We feed our baby everything! He eats from our plates - obviously not steak or something like that. We also cook his own food, and then freeze it. He doesn't crawl yet and has no teeth, but sits and rolls over so I'm not worried. I've learned with my first one that as soon as they are interested in your plate of food, they are basically ready for almost anything.

Jasmine is 7 months and 3 weeks. She is eating cereal & formula mix for breakfast. Purified 2nd stage veggies and 3 ounces of formula for lunch and fruit for a snack. Then another kind of veggies at night with a 3 oz bottle of formula. She loves the green beans and hate peas. She isn't a fan of sqash either. She loves bananas.

My 7 month old is eating fruit and cereal for breakfast, yougurt, banana, and cheerios for lunch, and cereal and a veggie for dinner... and is drinking about 4 8 ounce bottles through out the day. Her cereal is at 2 tablespoons mixed with about an ounce of water. She's tried the Rice, Oatmeal, and Mixed grains but she prefers the rice. I'm giving her about 2 ounces of the fruits or veggies. I've been feeding her chunks of soft mushy fruits and veggies and a biter biscuit for a snack once in a while.

My daughter has oatmeal, 2-3 Tbsp of a fruit (apples, bananas, peaches, pears) and 2-3 Tbsp of a vegetable (sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, peas, carrots) along with about 6 oz. of formula every morning. That seems to hold her for quite a while. After a regular bottle, she'll have another 2 Tbsp of a fruit and vegetable later on in the day and have 2 Tbsp. of rice cereal before bed.



I've also just begun to move her into the 2nd foods. The quantity is too much for her but she loves trying new foods!!

An example day in our house would be:weetabix or porridge for breakfast (you can add things like mashed bannana or yogurt if baby doesnt like just weetabix), vegie & lentils or pasta for lunch , scrambled eggs with cheesey potato for dinner (he also has a 7oz bottle about 7am then 1 at 6pm) water in the day time. Oh & a rice cake or carrot flavoured corn crisp for a snack during the day.

Ok so my daughter would eat anything that came in front of her face if I let her. Her dad has given her everything from cottage sheese to chili. She is exclusively breast fed otherwise. And you know she has not had one bit of gas or tummy ache. only when we try to give her baby food. She is an inigma though, when I was preggo with her, I craved Indian food. So my suggestion would be experiment. but pay attention to her cues. hopefully this helps

I mix in baby oatmeal with pureed fruit for breakfast - he loves all fruit. I give him any kind of pureed veges. He absolutely will not eat pureed meat or anything like that. He loves the puffs and sometimes will eat off of my plate - as long as I smash it pretty good. Still has no teeth so pureed foods only.

I started my daughter on solids when she was 6 months. I made apple sauce, and banana sauce (which I can freeze to use later). Also I intruduced easy digesting foods like sweet potatoes. At around 7 months I introduced the rice cereal. Sometimes I mix in a little apple sauce or banana to enhance it's flavour.
She still nurses too.

Connor eats everything! He eats rice, oatmeal, and mixed grains cereal. He is not allergic to anything so he is even eating the mixed baby food now. Anything that is stage 2 he is eating.

Annabelle isn't crazy about pureed food, but she enjoys finger foods. She likes feeding herself Cheerios, rice, peas, tiny bits of carrot, ground beef, and most of what we eat, as long as it's safe for her. She also loves the Gerber puffs and yogurt melts.

potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, squash, apples, pears, peaches, bananas, rice, oatmeal, well cooked meats (chicken, turkey, beef, pork), cheese, egg yolks, baby cookies.

my son has been on baby cereals and pureed foods since 4 months and solid foods at 5 1/2 months. he has 14oz of formula for breakfast, 14oz before bed, and 7oz during the day and solid foods in between. I pretty much feed him salt/sugar free versions of what i eat as long as it is wheat/nut/honey/egg white free. when he is 9 months i will intoduce wheat.

My daughter is almost 7 months old and she eats squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, or apple sauce (only once).

I offer her rice cereal in the morning and a veggie in the evening before bed. She will barely eat a TBSP of any solid food, so she's really only getting her nutrition from breast-milk. I hope to get a little more serious about offering solids after the new year and then I may add some fruit (when she really figures out how to eat from a spoon).
