  • No purees just tablefood in manageable pieces or fork mashable. No cereal. No purees. Easy, practically free, tasty, and no fuss. baby led solids particularly Gil Rapelys article.

  • Mine ate what we ate. Just mashed. It did mean we'd have peas for three days in a row, potatoes for three days in a row, and so on but that was no big deal.

  • Avocado and baked sweet potato is soft and healthy and perfect. I agree with AmileeGirl.

  • My 11 month old has no teeth and eats apples whole! Teeth are not required. I have given her whole apples since the start 7 1/2 months. at first she didn't get much but still enjoyed, but now makes short work of it. She eats corn on the cob and devastates plums. The can accomplish quite a lot the more the practice.

  • My boyfriend bought a cook book that included some great recipes for baby food that he whipped up for our little man. It included a good chicken noodle soup recipe, that we ate and blended it up for him. And also a great applesauce recipe. it also included a bolognese and squash recipes for baby food.
