You can really try a lot with her... Soft things but she is old enough to start having more than just baby food. You can try small pieces of softer fruit, like watermelon or peaches. You can also try dry cheerios with her and crackers, she is old enough to try those things;they just turn to mush in their mouth anyways. Pancakes are soft enough to try, just make sure there is not a bunch of cooking oil on them. Even small noodle are okay for her to start trying. My son is just turning ten months old and he gets almost anything we have as long as it's soft enough for him to mush up in his mouth with his gums. Don't be scared to try new things with her, she won't learn if you don't let her try! :)

Mashed potatoes, mashed carrots, pastina (like coucous, but smaller, can buy it in the baby food aisle) soft rice, basically anything that is mashed. My 8 1/2 month old loves table food, but sometime has a hard time with the texture, and thinks she is gagging, then she vomits, so be careful, watch closely when she is eating. Just give her a little, at this age they like the independence of picking up their food and putting it in their mouths. I would still feed baby food as the main source of solids until she is a few months older. My daughter doesnt like stage three food, she doesnt like the soft texture with the chunks, she wants either smooth or chunky not both. So I think I am going to skip stage three and go to table food when she is ready.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

 Thank you! That gives me more ideas..and yes.. her doctor said that he doesn't even recommend stage 3 ...
