When did your child quit eating baby food?

My DD is almost 10 months old. She has a great appetite, and eats a HUGE variety of foods, but it bored of jar food, and refuses it. Just wondering when your babies did this. I'm not worried or unhappy about the situation. Just curious! :)

  • I stupidly tried baby food...I should have went right to homemade. LOL I did jar for about a month..he then refused it, he was 5 months. He went to homemade then. By 9 months, he ate everything I did minus the seasonings and grease. Like even could hold and eat a kids burger from a restaurant. Of course, he had all his teeth too.

  • Yeah, she eats everything! It's nuts! She loves meat, but I'm hesitant to give her too much.

  • My kid is 6, and still eats the baby food jars. He still is breastfed too. I think when he is ready then he can stop. I wouldn't mind doing it a couple more years. 10 is definitely my cut off.

  • My first ate jarred food until he was two or so and my second is 9 months and still eating jarred. She only has two teeth so I don't see much table food besides mashed potatoes and maybe very small bites of bread in the near future.

  • both of mine started on normal food early, i dont do the jars so they got fresh purees. My daughter never liked puree so she has been eating normal table foods since she was 7 months old. Teeth are not rellevant, they dont chew with their teeth anyway, look into baby led weaning for more information.
