrong? Am I moving him too quickly?
