  • Go ahead and start! My son started to refuse baby food at about that age so I just started shredding/mashing whatever we were eating and he loved it!

  • Whenever you want. I never gave my boys pureed "baby" food and they started around 7-8 months.

  • you can start giving him small bits of whatever you are eating. just make sure its something that you can gum and not to spicy.. you can do a test and put what you would give him in your mouth and see if you can mash it with you tongue againstthe top of your mouth.  a good start would be green beans, banana, Cheetos, the Gerber puffs, cheerios.

    Right now! You can break off bits of just about anything you are eating. Break off a piece the size of a small pea and put it in her mouth, then put some on her tray and let her feed herself. small pieces of steamed veggies, ripe banana. cooked chicken breast etc.

  • At 6 months. Babies never need jar baby food, cereal, puffs, ect. They can start on regular food at 6 months.
