lots of questions about solids

my son is 6 mos old and we've been feeding him solids but i decided since he's eating well that i would start grinding his food. i was just wondering if these couple things were ok for him to eat and if you have any suggestions on what else he could eat. The two items i had questions on were if it were ok to feed him Zuccini, avacado and mashed potatos? or is it too early?? What are some other things i could feed him?

  • Personally, I fed my kids whatever we were eating. Unless you have food allergies in your family, I would only wait on honey and maybe peanut butter until they were a year old. My kids ate spaghetti, eggs, any veggie or fruit, meats, pancakes, etc. The only problems I ever had were with my second born. He has very sensitive skin and stomach and the more acidic foods still affect him and give him a terrible diaper rash.

  • My daughter ate whatever I was having at that age. She started eating regular table food at the age of 5-6months, she refused to eat the baby food. So I chopped and pureed everything.
