Is there any particular order to introduce foods?

How much do you breastfeed after 1 year old?

I am introducing solids this weekend when he turns 8 months.

Most people give a soft veggie as a first food like avocado.

I still nursed on demand after a year and follow my child's lead.

I started giving solids when they were sitting unassisted and able to feed themselves with the pincer grasp.

What she said. I started with avocado slices and introduced one food at a time every three days or so. At 18 months my daughter is still nursed on demand and often only eats twice a day.

With dd I did purees, cereals and table food introducing one food at a time.
With ds he started by eating breakfast with me and eating the same thing for a few days before I moved on to something else.
After he turned one I continued to nurse on demand but allowed him to eat table foods without nursing first. He's 20 months and nurses a lot, but my supply is very low due to being eight months pregnant.

I started out with bananas and just any soft food off my own plate I think at 10 months.  Also I just followed his lead and nursed on demand, luckily I was home with him and able to do that.

Ds's first foods were avocado, sweet potato, and banana. I still nursed on demand. He is 2 1/2 and still would nurse all day long if I let him.
