    I think maybe.. 8-9 months. My boy took too solids. I just made sure he was ready for them and had a bit of teeth in there first. Though I'm sure the teeth aren't needed since the food will be soft anyways.

    We started Baby Led Solids/Baby Led Weaning (BLS/BLW) at 6 months. Some of his firsts were ripe mango, steamed sweet potato, and avocado.

    We started at six months, too, with chunks of avocado (he preferred them mashed with chunks of banana and a little breast milk at first), banana, and sweet potato (about a week apart).

    From the beginning - DS started solids at 6 mo following baby led solids guidelines.

    He nibbled, but didn't really eat much until he was about 8 or 8.5 mo old.

    He ate foods that are naturally soft (avocado, pear, other fruits), or we cooked foods until they were soft enough for me to eat without using my teeth. Most items got steamed, things like sweet potatoes got baked until soft then cooled.
