i wish my daughter would do 4 6 oz bottles instead she does 6 4 oz bottles a day she won't increase the amount in her bottles because she has a tinnier tummy so she likes to have smaller bottles, so i give her the smaller bottles, i have tried the bigger ones and she just wastes the extra stuff!

My daughter has been on baby food and cereal since she was 4 months old because at that point i was feeding her every hour! I was giving jar baby food then i purchased the baby bullet and now i make all of her food. She pretty much eats anything we eat and i just put it in the baby pullet to puree it. Just watch for allergies. Sweet Potatoe, Carr:)ots, Squash are a huge it and she loves any kind of fruit :)

on top of peanut butter, and honey as julie said you should be careful with other nuts and popcorn as well as egg too, egg is over a year, popcorn depending on who you talk to is over 2 or 3 years, nuts depending on the research. At 7 months old you can introduce all fruits and veggies in a form your child can eat, starting in a mashed form into as textured as you want to, and you can introduce proteins like yogurt, and meats, just not milk yet until a year old.

My baby is eating stage 3 jar foods and any food off my plate that is soft enough for her to gum a little (she doesn't have any teeth yet). I will also take our family dinners and put in the food processor for her, and she loves it. Basically, she is eating anything I put in her mouth. =) The guidelines about waiting to introduce high risk foods for allergies has changed, and it's pretty much anything goes. Just add new foods one at a time and watch for signs of allergic reactions. My daughter absolutely loves strawberries! My pedicatrician said the only foods that are still off limits until one year old are whole cow's milk, peanut butter, and honey. She is eating 3 solid meals a day, breastfeeding (or getting expressed bottle) 3 times a day, and sleeping all night. If she wasn't eating solids so well, I don't think I could keep up to her appetite with just breastfeeding!
