By baby food do you mean jars? I understand, they're horrible! I just waited until my boy could pick and eat the same food we eat. No need for bottled mush at all. If he loves table food why do you need him to have baby food? Just because it's manufactured doesn't mean it's compulsory.

I agree with Vicki! just make sure you are cutting the table food into small enough pieces that he doesn't choke. Or you can get a table top food mill and just puree what you made for the family for dinner.

You can also blend your own "baby food" from the meals you are making, just add a little water or formula/BM to the process if it's a drier substance.
