Re: BLS and choking?
Yes, you can combine BLS and purees in any way that works for you and your LO!
I personally don't like apple chunks or slices as a first food. Unless they're steamed, they are too hard for a baby to chew, but a baby can nip off a fairly large piece and choke. I don't care what the website says. Choking is a risk, and you need to offer foods that are the right size- which means that they are either small enough to slide down baby's throat or too large to swallow. If you're going to offer apple, I suggest giving baby a bit of grated apple or a whole peeled apple to lick and play with.
