Baby food?

I know some of you will say not to intruduce baby food ever, but that's not the answer I am looking for.  I also know to start with the yucky stuff first and single foods for a few days before trying new ones.  My question is when do you do this?  And how much at a feeding and how often?  Thanks!

I fed my daughter baby food once a day on baby food at 5 months and then progressed 3 times a day until she was ready for more adult food.

I think I started with the Dryed Yogurt Melts, but that I think was pretty much it, along with other snack stuff. She, my daughter, never really ate the other baby food. I wish I could remember when I introduced them to her..

I fed my twins 1 jar of baby food and didnt change foods for a week. Started with veggies and then fruit and then at 6 months started meats. Now they are almost 7 months and i do a little of everything and 2-3 times a day

Don't start with yucky stuff tho who would want to eat purred watery peas out of a jar. Puree whatever you eat and give it flavor! It just needs to be purred not watery

This is a good response.  At either your 4 or 6 month well baby check up your doctor should give you this information, and if they don't, you should ask.  Most will have a feeding chart to give you that outlines, what you can give them and how much they should be eating each month.  I started out with a tablespoon full once or twice a day.

You don't have to start with the yucky stuff, that is just silly that people say that.  We did quite a variety with my daugher, fruits and veggies (all homemade), and she is a great eater now.

I agree with this, although no purees here.

Our kids start solids once they can pick food up and feed themselves :)

My 6.5 month old is still exclusively breastfed. When they feed themselves, they control how much they get.

We offer little snacks in between meals, and they sit down with us at the table for breakfast, lunch and supper.

This. Mine were 8/10 months.
And they get breastmilk first, food after. Fill up on the good stuff before playing/sampling solids.
