    My daughter was 5 months. I was pressured and LO kept trying to steal my food. She didn't like it, so I stopped. Then she was 5 1/2 months when she started eating finger foods, like peas. She still hates to be spoon fed and if anyone comes at her with a spoon I lose it. grrrr I hate the idea of forcing a kid to eat.

    we went the Baby led solids route and started offering food at 6 months... she pretty much just played in it and didn't even eat aything till around 7.5 months.

    A good book that we read when we were thinking of going the BLS route was Baby led weaning by gill rapley

    11 months. her weight was in the 97 percentile and we did BLS. she is 16 months now and her solid food appetite is picking up and her weight and iron levels are great. we still nurse 8-12 times a day.
