Solid foods

My son is 5 mths old and has been eating 1st foods since he was 3 mths. He is sitting up on his own and has started some 2nd foods (friuits and veggies). In the 2nd foods there i also meats, meals, mixed grains, and some finger foods....should I start those as well? When did you introduce these foods.

Things like meats and grains you can start anytime. Just introduce them the same way you do fruits and veggies. I would wait a little longer for finger foods, but if you really want to try them, I suggest something like Gerber Puffs (or any brand of the same sort of thing, it's just the first one I remember). They dissolve, so if he doesn't have the hang of chewing them, he shouldn't choke.
