  • Baby food at around 5-6 months with each kid. Table food...don't really remember with my older 3 but my youngest fed herself the first time at 7 1/2 months old. It was Thanksgiving and she had a little of everything. By Christmas she was on all table food. She was 8 1/2 months old. She never looked back and rarely ate baby food after that and refused to be fed. She has always fed herself. She is 2 1/2 now and uses a spoon/fork and has since she was like 16 months. She's a big girl.

  • Baby food at 4 months per my doctor. We started offering finger foods at 6 months and incorporating table foods as well. By the time they were 9 months, they were on all table foods eating a wide variety and a balanced diet. (well, as balanced as I could LOL)

  • My oldest was eleven months and my youngest was nine months. I nursed and they thrived and ate when they were ready.
