Re: Solids & EBF 8 month old
don't worry about the milestones yet, at 8 months. she'll get it. check out "baby led weaning" or "baby led solids" threads on this forum - even if you don't want to try that direction (i recommend it, though!), hopefully it will reassure you that your daughter will figure out the eating thing when she needs to. there's really no need to have a "track". you can definitely give her bananas or puffs now if you want. we also started with big hunks of meat on the bone - DS could gum and gnaw and get just a little meat or really mostly flavoring and he loved it.
