So my son will be 8 months old this month, he has 7 teeth already so i know he is ready to step it up a little. But whenever I give him the "stage 3" baby food he spits it back out because of the texture. But he is ALLLLLWAYS hungrey. He is eating 8 oz of milk with rice in it every 3-4 hours or so. On top of that, he gets his baby food in the morning, lunch, and dinner. What can I do to keep him satisfied?? Is he ready for table food?

Have you tried other snacky baby food stuff. I know they have those finger foods for them that melt in their mouth, and the hard bread things that they naw on and feel good on their teeth. I think they make fruit bars too. I know he will not get full off of these but they will keep him busy and they are good. Cheerios and stuff like that you can try also.

my daughter has been eating table food since 6 months and she is one now...she hates baby food...she doesnt like anything with that texture! so whatever we eat she eats and if she cant eat it then i make her some kind of vegetable or grilled chz, etc... it gives them more variety i think anyway! and my daughter eats anything you put in front of her...lol

I have been giving my daughter table food for about a month now, she will be 10 months next week. She LOVES it, she never liked baby food so her ped said try table food and she is in heaven. She still doesn't have any teeth so I make sure the pieces are tiny but they chew with their back ones anyways. She loves all that we eat, even fish and lamb! She is still breastfeeding 80-90% of the time so your little one may still want bottles even once you introduce table food and that's ok. Good luck!

Hi Steffany!

I'm sure it will just be a matter of time before your son starts getting used to different textures. I started giving my daughter table food at about 8 or 9 months. She's already 1, but still no teeth are popping through so we continue to blend table food or use our Magic Bullet. She still eats baby food, but only when we don't have time to cook or when we're out of the house. We also mix scoops of the rice cereal together with the baby food to get her more calories. That might help get your little guy more full too!
