Do not microwave any in plastic and give it to your baby!!! Always take it out of the plastic container and microwave in glass. Even those gerber graduate meals. If you don;t know alreadt. I know my sons ped. didn't tell me. I found out from surfing the internet. I just stopped doing it a few weeks ago and my son will be 2 next month.

I was putting what I made for dinner for My husband and I in a blender and giving it to my son at 7 months. Stuff like meat, potatoes and a jar of veggie baby food. I'd also blend up chicken and rice and add a jar of baby veggies. Of course I would not use any salt or pepper when I prepared it. He loved it and his pediatrician said it was a good way for him to get his protein, because that baby food with meat in it is just plain nasty!! Hope this helps.

avocados are great for your baby, sweet potato, apple sauce, squash, carrots. just steam, mash, and feed your baby!

[deleted account]

you can give her what you eat just make sure its cut up small enough for her not to choke on. And of course no junk food exept for an occasional treat since she probably has some teeth by now. Also get some tooth and gum cleanser to use that has no flouride to help keep her teeth clean till she gets her permanant ones, (which wont be for a few more years)

My son turns 10 months on the 23rd - at his 9 month checkup our Dr told us he could anything (incl nuts and fish - but if you have a risk of allergies, I wouldnt. My son has had small tastes of both without any problems) The dr did say not to give him honey - I guess because of the bee allergy?! My baby never liked baby food it was a chore every feeding to get him to eat half a jar - he LOVES real food!

My daughter eats -
Breakfasts: yogurt, eggs, toast (with butter or jam), pancakes (no syrup), fresh fruit, sausage, oatmeal, cottage cheese with fruit baby food mixed in...
Lunch/Dinner: lunch meat, chicken noodle soup [the pasta and veggies in soup are great because they are very mushy, just watch the salt content], other soups, chili, over-cooked veggies or baby food vegetables, turkey burger patties, meatballs, spaghetti, fresh fruit, and Stage 3 baby foods...

Our pediatrician gave us the green light on everything except for nuts and shellfish. We also started introducing whole milk that my daughter takes sips of from a cup with a straw while she's eating, and then she has a bottle after she's done. She only eats a few tablespoons of table food at a time. (But she's always eaten less than most her age).

my daughter gets most things- mushier cereals, any fruit or veg, meat as cut up rissoles or sausages, or mince, cheese, yoghurt. think she gets most things now but i've been putting off eggs so might start them soon. i try for a variety of textures from puree still to sticks of finger food to biccies. a good breakfast i've found is to grate apple or pear, microwave for 1min then add baby cereal to get a decent consistency.


to the pp- i hadn't heard not to give tomato- we have been feeding bolognaise etc. why do you hold off on them? i haven't worried about wheat (in fact vitabrits are one of her main breakfasts)

Mine is eating everything as long as it is pureed... Syill has a hard time with puffs and anything chunky (chokes and/or throws up), but he loves all foods... Try yogurt (yobaby), avocadoes, mangos, pineapple, but stay away from citrus, tomatoes and wheat until he is 1 yr old.

I'm with everyone else, when we go out to eat he eat potatoes, the bread, I still give him the gerber jar foods but I add stuff to it that we are eating. I do not let him drink soda, juice sometime and although I forbid him tasting candy, my grandmother gave him a lollipop and he went crazy when I took it.

My little one has been eating off my plate for about 2 months now and I give her what ever I eat. She eats anywhere from turkey lunch meat, to hot dogs, french toast, spaghetti, and chicken. Anything you can cut into small peices and that kind of mushes in the mouth is good to try.

My twin girls eat what we eat for meals, but I just mash it up a bit. They love avocado, cous cous, pasta etc. For snacks I give them sultanas, mini rice cakes, bananas, yoghurt, watermelon etc. I have started trying to get tjem to eat finger food and feed themselves. It's all about trying different foods - as long as they don't have allergies. Good luck & have fun!!

I found this awesome website that deals solely with baby food. It's: www.wholesomebabyfood.com It's got a TON of information! I love it! Every recipe we've tried from the site my daughter just loves. And, it's REAL food so that helps in the transition from "baby food" to "toddler food."
I never really fed her "baby" food per se -- we decided to just do it homemade right from the get-go. My daughter eats everything -- and I mean everything. There's not a single food she doesn't like. We stopped doing the baby cereal when she was about 6 mos because she just hated it (and it tastes like cardboard -- yes, I tried it!). I make her oatmeal for breakfast, but it's real oatmeal -- not the powdery or instant stuff. I just try to feed her normal foods and things we eat regularly. Infact, we were given the green-light from her Pediatrician to start giving her 'table foods.'
Hope you are able to find some things to make eating more interesting!

My son has just turned 10 months and i feed him yogurt, bananas, sandwiches weetbix, cooked up and mashed vegies mixed with either mince or chicken, milk arrowroot biscuits and lots more things. He basically eats anything. it is really good to get your little one trying all types of different types of food at this age because otherwise you may have more problems when they get older. they need to get used to feel of different textures and tastes.

Hi Tracy

Your baby can start to eat any food that you eat. Except stews. My baby is eating the cereal that I'm eating cause he got tired of the baby cereal. I give my 10 month old baby boy home made vegies and home made fruit and I mix his vegies with mince meat or pasta.

I founded recipes on the internet for 10 month old babies and I must say it helps a lot.

my boy is just ova 10 months, but for a good few months now he has eaten similar foods to me i just blend his food down and he loves it, try rice, pasta, blended sausage, mash potato, weetabix, porridge, yogurts, biscuits, cottage pie, rusks, bananas, fish etc. all babies are different but just experiment with different foods and she what she like n eats, she will get bored to be honest we would eating the same foods everyday =] x

My boys eat with a spoon pretty well and I offer them different kinds of food. At first I made vegetable purée, than added meat, they also love baby cereal and all kinds of fruits - bought or prepared, fresh or cooked. Lately I started feeding them ready food (mostly Gerber :)), because they didn't like home made food with larger pieces. They also eat different grains or pasta for breakfast, milk yogurts with biscuits or fruit for snack and baby cereal with milk for supper.

My little girl just turned 10 months and I've been giving her grilled cheese, ravioli (no sauce & overcooked), chicken nuggets, pancake, cheese and some veggies to name a few things. I just break things into small pieces about the size of the Gerber puffs or smaller and overcook anything that seems like it needs to be softer. Rhiannon hates baby cereal so we gave that up months ago. As a matter of fact she hates being spoon fed so it's all pretty much finger foods.
