  • If your just starting then start him slow on fruit and cereal. One new food every 3 days to avoid allergy's. You can also give him veggies. Give him the bottle first and then the food about an hour later and let him tell you when he's full. You can also give him protien such as pasta and meat. My daughter is nine months old also and eats everything. If you want to let him sample things on your plate, walmart sells net bags with a teething ring on the end that you can put whole foods in. just remember the tree day rule for EVERYTHING. That way you'll be able to tell if he's having a reaction.

  • Also...not peanut butter!! The allergic reaction to peanut butter can be so intense that baby's die from it. Most women wait a few years to give any nuts.
