My son is 8 months today and I would like to introduce some finger foods. I've seen the puffs and other finger foods that disolve in a baby's mouth, but I'm not so sure about the ingredients. Some have artificial flavors as well, which we are totally against. What types of finger foods have some of you used for your baby?

everything everyone has listed is good, and you can also try baked squash/sweet potato/yam cubes since they are in season still. Avocado is great too, though it isn't in season now.

Any veggie or fruit steamed and cut into small pieces is good. For teething you can put strips of bread in the oven and cook at 250 for an hour. It dries out the bread. Store bought Teething biscuits unless organic have a lot of sugar in them. You can also give cubes of tofu. You can also buy nuby nibbler......mesh bag with handle, you can put fruit or veggies in it and they can chew on that without worry about choking...or put in frozen fruit when they are teething. My son loved it

Haven't used any yet since i am preggo with my first, but I've been reading a lot about this stuff.  Soft fruits like banana, watermelon, steamed carrot, steamed anything really....as long as it's soft, and then they are tasting and eating real food as opposed to getting hooked on processed cereals.  I've also heard a good trick for teething that helps babies get used to new flavors.  Give them a big stalk of refridgerated celery to chew on.  They can't bite anything off to choke on, and it is very soothing on the gums.
