    Gluten, dairy, soymilk, nuts (clearly not at this point for her). I don't really puree anything, maybe I should? I give her whatever I can smush.

    Allie when you give applesauce, does it have cinnamon in it or just plain applesauce?

    Tiff - really no reason to puree things. My "test" for starting BLS was whether I could eat the food using only my tongue & the roof of my mouth (new chewing with teeth). If yes then I was okay with giving it to DS#1. Once he got good at handling and eating food I was doing things like making risotto cakes that I'd cut into strips for him.

    PSA on cinnamon - it is an IRRITANT and can leave a red irritated looking FLAT "rash" on baby's skin. Probably not an issue if there is a small amount mixed into foods. DS#1 liked smelling the spice jars and got a big "rash" from the cinnamon har touching his face. We were a bit freaked out until I did research on cinnamon being an irritant.

    If avoiding gluten - there are also some quinoa pastas.

    Good going on the cinnamon.

    I'm not sure I want to start pasta just yet. We do rice or quinoa pasta but I'm afraid - no other reason than that.

    I'm getting kinda bored when it comes to feeding my 10.5 month old. He'll eat just about anything, but i've never been much of a cook so I dunno what to make for him! Usually every morning i give him shredded cheese and some fruit for an appetizer while i make breakfast for the house. THen i give him some scrambled eggs. he loves them! Every now and then i will give him a treat, toast with all fruit preserves. IT took a few times of me offering this for him to realize how good it was, then one day he went crazy over it!

    but the rest of the day I run out of ideas...When he stays with grandmas they feel more comfortable giving him baby food. So i buy earth's best stage 3 for when he's away from me. Although lately i find myself giving it to him too because there is always so much leftover and i dont want to waste it. Is this bad??

    And this week i've started making him some baby oatmeal with bm in the evening...not sure about this one yet...i mean he loves it, the kid will eat anything, i just have been doing BLS and know that i'm breaking all the rules!

    About the string cheese:

    I gave her the whole piece of string cheese the first time - that went the best. I have tried pulling off strings and other assorted ways to make the pieces smaller, thinking that I was doing her a favor and the best way so far is to just give her the whole thing - she takes less in her mouth at once that way - silly rabbit

    we have now had success with steamed peas and fresh blueberries. she loves picking them up, and they're fun for her to mush around in her mouth.

    Can a 6 month old have cheerios? If yes, does it have to be the regular kind (as opposed to the honey nut flavor)?

    So far we've tried avocado, steamed broccoli, sweet potatoes (baked in the oven), banana, apple, and steamed carrot. I think I'm gonna try mango next. Surprisingly he seemed to like the broccoli most of all.
