Solid Food (From puree to solids)

Just wondering if you mom's out there have any tips on getting your 8-9month old solids food.
My daughter as a very difficult time doing the transitions for she just swallows everything whole.
Any tips?

Perhaps try putting some apple sauce in a dixie cup with a popsicle stick in it and freeze it then give this to her! Have you tried a little guy when I first introduced solids enjoyed grabbing a piece in his hand and mushing it and feeding it to himself. It was messy...but he loved it!! I also found he loved puffs at first (gerber)...they stuck to his hands so they are easy for them to self feed and they disolve in seconds...also rusks...

Give her something to learn to chew on like a baby cookie it will teach her to bite and may teach her to chew.. My daughter is 9 months old and eats all solids she was started eating them at 6 months..I found that giving her things that she can bite on like cookies and whole carrots big not little, also i found that Popsicles (frozen ones) helped her learn to chew.. Hope this helps I am not an expert just thought i would share my personal learning experience with my own daughter!
