Morning, How old where your babies when you started Cheerios? My little guy doesn't have any teeth yet but he wants our food. When ever we are eating anything he stares at the food and starts opening his mouth. I'm just wondering when I should try to introduce new foods. He also wants to feed himself more but he jams the spoon in his mouth. So I was wondering if some veggie pinwheels or fruit pinwheels would be a good option. Thanks for your thoughts. Brenda

Quoting Brenda:

Thanks for all your thoughts and ideas. I tried the Sweet Potato puffs he was not sure what to do with it yet but he will figure it out.


We just started sweet potato puffs this week too and have a similar reaction. He pushes them around his tray and picks them up but doesn't even try to put them in his mouth. And of course, this is the only thing he doesn't try to put in his mouth! What's up with that?!



I'm sure he'll figure it out soon.

My son is 7.5 mos w/ 2 bottom teeth, and he seemed to be really interested in "big people" food, so i broke cheerios in half and put a few on his high chair tray, and he loved them!! With most of the food my husband and I eat, we break off a small piece and let him take it and feed himself just so he can try a variety of foods :)

I've given my son gerber puffs, adn bitter biscuits. I've also given him frozen bagel or italian bread. Another thing I have that I love is the Net Feeder. It's basically a feeding sytem that allows babies to eat things without the danget of choking because the only peces they get are what can seep through the holes in the net. I freeze wedges of fresh apples , pears or banannas and put them in it. He loves it!! Check it out:

I started giving my son (7 months) cherrios a few weeks ago, and he loves them. At first he had trouble getting them into his mouth, but now his pincher grasp is in full function. The other day my older boys were eating kix, so I gave one to him and he loved those as well.

We started Cheerios at about 6 months. I took her to the peditrician for her checkup and we told him we were feeding her puffs. He suggested cheerios for cost reasons. I thought they might be too hard, but we tried them and she LOVES them. We give her a handful after each meal while I clean up...keeps her occupied!

My son is 7 months old, with only 2 front teeth. I have started giving him sweet potato chips (baked in the oven on baking paper), which he can hold. He loves them, and they are healthy.

My little Madison eats a lot of the baby purees and cereals, but recently I've been giving her some real bananas. I find that they are mushy enough for her to actually chew with no side teeth. She takes little bites from the banana, and I put some of it on her tray so she can figure out how to eat it herself. She absolutly loves it! It can get very messy though!!! LOL

My baby does not have teeth either, and I just started giving him cherrios, he chews on it with his gums until it is soft then swallows.I also started to put some on his high chair tray where he can pick them up for himself (he is picking them up but cannot put them directly into his mouth yet)

Our baby (7 mos) loves bitter biscuits. He gets to eat a biscuit while we are eating dinner and sits at the table with us.

if he's interested, wouldnt hurt to try!!! We had pizza the other night and somehow my lil one ended up with a handful of sauce and cheese (big sis i am guessing) but she was trying as fast as she could to gobble it up before i could wipe it all off. Yet she wont eat meats...spits them out. But she has had cheerios, biter biscuits, and gerber graduate puffs.

My son started doing the same at 6mths. So I started with the toast and moved on to bitter bisc. and pinwheels. Ive even given him frozen bagels. So if he shows interest then it doesn't hurt to try. as long as you dont give it to him and leave! lol
