    Default Starting Wheat

    I'm thinking of introducing DS to wheat soon. I was wondering how you did it. I'm not sure what to give him to start.
    Thanks!

    If your son is doing finger foods, I'd suggest whole wheat toast cut into sticks (like the size of your pinky). My DD still loves those.

    Just make sure the bread you use doesn't have eggs if you haven't introduced them. Most don't, but it's worth a check.

    Can I use this thread to ask when IS it okay to offer toast? I gave DD a piece of whole wheat toast this morning, thinking it would be a start for self-feeding, but the toast was breaking off into big chunks and I was expecting it to more melt off as she sucked on it.

    Also, what age to introduce wheat?

    I never thought about the egg part. Thanks!

    I assume that you can start with it, as Lexa's Mom Julie suggested but I'd like to know too!

    I believe it's 8 or 9 months.
