My 9 month old doesn't want baby food anymore. He likes to feed himself. Any suggestions of good finger foods? Anyone else having the same issue?

Racheal advice differs greatly about eggs from country to country. Here in the Uk babies can have both the white and the yolk from 6 months old as long as it's fully cooked.

my baby can't quite grasp the slippery fruits. he also still wants to swallow everything in his mouth so he gags all the time. i'm so nervous giving him non-pureed food!

Bran muffins, peas, chick peas, raisins, toast, french toast, pancakes, avocados, mangoes, cooked carrots, poached chicken, egg yolks scrambled or hard boiled i am in the same boat and now its just time to get inventive lol good luck

My 9 month old daughter decided she was done with pureed food also, She's been eating small pieces of fruits and veggies, but her favorites are: chicken, pork, cheese, whole wheat bread, broccoli, cauliflower, plums, bananas, pears, peas, and yogurt. I buy bags of frozen organic broccoli and cauliflower and defrost them in hot water, quick and easy!

My daughter has been eating finger foods since she was 7 months. She eats bananas, mangos, sweet/regular potatoes, green beans, carrots, peaches, pears, avocados, cherrios, crackers. I feed her a lot of what we're eating too. She really likes Mexican food. I put the filling (guacamole, beans, meat, cheese) on her tray and let her chow down. Its messy but she loves it. She also loves scrambled eggs; my pediatrican said they suggest not feeding the egg whites to kids under 1 year because egg whites are the part that cause allergic reactions. She said since we don't have a history of allergies it was ok to give them to her but just watch for a reaction like any other food. Good luck, he'll have fun making a mess learning to feed himself.

racheal, babies as young as 6 months can have the yolks but you should hold off on whites until 1 year.

I've done chopped carrot, sweet potato, cheese, peas cut in half, bananas, lunch meat, cheerios, yogurt melts (only one at a time though), plus what ever I'm eating.

i make my son toast--he loves it! he also likes teething biscuits and cheerios. i tried to give him bananas, avocados, mangoes, he eats that too It takes some effort on his part to pick up those slippery fruits :-) haven't tried giving him vegetables yet as finger foods :-)
