My son loved baby food but my older daughter never liked it so she has always eaten table food. Now my younger daughter is old enough to eat baby food (she will be 6 months old tomorrow) she eats it up but it makes her tummy hurt. It doesn't seem like gas but it messes up her normally very regular BMs. But when I feel her table food (so far bread, mashed potatoes and other soft foods) and it hasn't seemed to bother her at all. Is that a normal reaction to baby food? I don't give her rice cereal just straight baby food. I don't mind giving her table food I just don't understand why its upsetting her. Any ideas?

Not sure why it's upseting her, but we started with homemade baby foods at 6 months until I researched that there is really no need to puree her food. She eats simple foods, chopped into pea sized bites and loves the independence she gets from feeding herself.

So do you think I should continue trying to give her baby food or just not even worry about it and go with table food?

She may not be ready to eat at all if it's upsetting her! :( I'd wait a few weeks before trying again.

We are doing table food this time. With my first I bought baby food for a bit. Then started to make my own. With my second I made it all. This time I am just doing table food.

We went straight to table food. No cereals or purees, ever.

I wait until they are able to pick it up and feed themselves. Usually between 7-9 months.

If you make the kinds of table foods she can eat, go for it!  :)  Why bother with the baby food?  Maybe have some on hand for when you go somewhere and not sure what you might feed her but otherwise, table foods!  :)
