What did you feed your 8 month old? My son doesn't have any teeth yet and the only thing he has had is forumla and number 2 foods. What all was your 8 month old eating? Are there any good websites for this information?

my daughter has the same thing daily. she has 2 teeth coming in, but still isnt good at chewing. her doctor said to try table food that is soft because it has more calories than the baby food. i just chop things really good or squish it so its easy for her to eat.

Get a food processor, it's the best thing. I did spagetti- chopped up, fish, fruit and veggies, cherrios, puffs. My first didn't get any teeth until 8.5 mo old. Basically anything we had, it was smooshed or semi-pureed =)

Been wondering about the same thing. I give her cut up fruits, beans, puffs,eggs( hard boiled or scrambled) bread crusts. All cut up to bite sized pieces so can pick them up with her hands. She has to feed herself so anything we eat for as long as its not too spicy. And my daughter got her teeth last month but she still could chew and mash and chop.
