  • You can give him whatever you're eating. Mine were already on all table foods at 9 months! If he hasn't had many finger foods or table foods yet, start slow and dice it up....but, yeah, you can!

  • Yes you can give him whatever you're eating as said by the pp providing that it's small enough or mushed up enough that he will not choke on it or anything. Mine were all on it table food by 9 months, so go for it :).
