  • My boy was just under a year when he discovered knawing on a baby back was well worth the work! LOL Then again, he had almost a full set of chompers.

  • my son Logan is 7months old and eats meat in jars or even if i make something that is meat and i know he can gum it. But most cases like 8 or 9months old, and depending how many teeth they have and how good they chew other things like Cheerios.

  • i've been a vegetarian for ten years, so it will probably be my husband who introduces and feeds meat

  • I fed all of my children real food right from the start. Not exclusively, however. My first one had colic, although it was so many years ago they didn't know what it was, and she would vomit everything she put down, breastmilk, formula, even meat based formula. The doctor said if I hadn't fed her the real food, she would have died. After her, I decided I wasn't taking my chances. All of my children are grown and they grew up healthy. No eating problems, no digestive problems. Think about it, before the age of formula, women who couldn't breastfeed, what did they give their babies?
