    Default Babyled solids

    So, we are doing it full force now. By "it" I mean solids. And all at his own pace with him (mostly) feeding himself. I do occasionally give him tastes of stuff off my finger, because he desperately wants it and it stops his incessant fussing at mealtimes. Here is the list of his foods, and I am interested in hearing some new ideas with these foods as well as good new foods to intro. We had blood in his stool after peaches, but it could also have been something in my diet. Either way, we are holding the peaches for now.

    Apple slices, raw
    Banana slices
    Avocado, mashed and chunked and sliced
    Sweet potato fries
    Carrots (cooked and raw)
    Cherries
    Pear slices
    Oatmeal

    How about peas? They are always a challenge to chase around the tray

    We loved millet puffs and rice puffs too.

    One of D's first foods was mango. How about watermelon?

    And cheerios?
    ANd Plums?
    And Broccoli.
    And Snap Peas.
    Raw Bell Peppers.
    I'm down for as much raw fresh food as possible.
    But Cooked Broccoli was a big hit at that age. Sauteed in Buttr and garlic.

    Ooooh, we HAVE done watermelon! He loves it....



    Cheerios have wheat and butter is dairy, so both of those should wait.

    I think i will try some red bell pepper tomorrow and get some peas at the store for the next food. Thanks!

    Why are you waiting on Wheat? And my understanding is that MILK is hard on ttheir systems but not other dairy like Yogurt and Cheese we did before a year. Didn't you with Haylee?
    Do you think he has Allergies?

    Well, he's had blood in his stool on numerous occasions, so I'm not ruling allergies out yet. Yogurt is okay at a younger age than other dairy, but even our ped recommended waiting on dairy until after 12 months. Haylee had yogurt before 12 months, and maybe some cheese, but not until at least 11 months, that I can remember. Wheat is in the top 8 for allergens as well.

    were the peaches fresh?
    maybe the corn syrup in the canned was what bothered him?

    Nope, dried, by my SIL, w/o any additives.
