Just fruits and vegetables, soft ones that he can eat on his own. Quaid loves pears, bananas and avocados. I puree my own fruits and vegetables to give to him, just boil them and put them in the food processor. I tried some hamburger but it was really really gross!! He eats cereal too. I think I might try some pasta soon.

Some things I do.... like mashed up bananas, Yo Baby yogurt, we've tried the Gerber Puffs but I'm afraid of Cheerios and stuff b/c those are hard!

We also try to feed her exclusively table food. She spits up A LOT if we feed her "baby food" so we don't like giving it to her. Plus, she really doesn't like it as much as our food. We feed her just about everything in small bites. She even feeds herself if possible (like bites of bread, green beans, etc.). She loves it.

THis is really all my son will eat! I make his own food too so what I do is have a bunch of frozen pureed food in the freezer and take one out and mix it with whatever we are having so he gets the extra veggies. He really seems to like spaghetti!

I give my son table food, but only if it's mashed of course :) He's been eating what we eat for some time now.

Sure have! Of course quite a bit of it I grind up in the blender. I gave him homemade spaghetti sauce and noodles yesterday. HE LOVED It. He kept grunting when he wanted more. I figured it is healthier then the jarred food. And little pieces of cheese, soft things of course. Yes my son too loves the bananas. Your dr is smart that is what my dr also says!!!

My son was EBF until we started solids around 4 months. I wanted wait until 6 mos, but it just didn't work out for us, he showed all the signs for being ready. He now (8 1/2 mos) eats all table food and refuses baby food at all (mostly homemade and organic). He LOVES tomatos and does pretty well with spices. He enjoys flavorful food, but I try to stay away from the salt. He enjoyed some pesto tonight.

Definitely. I strictly breastfed until about 5 1/2 months old and then started on pureed homemade food. She started eating table food about 4 weeks later so long as it was mashed up. She never really liked the squishy baby food. She actually ate slices of balck olives & beets from my salad last night - hope she continue to eat everything and not get picky. I still worry about cheerios, "Graduate" snacks, etc because she tends to choke a bit on them. I suppose I'll give them to her more as I get more comfortable.

Oh yeah... can't forget the cheerios! My son loves the yogurt flavored one. I also read to try giving them little smoothies. My son LOVES that.

Hey! If I have something that doesn't have any spice or added salt or anything I will give it to my daughter! Little pices of fruit, meats, that sort of thing! I also started the cheerios and she really likes those!

I have! My son didn't start any solids until 6 months of age. Not even a taste. Then we started with the cereal and then went on pretty quickly with the other foods. About a month ago I started giving him taste of what was on my plate. He lost interest in the mushy baby food pretty soon after that (I'm sure a lot of it has to do with teething). Now he eats yogurt and whole grain oatmeal for breakfast, Graham Crackers, Goldfish, or Crackers and about 1/4 of a banana for a snack, and some baby food and bits of what my husband and i are eating for dinner. I talked to my doctor about it and he said it was perfectly fine and that babies get all their nutrional needs from breastmilk or formula anyway. Table food is just for kicks at their age anyway. :)
