  • I would think cheerios are too hard. I've been using Baby MumMums little rice cakes too.

  • A 7 month old can feed herself just about any food. Just mash a little with a fork and put it in front of her and let her feed herself. I wouldn't feed a baby that young beans, too hard to digest and swallow. Fruits, veggies, meats, brown rice, other whole grains.

  • cheerios have wheat, wheat is an allergy trigger food that should not be introduced before age 1.

  • 7 months? avocado, banana, peas, carrots, corn, peaches, pears, apples, plums - -- almost anything that can be cit into smallish pieces and mashed slightly. Eggs should probably be help off (egg whites are a high allergen food), right up there with peanut butter, strawberries, and citrus. Things with honey should be avoided until after 1 because of infant botulism.
    My kids loved mum-mums (baby rice crackers - dissolve in mouth with little to no mess) and gerber puffs. Gerber also makes yogurt melts - - the peach ones are good for kids under 1 who've had dairy products, but I probably wouldn't consider introducing them until closer to 9 months - same with yogurt and cheese.

  • teeth don't matter when introducing solid foods. As long as the food is cut into small pieces, it's good - - babies' gums are stronger than most people give them credit for :) And many babies do not get their first teeth until months after they've been eating solid food.
