  • He can start on fruits and veggies now - introduce one at a time and don't be concerned if it's not a hit right away.

  • Cereal IS baby food. You can move on to other varieties or mushed up/cut up table foods if you want to and if you feel he is ready.

  • I gave all of mine real food from the get go, no problems like the swear there will be. I have 4. Anyway, they best way to do it is 1 food at a time a couple of days apart to make sure there are no allergies. And I suggest getting one of those grinders or using a blender to puree. The baby food tastes nasty. It's also WAY cheaper than buying the jar food.

  • You don't have to do veggies before fruit. It's an old wives tale. Sure there are babies who were given fruit first who don't like veggies, but there are also babies that were given veggies first who don't like veggies. Breastmilk is very sweet, and my kids both eat most veggies, and also love most fruits.

  • Just go with the babyfood it is made for that. They have veggies also in baby food. Alot of babies don't like the veggies and they smell nasty too! I gave my son the foods I listed above in my first post and he really loves veggies. I also gave him mashed potatoes. He loved those!
