What kind of food is your baby eating at 10 months?

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

[deleted account]

I feed my son 3rd stage baby food and other foods that are soft enough. He loves mac and cheese and mashed potatoes. He likes just about everything. He loves those lil puff snacks.

My baby eats whatever we are eating. This morning she had diced banana and cinnamin toast. We dont give her fast food. If we eat fast food,I give her jar food. I know that wont last ,so we have cut way back on our fast food which is good for everyone:))

My girl at 10 and a half months will eat just about anything - but we don't her anything with added sugar or salt and we do not give her fatty foods either.



She is a great eater and will eat - weetbix, baby muesli, baby yoghurt, baby cheese, banana, avocado, pear, apple, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, blackberry, carrot, beans, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potato, normal potato, red meat, chicken, tuna, wholemeal bread, peanut butter, peas, corn, mushrooms...



she started with puree everything - but now will chow down on pieces of food - vegies etc, and loves to feed herself a bread roll, or slice of bread and also her cheese and when we go out to eat we order her a bowl of steamed vegies and she will eat them with out us having to do anything except make sure that it is cool enough for her to eat.



we make her food, but we have 100% natural store bought food for emergencies.



she is down to one bottle of formula a day - being her night bottle which she feeds herself... and is very good at drinking lots of water though a straw cup :)



She is my lil star eater :D

Quoting Nicole:

My 10 month old son eats mostly formula and the occasional cereal and puffs. Lately I've been worrying if I started him on solids too late or if he's too into his bottle. I'm going to have a tough time getting off of it. He doesn't even hold the bottle on his own or feed himself. Any suggestions?



My daughter 10/20/08, refuses to hold her bottle, also. But, she does hold her spill proof straw cup by herself and eats with her hands if it's not to slippery and she'll hold a spoon if I put the food in it. I think she just likes the attention she gets if my hands aren't free to do other things when she gets the bottle. (I like it also). She won't have a bottle much longer and I love holding her.

My son seems to have a tough time with chunkier stuff. He will eat puffs just fine, but stage 3 foods and other solids he has a tough time with. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?



Yes, my son has some issues with chunkier food as well. I am concerned as well because he still only mostly eats stage 2 baby food. The only people food he eats is yogurt. He does not mind the crunchier food though, he can eat cereals if they are broken up for him and rice cakes. But anything that is chunky and soft, he won't touch, like mash potatoes. Weirdest thing. I have not found a way to break it.

my little one eats EVERY THING. ( i am still holding back honey, peanut butter and fish) but she will eat anything i am eating. she likes spicy, and saute onions, pepper and garlic is one of her favs. she will eat blue cheese, lamb, buffalo, anything i am eating with is very diverse. she feels left out if she does not get what we are having. she does not get fast food.

When I started my son on 3rd level foods in the 8th month, he just couldn't handle it. I tried again when he was 9 months, and it worked if I added some 2nd level sweet potato or squash to the mix. Now he's 11 months and he eats all the 3rd level stuff plus we feed him from our plates at dinnertime. I'm scared, but I know the next step is to give him his own plate with regular food. The bad thing is he likes to throw his food all around the kitchen and on the floor.

Adelyn wants to eat what we eat. We make sure she eats her stage 3 baby food before we sit down. While we are eating dinner we give little pieces of what we are eating. Her two older siblings have started feeding her whatever they have as well. She LOVES Goldfish crackers!

My son gets baby oatmeal (mixed with formula) and a jar of baby fruit mixed into it for breakfast. Lunch is usually deli meat, cheese and some cut up fruit. Dinner is usually whatever we have. I found that he did not like the stage 3 jarred foods at all. I don't know if it was the combination of pureed food and chunks or if he just didn't like the selection :-) Snacks consist of puffs or goldfish. He gets three 6 oz sippy cups of formula and any other time he wants a drink he gets water with a splash of juice in it. I have also found that rather then cutting things up into small pieces (which can take awhile if you're trying to cut things up small enough) I use a hand chopper (something like the slap chop) after a couple of chops his meal is ready to go and I don't have to clean the whole food processor.

My son is 10 months old and he eats anything from Stage three jar foods, to table food and a bottle with every meal. Breakfast is some fruit or eggs and an 8 oz bottle and a 4 oz bottle with lunch and sometimes snacks if hes still hungry. also my son loves the gerber graduate puffs and gerber cookies and pretty much all the snacks they have.

