What do you feed a 11 month old baby? Really on a schedule?

My daughter will be 11 months on Saturday. She eats pretty much what we do. She completely self feeds (except for apple sauce and yogurt) and drinks water with her meals. She is on a schedule (not a strict one, she sets it). Her day goes 7-7:30 wake up nurse 8:30-9 breakfast (eggs, toast, oatmeal, cheese, cheerios maybe fruit ect.) nurse 11-11:30 nap 1 lunch (fruit, veggie, cracker/bread, tofu/meat) 3-3:30 nurse nap 4:30-5 snack(goldfish/cheerios and/or fruit) 6:30-7 dinner (usually what ever we have spaghetti or meat and veggie ect.) 8-8:30 nurse bed. Hope this answered your questions.

My son will be 11 months next week but he isn`t a self feeder, so i still give him cereal in the morning with pureed fruits/cottage cheese; chicken soup or just pureed veggies for lunch and baked fish/eggs/beans/or meat; veggies for dinner and a yoghurt or shredded cheese, puffs or arrowroot cookies.

What kind of schedule? Yours or the baby's? In either case if they are just starting foods now try one new food a week to ensure there are no allergies. I started with baby food fruits and then moved up through the stages. By 11 months old the gerber graduates lines of food are excellent. And of course if you are a do it yourself mom you can make them on your own and divide them into smaller serving sizes. The cereals and puffs are also good because they dissolve in the mouth quicker than regular cereal which can choke them.

i fed my baby chicken soup made from scratch,squash,carrot ,callalou,porridge[for eg- oatmeal,cornmeal,etc].i will boil the squash or carrots and smash it with a little piece of margarine or sometimes i boil it with a piece of onion for flavor and he will eat all.then i introduce him to fresh fruits ,so he loves grapes[seedless] mangoes ,kiwi,plums and peach ,he doesn't like banana.i used to boil fish with the maggie chicken noodle soup[boneless fish] and he will eat it all up .so to make the chicken soup ,put to boil in a small pan 1piece of pumpkin,1 piece of carrot,1piece of onion,1piece of sweet potato ,1 piece of idaho potato with season chicken let it boils for awhile with pack of maggie chicken noodle until soft then put into blender chop for a split second and serve.let me know if you try it ,and how it went.all the best ,i hope he likes the soup.
By 11 months, they can be eating everything you are as long as there isn't any family allergy history. My son was slow to get his teeth, too, but those gums are very hard and any cooked or soft foods he could get into his mouth he ate. He ate meals with me, snacks in between and I breastfed on demand. (He gradually self-weaned completely by 14 months.) Have fun with feeding your little one!

Thank you! We tried chicken soup and he would eat that but soon as I put vegetables in he just spits it out. Only food he likes to eat is two kinds of cereal, custard and milk.Sometimes he would eat Minigo yogourt and that it. He is a picky littleone. Thank you again and we will try your recepie.

Andrea- Have you tried avocados? The don't have a lot of flavor. Mashed potatoes are kind of bland too. Also are you trying to feed him jar baby food? Maybe you could try some homemade foods. They usually taste better and he might like them. Sorry I don't have any better suggestions. Good luck.

By my 3rd and 4th I was feeding them mostly people food if it was soft enough. I found it cut down on pickiness.They basically ate whatever we ate chili, spaghetti, beans and ham, anything. Just make sure it is mashed or chopped well.

Depends on how many teeth and how good the baby is at eating certain things. I'm sure I'll get some responses saying I shouldn't but.. My little girl is 11 mo 2 weeks and has 8 teeth. She eats pretty much whatever we eat. Hamburgers, chicken, cookies, cheetos, cheerios, green beans,baby goldfish, hotdogs, pb&j..etc etc. Of course it is portioned down to her bite size.
I tend to do fruits and cereal/oatmeal in the morning, cheese and snack foods like gold fish or puffs for lunch, and veggies and meat for dinner (a duller/less spicey version of whatever we're eating that night). She gets water or juice during the day and a bottle at night.

i agree you have to try new foods for a wk to ensure that there are no allergies. i have always started with fruits and veggies. i have done mac n cheese, mash pot., viena sausages, anything that is soft and easy to chew and swallow. Texture is something i believe babies use to decide what they like and dont like, and of course taste. Jello, dry cereal, eggos, pancakes, oatmeal are some other things i have had great responses with. Just remember whatever you try make sure its cut up into tiny tiny pieces.

if you have already done all the stage 3 meals in a jar try with easy things like mashed potatos, squashes etc...if you want them to eat on their own cheerios and kids puffs are great for hand eye coordination....my almost 11 mos old eats everything we do in tiny little pieces from chicken to cooked baby carrots if you start giving them what your eating now (with exceptions of the no no's like honey, egg whites etc) then your life will be a lot easier
