Hi, I have a little boy who is 9 1/2 months old . He is not too interested in food yet. . . will take a couple of bites each day.I first intro'ed food to him when he was 7 1/2 months old. So far we have tried, rice cereal, peas, beans, corn, carrots, mashed potatoes, noodles, apples, pears, and his FAVORITE cheerios . For everything but the Cheerios I use my food mill to mash up the food into a lumpy consitency. But he seems to like the Cheerios the best because he can self feed himself the bite size pieces. What other types of finger foods have any of you given to your little ones? I am afraid to give too much because I am afraid my son will choke (he seems to have a terrific gag reflex, which the dr said will go away as he matures) He doesn't any any teeth yet so he just gums everything. He is becoming so independent now that I think he would prefer to feed himself with his own fingers than have me give it to him on a spoon. Any suggestions on what food to try?
