Hello all! I have never posted here before but I read every so often...I belong to another site for my daughter born in '07, but my son's group never really formed a bond so no one ever posts! lol I have a bunch of friends who belong to COMs, but different age groups...My son Kyle is 11 months, born on March 8th.....same bday as my daughter, Emma!...and my name is Kelly. I am 33, married and live in NJ...soon to be moving to PA.

Anyway, I was wondering, as I seem to have forgotten since my daughter was a baby, what your 11 month olds are eating. Are they eating mostly jarred baby food yet, or are they eating more table food. When did you start to feed them table food?

Kyle has 8 teeth - 4 on top front, 4 on bottom front. I only started giving him puffs this past week and he does great with them. I have a feeling I may have started earlier with my daugter, but this time I see to take a little longer with him....maybe bc I know there's no need for rush? With Emma I was so excited to do everything for the first time...with Kyle I already know the steps and I am not as anxious....and maybe knowing he is my last, I am babying him lol.

He's tried chopped up carrots - didn't like them. But that's really it table food-wise.

Thanks ladies in advance for any advice/info you can share! : ) ~Kelly

Thanks so much everyone! This does help alot - it makes me more comfortable with what I am doing with him....just gradually taking this step into table food. I am so nervous giving him anything...so afraid he is going to choke. I was this way with my daughter too though lol. Choking is my worst fear with my babies. He tried pasta and meatballs tonight and loved them! He also tried a few chick peas and loved them too haha. It's so fun to see them eat "real" food! Thanks everyone : )

Hi Kelly,

My name is Diane and I am 37 and live in Toronto, Ontario. My daughter, Mya will be one on March 16th. I am still giving her jarred food for the nutrition but she also gets some of what we eat for dinner, just in smaller pieces. She only has the bottom two teeth at the moment, but she does not seem to have any trouble with peeled grapes, Baby Mums, puffs and raisins. I also noticed that the table food that we give her comes out the next day in her diaper, so this is the reason that I am still giving her the jarred food as well. She also gets a sippy cup with water and juice mixed.

I hope that this helps.

Diane

My 11 month old will eat anything. He only has the two bottom teeth, but he mashes everything really good with his gums. His appetite is insatiable! 3 pancakes and a scrambled egg for breakfast on the weekends! He eats whatever we have for dinner. I have gone back to feeding him homemade baby food before the regular table food though, because I notice it doesn't digest well. I can always tell what we ate for dinner the night before by looking in his diaper. 8-P So I give the table food as a treat, but count on baby food for his nutrition.



He is my 4th. I have 9 year old twin boys, and a daughter who will be 6 in a week. I'm 30 and I live right outside of Cincinnati, in N. Kentucky.

My little man LOVES FOOD! ANYFOOD!!!! he will be one on March 7th. He still has 4 bfeeds a day. He has fruit (puree apple / pear or banana etc) and cereal for breakfast (weetbix / porriage etc). The fruit pieces for morning tea (dried appricots, slices of peeled apple, pear, banana, nectarine etc. Lunch is meat, vegies and a carb (pasta /rice / potato) then yoghurt. Arvo tea is something like - cheese on toast, avacardo and ham on crackers, pikelets, rice cakes with cream cheese, banana sandwhich....... Tea is vegies and a carb.

He is also happy to have zuchini slice or a salmon rice loaf or tuna patties, roast vegies in bit size pieces etc for tea. I like giving him foods like this that he can pick up but find he gets more veiges into him having spoon fed foods still. He goes through fazes to we try different things, sometimes some mashed vegies then I give him some meatballs to chew on.

I only make his food and dont buy any jar stuff.

I dehydrate my own fruit which is great to give him pieces to munch on when we go shopping, much less mess.

Good luck

Our son will be 11 months on the 24th. He wants to eat everything that we eat. He's so curious about what we have on our plates. So for the most part, he still gets his jarred fruit but we also started feeding him some of the toddler meals and anything else soft. No meats really since he only has 2 teeth. He's doing really well with it.

I too am kind of wondering what to feed my son. My daughter is 6 so I can barely remember her feeding schedule. My son doesn't really like textures much so he's on a lot of jarred food and home-made baby food. Lately with him however I have given him cottage cheese, mashed avacado, pork roast and stuffing (mashed up), cheerios and I give him a little bite of just about anything I'm eating as long as it's not too hard. I'm not sure he's realized his teeth are for chewing yet!

Hi there,

My name is Helen and my daughter Ava will be one on 14th March (she is my first child). Ava has about 6 teeth in total and she has a mixture of jarred food and finger foods. I've tried her on a few varieties but found that she preferred Heinz.

I try and vary her feeds. She has porridge with mashed banana for breakfast. I give her slices of pear or banana, she likes rice cakes and she has carrot and sweetcorn sticks (stage 2 organix finger food). I also give her steamed veg, mild cheddar, scrambled egg, slices of bread with egg mayo and many other foods because she loves feeding herself. I also give her cheerios soaked in her follow on formula to make them a bit softer. I wasn't sure about the honey in them but The health visitor said that it was fine. Its interesting to find out what others are eating..

Hi Kelly,



My name is Kristina! I am 32 and live in NH with my husband, Kris & our daughter, Emily. Emily will be 11 months on March 1st! We have been giving Emily solid food since about 4 months old. We started off with introducing her to rice/mixed grain cereal. We than gradually started mixing some baby food (fruits/veggies) into her daily diet; we introduced 1 new food at a time over a 3-4 day time span to ensure no allergies, etc! Emily now eats solid food on a regular basis (3-4/day). She still enjoys eating jar food; however, we have introduced almost everything we eat to her as well. We just cut everything up into bite size pieces and let her go to down!!! We also have introduced water, fruit juice, and milk through her sippy cup!!! She also will eat puffs, yougurt melts, biter biscuits, etc for snacks!!! Hope this helps and best wishes with your little one!!!

~Kristina :)