My daughter has trouble with teh jarred stage three foods with chunks. The does, however, like gerber puffs and any of those snack type foods. I'm not shre if it's a texture thing or not but she just won't do it. I will continue to try them with her aand different textured foods, but you are not alone! :)

My Oct 30th boy, now 10mnths, eats what we eat! He has weetbix or porridge with milk for breakfast, lunch is anything from scrambled eggs, tuna on toast, half an Avocado, Marmite, Jam or cream cheese sandwich just depends on where we are and what I am having! Dinner is what we have pasta dishes, meat & Veg just cut up for him to eat, he now insists on feeding himself so I am teaching him to use a spoon & fork! He loves his bits of veggies Broccoli, carrot, chunks of pumpkin or potato, peas what ever we have! He also loves cheese sticks, slices or even Feta chunks, lots of fruit his Favorites are Banana, Rockmelon & Kiwi. His LOVES Yogurt, this is a challenge when he wants to feed himself, BOY what a MESS!

My baby girl will eat just about anything! She will eat whatever we are eating, she especially likes things she can pick up and eat herself. I always have Gerber Puffs on me at all time.. its not only a good snack on the run but it will keep her busy if I need a second to do something. She really likes turkey, I tear it up into bite size pieces for her to pick up.

My daughter gets whatever we're having, save honey. We do baby-led solids/weaning. A whole piece of toast, a drumstick, slices of cucumber, peppers, a bowl of oatmeal, a slice of cheese, scrambled eggs, slices of oranges, peaches, you name it. She nurses on average, 2-3 times an hour.

My daughter is ten months. For breakfast she gets oatmeal and formula. For lunch she gets butterd bread sometimes with jelly. I rip the pieces small. She gets a number 3 jar of fruit and her formula. For supper she gets what we get, I just put it in a food chopper. In a bind she is able to eat the gerber graduates 6oz cups of food. For snacks she gets the gerber puffs or yogurt melts.

Same as the rest of the family (without fried stuff, salt or crazy spices). Cut into small pieces, she prefers "real" food to baby food (Graduates Microwave foods are a good life saver)

How long has he been having trouble? My daughter choked on cherrios the first time I gave her one. My Pedi told us to wait a few days, she gaged it down the next time, we gave it a few days... fourth times a charm. Now she eats pea sized food no problem. She even feeds herself with a preloaded spoon. She can't scoop up the food yet.

My daughter mostly eats what we eat just in smaller pieces. She loves pasta, avocado, bananas are her fave, cherrios, yogurt, cheese, any fruit. I'm having a little trouble with the veggies. I can't get her to eat them anymore she used to love them now she won't eat peas or green beans. She likes sweet potatoes and squach. We're going to try some cantalope next week.



Our son loves cantalope! He seems to really enjoy melon so we recently branched out and tried a melon that I've never heard of before called Santa Claus Melon. He loved it! It's tasty! I live in Seattle and we have several specialty grocery stores throughout the city whcih makes exploring different foods very fun! Good luck with the cantalope! I hope that your daughter enjoys :)

Our son eats pretty much eats what we eat. He loves all fruits and veggies and loves chicken! I stopped salting our foods when our son started eating solids at 6 months. At first I would puree all of his foods and then at 8 months I started just mashing them up. I follow the food pyramid to be sure that we are meeting his nutritional needs. For snacks he loves string cheese, cheddar bunnies (they are like goldfish crakers), fresh fruit, yogurt and and so on, he does really well with finger foods and loves to feed himself. I've always made our son's food fresh and homemade :) It's way tastier then that jarred food stuff! It does take some time but well worth every minute!

My daughter (10/20/08) gets all homemade food, although there is nothing wrong with jar food. I did homemade because my Pedi recommended it. You can get a list of foods from http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/. For dinner, she usually eats what we eat as long as it isn't something she’s not supposed to have yet. Good luck. Avocados and cut up grapes are her favorites.

Pretty much the same diet as us now, within limits. No added salt or sugar and obviously keeping him away from the spicy stuff!

Mash things up where possible or cut in to tiny pieces.H e has had six teeth for quite a while now, so he can handle the chunkiness.

I add creme fraiche if something is too dry and to help with the mashing if needed.

I've been feeding my 10 mth old twins the basic 2nd stage jar foods like veggies, fruit and the dinners. For snacking, I like to give them the YoBaby yogurt from Yoplait - they love it. Also for snacking I give them the Gerber Graduates Puffs. They haven't grasped the picking it up to eat it by themselves yet, but it introduces them to the concept. You can also do things yourself, like mash up fresh bananas and certain other things. As long as you mush it up enough, you can feed them almost anything when it comes to fruits and veggies. The dinners I would leave to the jar food though.
