    how old?? 9 months 1 week
    when did you start?? 6.5 months
    first food?? avacado*
    what else have you given??
    oatmeal
    bananna*
    carrots
    lima beans*
    chick peas
    green beans
    sweet potato/white potato*
    apple(sauce)
    pears
    o's soaked in bm
    scrambled eggs (no milk) (after MUCH consideration! lol)

    so far we have kept everything organic and used gerber for only the grn beans, pears and oatmeal...sweet potatos made ds really gassy and my mil gave him rice cereal once which also made him gassy

    Cool thread. We've been really slow with our foray into the world of solids (hence the thread I started ) but here's what we've done so far:

    how old?
    9 mos, 1 weekish (4/10/06)

    when did you start?
    I let my parents give dd some rice cereal at 5 months-ish because they really wanted to and physically, she was ready, so I indulged them. After that she didn't have food again until just over 6 months

    first food?
    Aside from the aforementioned rice cereal, avocado and banana (don't remember which one she actually ate first.)

    what else have you given?
    Yams
    O's *
    Oatmeal *
    Plain Yoghurt
    Applesauce/steamed apples (mixed with either yoghurt or oatmeal)
    Crust from my bread
    Cheddar cheese (she was not a fan!)
    Matzah (she really liked it )
    ETA: Watermelon
    ETA: Zucchini
    tonight...Spinach! She was kind of confused by it, I think

    ETA: We are doing mostly self-feeding, with the exception of yoghurt/applesauce, and though we've offered all these things, some of them have only made it as far as a lick. Spinach was one of them, until I stuffed some in an O...heehee...sly mama.

    How old? 10 months

    When did you start? gave some rice cereal to see if she was ready to "swallow" just before 5 months... she did great, but then, after more research, we stopped the cereal and didn't offer her anything til 6 months


    First food? after the cereal episode it was banana


    What else have you given? (introduced a new food every 4-5 days over the last 4 months)

    Fresh foods:
    *banana
    *avocado
    *pear
    *apple
    *blueberries
    *canteloupe

    Steamed foods:
    *apple
    *pear
    *sweet potato
    *carrot (bothered her bum, so we stopped that one)
    *green beans (not a big fan)
    *zuchini
    *yellow squash
    *broccoli (again, not a big fan)

    Cooked foods:
    *brown rice
    *lentils
    *pinto beans
    *chicken
    *oatmeal
    *rice cereal

    *Rice Chex
    *mozzarella cheese/string cheese
    *unsweetened applesauce

    *whole grain crackers (I rub off the outside of the cracker to get rid of as much salt as possible)

    How old?
    Jaden is 9 1/2 months old (born on 4/5/6).

    When did you start?
    We first offered solids at just before 6 months, but she wasn't interested. We backed off but continued to offer, using some different things. Finally, around 7 1/2 or 8 months, she started to show some interest.

    First food?
    The first food we offered was banana.

    What other foods have you tried?
    Hhmmm...
    Oatmeal- she hates it
    Banana- remains a favorite
    Applesauce
    Peaches
    Pears- she doesn't like the texture
    Prunes
    Apricots
    Sweet Potato- also a favorite
    Carrots- she loves
    Green Beans
    Peas
    Spinach
    Pinto Beans- she gags on
    Cereal Bars
    String Cheese
    YoBaby Yogurt

    She still doesn't like any of the green vegetables, but we continue to offer them. She used to eat them mixed with banana, but I guess she's figured us out now. Sometimes she'll eat them if I mix in some carrots. I'm also always looking for new things to introduce, but she seems to gag so easily, and when she does, she ALWAYS throws up. After that, she refuses to continue eating...

    cool! so i have a few questions

    blueberries....do you take them out of the skin? cut them in half? (thats what i do with lima beans and chick peas, just smush them out and put them on his tray)

    papaya...i know NOTHING about....how do you buy it? (like, avacado should be a little soft and you know its ripe) how do you serve it, and what does it even look like in the grocery store??

    ww pasta.....cut up? my dr suggested elbows....dr sears says spaghetti picking is fun....dr said dont do it....how about rotinis??

    spinach.....just steamed and cut up??

    chicken and turkey....shreds? or 'baby food'?

    and finally, for fruit, do you shave a little bit off?? i have only given him pureed baby food fruit... (we started with child led...but i was too freaked out too many times...for the most part i put stuff on his tray and he gets it in his mouth just fine even if he has to lick in off his palm!

    How old? 11 months

    When did you start? 6 months, didn't willingly ingest anything until 8.5

    First food? Offered avacado, then sweet potato and finally, desperately, brown rice cereal, only ever swallowed the cereal. First thing he enjoyed and willingly ate was butternut squash at 8.5 months.

    What he eats:

    butternut squash*
    sweet potato*
    banana*
    Joe's O's*
    acorn squash
    apples cooked with cinnamon
    watermelon
    chicken seasoned with herbs de provence
    broccoli
    cauliflower
    peas
    carrots
    zucchini
    havarti cheese
    muenster cheese
    shredded cheddar cheese
    whole milk plain yogurt
    Thanksgiving turkey (during the short time that was available!)

    Things we've tried that he rarely eats or doesn't like:
    pears
    whole wheat pasta
    mango
    avacado
    blueberries

    Things on the short list for introduction in the few couple weeks:

    green beans
    chickpeas
    other beans (like white beans) for protein
    bell pepper
    raspberries

    Everything he eats is self-fed, including the yogurt. He's an independent little guy- who loves his veggies!

    How Old : 9 months, 3 weeks

    When did you start: 6 months, 1 week

    First Food: Banana...we are doing baby-led and we gave him a big piece...he picked it right up and sort of nursed it! It was funny...he seemed to really enjoy it!

    What he eats:
    He LOVES: oatmeal, watermelon, cantalope, peas, carrots, couscous, brown rice, applesauce, plain yoghurt, pasta (whole wheat and brown rice), white potato, sweet potato, o's, banana, butternut squash, winter squash, zuchinni, summer squash

    He also eats: broccoli, cauliflower, chick peas, white beans, tofu (cooked and uncooked), whole wheat toast, hummus, avocado, apple, spinach, mushrooms, green beans, lentils, soba noodles

    Today we gave him cottage cheese for the first time and he loved it! He was so sweet picking up the little curds He's tried everything we've offered him and doesn't seem to have any great dislikes at this point. I have a mango ripening to try later this week. He is CRAZY about watermelon and cantalope and loves drinking water out of a cup.

    Wow. We are really behind it seems. Partially because I am having a hard time finding good produce, so I just skip it and do bm instead.

    Age: 9 months
    First food: Banana

    What she will actually eat
    banana
    squash
    cooked apple
    cooked pear

    What we have tried
    avacado
    peaches
    oatmeal
    sweet potato
    green beans
    carrots
    white potato
    Plain yogurt with banana
    And a few various other things I can't think of right of now or family has fed her.

    My DS would eat anything when he was a baby and now is super picky. Mia won't hardly eat anything now. I am hoping she will also go the opposite extreme and like all kinds of things as a kid.
