    Question Alternatives to cheerios?

    We are doing bls and so far I've just given my lo large stick shaped fruits and veggies our whole fruits and veggies. She is def just playing/experimenting so far as she spits most of it out still. She is almost 8 mths and I think she is in the verge of learning the pincher grin and I want to give her some smaller pieces to play with but I'm not sure what is safe. Plus I done have access to cheerios or anything similar here and don't really feel the need to give her carbs yet. Anyone have suggestions?

    We use the Happy Baby Organic Puffs. They're like Cheerios, but dissolve quickly in their mouths. But be warned -- they stick to the babies' hands and mouths, so you'll find them all over the place.

    We did the same and liked them, but they are a mess. I'm not sure what you would have access to where you are at though.

    Pre-squashed blueberries or peas, maybe. Ideally, once she learns her pincher grip she is at a point where she can handle small soft things in her mouth, so as long as the food is soft or easily dissolves in her mouth it should be okay.
