  • You start them with tastings of table food when you feel that they are ready. When they can pick things up and put them in their mouth it is a good time to start finger foods (table food). Just do what comes naturally.

  • Neither of my boys ever had pureed food, so they started table food when they started solids. Both between 7-8 months.

  • Six months. We just mashed or pureed what ever vegetables or fruits we were eating.

  • 6 months - - mashed and pureed fruits and veggies with a 3-4 day wait in between each one. Both kids LOVED solid food and ate much more of it than I anticipated - - but I always nursed first and fed solids second to make sure they still got everything nutritionally that they needed. I used cereal with my first, only to find that it had zero nutrition. We skipped it after that.
