My daughter is 8 months old and only has 2 teeth. She is currently eating stage 2 foods. We've tried giving her puffs for the longest time and she really likes them and looks like she is chewing them, but occasionally they get caught on the back of her tongue and she starts to choke. It makes me so nervous. This same thing happened with stage 3 food when I tried it. It had chunks of rice and veggies in it and she started to choke a little. When did you start your baby on stage 3 or start giving small amounts of table food?Answer Question

Skip stage 3. Toddlers choke on it because they don't learn the difference between the pureed part and chunks. Go straight to soft table foods.

I never used baby food. You can start solids at 6 months. Fork mash food and allow the baby to feed itself. If the baby can't feed itself then the baby isn't ready for solids. I didn't spoonfeed my kids.
