When did you stop giving your child baby food?

My son is 13 months, and i still give him gerber oatmeal mixed with apple sauce for breakfast everyday. I also give him a number three jar of various fruits at least once a day. Do you still give your son or daughter what others may label as 'baby' food? I see nothing wrong with it. Its nutritious, right?

  • I think my kids were right around 10 or 11 months. The baby food just didn't hold them anymore!

  • Oh its not that he doesnt get solids, I always make sure the lunch and dinner we eat as a family (i also have a 4 and 5 year old) is something he can have too. I just like to suppliment with foods designed for growing babies. Didnt know if any other moms do that too.

  • I don't think baby food jars are cheaper than a store brand natural applesauce, but I don't shop where you shop. We stopped all "baby" foods just before one year and she eats what we eat. It is really up to you though.
