My 9 month old doesn't want to eat the puree baby foods any more. He goes to daycare and sees the big kids eatting table food and keeps grabbing for our plates at home. Any suggestions?

Oh yeah. By nine months, my son was eating (basically) everything we ate for 3 meals a day, along with his nursing sessions. He was/is a big eater. I make him an egg with a half piece of toast for breakfast, or french toast/pancakes with fruit (no syrup or ketchup. Even now I don't give him condiments and he is 17 months.) Lunches would be leftovers from dinner, or else a hotdog and veggies, chicken nuggets and veggies, nutella and jelly and veggies... (I'm going to wait until he is 2 to give peanut butter.) And then dinner would be whatever we ate. I would maybe try to avoid super spicy/super greasy foods, but my son basically ate everything. Make a meat, a starchy side and a veggie. That all should be fine. Of course you don't want to give him too much, as to knock out his nursing/formula feeding, which are still the most important at this age. As far as snacks, whole milk yogurt, crackers, bananas, goldfish... Hope that helps.

Same here...she doesn't let me spoon feed her these days. I offer lots of soft fruits and veggies (cut up small, of course), eggs, toast, waffles, cheese, and some noodles. She LOVES avocados. She is still breastfeeding, so that is still her main source of food.

start giving your child table foods but pick from some that mimic the purees, ie, carrots, apples,...first

My daughter has been eating everything we eat since about 7 months. Just start with anything soft cut up into small pieces. Toast, avocado, banana, sweet potato, steamed broccoli etc are all good.

Let him try it!! Start withsoft things like the center of some bread or some noodles. I make ALOT of meals in my slow cooker so the food is nice and soft. The other night my son ate stew with us. He had tiny pieces of potato carrot and even the meat
