My son is nearly 11 months. He has weetbix mixed with stewed fruit or yoghurt, porridge or scrambled eggs for breakfast. Lunch is usually whatever I have in the fridge (leftover veges etc from night before), baked beans, spaghetti,cheese on toast etc and tea is whatever we are having. He is still on formula but only at night. I am going to start cows milk in the next week or so. He has just got his fifth tooth so I give him basically anything he can manage to chew. For snacks he has cheese, rice crackers, cruskits, fruit and my 2 1/2 yr old loves giving him his crusts off his sandwiches. He soon lets me know if he doesnt like anything....

My daughter has an 8 oz bottle of formula upon waking up in the morning. After her first nap, rice cereal with mixed fruit and a jar of fruit... usually bananas or apple/blueberry which is her favorite. After next nap, another 8 oz bottle, then a jar of vegetables and puree meat. She has no teeth yet so all baby food and puree for her!

hello, my baby boy will 1 on june 11th. he only has one tooth he just got in on the bottom. i'm really struggling feeding him the last few weeks. he's loosing intrest in the "baby foods" but since he has only one tooth i'm afraid to give him much table food. he's breastfed at night and for naptimes, he sometimes has a formula bottle when he wakes in the night if my nipples are soar (i'm 15 pregnant with our second) and for the last 3 weeks he's been drinking whole milk during the day. he loves mac n cheese, or any other kind of bigger noodle. i give him green beans, peas, cooked carots, baked beans and mashed potatos. oh and bread.
he doesn't seem to swallow eggs, angel hair pasta or spaghetti noodles very well though and i'm afraid to give him meat. he's had very small pieces of chicken a couple times but it scares me as a chocking hazard. i really need some ideas of safe things for no teeth!!

Upon waking my son nurses. For breakfast he has some oatmeal with flax seeds and some fruit. Then he nurses again for a nap. When he wakes from his nap he has some vegetables cut up in small pieces and some avocado or quinoa. He nurses again for a nap, and for dinner he has some vegetables (whatever we are having) and some pasta rice, beans, or quinoa. Then he nurses again before bed, and once at midnight(mainly for comfort since we co-sleep). We are vegan, so no meats or dairy.

My daughter is fitting in with the rest of the household. She has cereal for breakfast - usually Rice Bubbles or Cheerios. Lunch is a sandwich & a piece of fruit. Dinner is what we have - meat & vegies mostly & then a yogurt. She is also breast fed 2-3 times a day. Occasionally has a cup of milk with her lunch - only started this since 10 months. My 1st daughter is extremely fussy & only eats chicken nuggets & chips, Peanut Butter & Jam sandwiches. Drives me nuts. So with this bubba she tries everything & gives everything a go. There are a few things she won't touch & that's cool - we all do that.

for breakie she has weetbix or muesli with apple...sometimes even toast. Lunch she mostly has a yoghurt with fruit and if she hasn't had a toast for breakie then i give her a toast then and for dinner she has meat and vegies, chicken soup, pasta with lentils and even things we may have. We slowly are trying to introduce to her what we are eating

My daughter mostly nurses. She eats when we eat. She LOVES avacado with a hint of salt. She also likes to just gnaw on apples. We're working on fruits and veggies first, then start grains after a year, and introduce one thing each week, so that if she has a problem with anything, I will know what it is. Anyway, if I have a fruit or veggie that she has already tried, I let her have some of mine. It works well for us. :-) And she gets included in every meal she is awake for. :-p

My son is still on baby food for morning and lunch and usually just eats whatever we are having for dinner. He loves baby food an doesn't seem to want to give it up.

My son is 10 1/2 months and he has been eating "big boy" (table) food for a while now. For breakfast he usually still eats the baby cereal (for the iron) mixed with breastmilk. Lunch varies--yogurt, turkey, ravioli, cheese, "sandwich," veggies, fruits. He eats most anything though he fights my mil with the cereal and lunch lately for some reason. For dinner he'll usually eat whatever my family is eating! Anything from pasta/spaghetti with sauce to "burritos" (we'll save some of the ground meat out for him without spicing it up, and some of the beans before the taco powder, and he eats that with some small pieces of the wheat tortillas we use to make the burritos for ourselves). But anyway his diet varies! We try to just make sure he gets a lot of different things. I usually give him a snack of yogurt or cheese or something in the evenings before bed too, and he gets a snack between meals (Gerber puffs, cheerios, Gerber graduates crunchies, etc).

My daughter eats table food. Has been since she was 9 months old. For breakfast she eats cereal, muffin, pancakes or fruit with milk or juice. Lunch time i'll feed her chicken nuggets, soup, with a veg or what ever I am eating with milk or juice. In between meals i give her snacks of finger foods like cookies or yougurt. Dinner seh eats either corn or peas, a meat and fruit and some milk. Today she is 11 months so I tried her on cow milk. I am slowley weaning her off of formula.

Hi Jeanne,

My daughter has weetbix for breakfast, sometimes she will eat a bit of vegemite toast as well.
For lunch it might be a sandwich and fruit or yoghurt or some veggies and egg.
Dinner is usually a variation of what I cook for hubby and I. Lots of casseroles, veggies, chicken/pork/beef, frittata, pasta, rice etc. Always varied thougfh alot ends up on the floor.
My daughter loves homemade chicken patties, meatballs, frittata, scrambled eggs, pasta shells with sauce. Anything easy to hold on to.
Hope that helps!
