With DD she was young, 4 months, we didn't know any better. With DS we did not do pureed foods. We watch his cues and when he was ready started introducing soft table foods. He was about 8 months.

We skipped them. At 6 months he got his first taste of avo. He wasn't quite into it so we waited a few more months. We just give him pieces of whatever we are eating.

I use these developmental markers as well and I just offer "regular" food. I don't do purées.

Quoting jellyphish:

I should add I didn't go by age, I went by markers. Baby should be at least six months, able to sit unsupported, master the pincer grasp, and have lost tongue thrust reflex. Only then I offered to see if babe was ready.

Never gave purees.. not counting foods 'pureed' as part of their traditional cooking/ serving method like guacamole, pudding, etc.  :o)
