I have a couple questions about solids for my 9 mo old son. We exclusively bf until 6 months and then did homemade baby food (except for iron-fortified rice cereal and oatmeal). He has had a good variety to-date and seems to really enjoy eating.

We have been doing the slow progression of adding a new food about every four days. I wonder when the one food at a time routine ends...in other words, when can my LO start eating new foods at any point (It doesn't seem possible that I'd have to introduce every food to him for four days until all are introduced, but maybe it is!).

Also, when is it ok to stop giving him iron fortified cereals (we don't do iron drops)?

Thanks for any insight.
