  • You can give her just about any fruit except for strawberries (Allergies) in her net pacifier.
    I give my kids goldfish carckers, cheerios, chex cereal, Graham crackers, toast cut into bite size pieces with a little butter, Tortilla with Peanut Butter on it for my oldest. I put PB on one half, fold the tortilla in half and tear it up into bite size pieces. Corn, Green Beans, Peas are also a good finger food. You can pretty much give them anything that easily mashes when they chew it. Anything that can be cut into small bites that are easy to grab and chew.

  • That young my kids didn't get anything but breast milk... But once we started with finger foods I did peas, small cooked carrot, cooked apple & banana pieces, shredded chicken, and cereal like Whole Grain Cheerios.

  • My baby LOVED cherrios. LOL we would put just about anything in mesh nets.. we'd freeze all sorts of fruits and veggies, then put them in the net. its a mess, but she loved it! LOL

  • Mine were on table food by 8 months - whatever we were eating, just cut up in small pieces.

  • Try small cut up pieces of banana and avocado. Both are pretty easy on the tummy, and are soft.

  • By eight months my daughter was eating scrambled eggs and toast. I couldn't keep her full.
