When did you start trying your baby on regular food?

I have given finger food since Euan was old enough to hold it. Now he is a little older at 8 months he eats a lot of what I do, especially things like fingers of omlette, fruit chunks and veg pieces...he is also willing to give roast chicken and sausages a go which is not bad for a gummy bear!
Go with what you feel your lo can cope with

I love giving my daughter, who just turned 8 months, cut up fruits and soft veggies. I cut them up really small so she can't choke on them. I have given her pureed and cut up blueberries, strawberries, cucumber, tomato (cut real small), My sister and I have even pureed peas and spinach for her. She loves most everything!

I agree, but also, realize that carrots, green beens, beets and meats like deli meats, hotdogs, etc are high in nitrates, these shouldn't be given to your babe until 8-10 months, (for the veggies, just buy commercial baby food, it is monitored for nitrate levels) I make my own baby food for my son, and I am loosely following the baby food cook book I have and my common sense. I would say as long as you try new foods one at a time, and in small amounts, so you will know which one is causing a problem if you have one, you are well within reasonable feeding guidelines. Go mom!
