  • You never needed the jar food, actually. If they need purees, it's too early for solids.

    Dump the jars. Have fun!

  • My first son ate purees from 5 months until 10 months when he started eating table foods cut up into small pieces. My second son would scoul at all pureed baby food and didn't eat anything other than BM until 9 months when I started giving him finger foods.

  • Mine was eating solid, table foods at 8 months old. He rarely ate jarred babyfood before that. There is no reason a 10 month old can't have tablefood, cut in small pieces.

  • We never really did jarred foods, never did purees, just table food cut up really small or mashed with the back of the fork.
