My little guy only has 2 teeth, but loves finger foods - cheerios, diced toast, diced slightly cooked apple (so soft but not mushy), tiny diced cheese, diced banana, diced canned fruit (rinsed first - too sweet!), cooked rice If it is smaller than a pea, and I can squish it with my tongue to roof of mouth, it is soft enough for him right now.
We also give him the 8 month babyfood with veggie chunks, and sometimes make our own from our meal, just blendered/ chopped.

I recently made some chicken stock with chicken thighs (no salt) then pureed it with some of the chicken meat, as well as some peas and corn. My son loved it! He's not too interesting in eating right now. He has 3 teeth coming in at once. So, I'm holding off on anything heartier until his gums are less sensitive.

My DD doesn't have teeth yet, but has been enjoying her purees and some table foods. She really enjoys sweet potatoes (cooked at 375 for 4 hours...soft as butter, and she can eat half of it in one sitting), mashed potatoes, pumpkin bread, homemade white bread, pizza crust (the soft part), pumpkin pie and croissants. She also enjoys Gerber pinwheels when I can find them. And she can entertain herself for hours with handfuls of Cheerios.

Corbin doesn't have any teeth yet. those of you who give lots of fruits and veggies already, do you still give the purees, or do you just prepare the other food like you would for the rest of your family?

The Gerber Lil crunches and Gerber pinwheels are a good snack. My son got his teeth early though. He already has 7 of them. 4 on the top and 3 on the bottom. Helps with the pinwheels because they're harder than the crunches. He also snacks on puffs.

Mine has banana, watermelon, apple, carrot, potato, sweet potato, spinach, broccoli, zucchini, prunes(if he needs them, i put them in 500ml water & boil them until theyre stewed, blend them up & mix them with banana, & strain the water & give it to him as juice watered down-does the trick) peas, wheatbix, toast (i let him chew on the crust, its like a rusk, except easier to eat) 1/4 apples to hold & chew- theyre too big to put whole in his mouth , he loves it.. watermelon he eats also, but only if im helping, tends to take BIG bites.. & arrowroot biscuits.. :) although he did have an allergic reaction to grapes?

I give my son just about everything he has picked up chewing really quick as long as i can mush it with my tounge and roof of my mouth then he is able to chew it the only thing he does not get yet are meats.

I don't give Madelyn too much yet but I let her try mashed potatoes, home made banana bread, the gerber puffies (I break pieces off...she doesn't quite understand not to swallow right away just yet) and any other soft, melt in your mouth kind of foods as long as they're healthy...and very veryyyy small bites! She's loves mashed potatoes...just like mommy lol
