Feeding your baby solid food

Jackie - posted on 01/21/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




My daughter is 7 1/2 months old now and she is eating rice cereal, stage 2 fruits and veggies. We just started to give her Gerber puffs and I gave her a biter biscuit today. Is this okay to give her or should I be waiting a little longer?

It's funny you asked this because I just gave my 7 1/2 month old her first biter biscuit today as well. She loved it and handled it much better than I though she would. I was so excited! My oldest is 21 months and was about the same age as Emma when I gave her biscuits as well so I'd say as long as your daughter is doing well with them then it's okay. :)

i'd be giving it to her. this is what i feed my 7 month old girl. I refuse to use store brought baby foods unless im in a situation where im out and have nothing else to give my daughter. i give her rice cereal, scrambled eggs or weet bix for breakfast, fruit for lunch and vegetables and meat for dinner. I was advised with eggs that if there is no family history with allergies i could give them to her now, so she has been having them for about 2 weeks including the white part with no reaction. In regards to what i give her, the fruits she has are, kiwi fruit, water melon, rock melon, apples, pears, banana, nectrines, oranges, mangos and avacados. and the vegetables include sweet potato, potatoe, pumpkin, squash, beans, peas, spinach, broccoli, cauilflower, chokos, zucchini and carrots. she loves all her foods and i make sure i dont completly puree them, i usually just mash them with a fork or potato masher so she is learning to chew and use the mouth muscles and she rarely chokes, has once or twice but its usually with something i have given her to chew on and she has broken a piece off. I have been feeding her most of this since she was 5 1/2 months old. good luck with it.
