MY baby (Kiera) was born June 20. I have recently started her on Homo Milk throughout the day. She seems to be doing well but I wonder if I should be giving her more baby foods with meat in them. She still gets mostly Veggies and Fruits. What say you?

My Caroline does a mixture of baby food/ table food depending on what we are eating. I don't give her milk yet but I usually do start mixing a little in with their formula at about 11 months slowly increasing so that they are ready for milk at 12mo. I know thats not the "recommended" route but it has served me well for my other 3. When I started to intro meats I used the dinner varieties in baby food... like chicken dinner or apples and ham. None of my babies like those jars of meat- they smell like cat food! Once they had been introduced to the meat then I give them the real thing. My daughter loved the corned beef last week and hambergers! No teeth but great at gummin it! :)

My little girl who is 9 and a half months eats everything....i try to give her what we are having so i don't have to cook seperate for her and i just cut it up into smaller pieces. She always has a meal and then a dessert. She doesn't have any teeth yet either but she has mastered the chewing action with her gums. I feed her pasta, sandwiches, fruit, veggies, lentils, cheese, jelly, custard, meats, chickens etc. My only advice is to not feed them the meats and chickens plain...mix it in with veggies or some sauce or cook it into the pasta dish....she loves it. On occassions, i will feed her food from baby tins just to mix it up but even then, i might use half a tin and add some of my cooked veggies to it. With drinks, i only ever give her water from a sipper cup which she's loves and she is still breastfeed 3 times a day. Have fun experimenting :)

Well I Thought that same thing and then one day I saw 3rd foods meats and meats&Veggies so I thought I would try something new my son is almost 9 months and He has been eating baby foods since 3 months and He hated the meats but he like the meats and veggies mixed together so if you want to start do it now because other wise you could have a veggie eater on your hands right now is the best time to start. Also I would stop the milk do water or juice instead of all the time formula I give my son 3 bottles a day the rest of the day i give him sippie cups of juice and water same with when he eats food i give him apple juice with his food just to worn you to have your little one off the bottle by a year start the sippie cup now if you havent already i start the sippie cup at 5 months just to be safe. The reason I say stop the milk is becasue you should never give a baby real milk to there 1 year birthday it could be to risky!
