    Default Bored with Purees

    Me, not her.

    I make most of DD's food, but I am getting so tired of pureeing stuff! Her purees are really thick now, and I'm wondering when/how to transition to small soft pieces. She loves to feed herself, I just don't know how to get away from all the purees. Is it too early? She's 8 1/2 mos. I started cubing little pieces of avocado and "dusting" them in cheerio crumbs so she can grab them, but I need more suggestions.

    Soft cooked pasta?
    Cottage cheese?
    Shredded Chicken?

    TIA!

    Look at threads that say BLS. Or "baby led solids".

    my lo has had sweet potato, butternut squash, pear & banana and none are purees

    if your LO has a good pincher grip then lots of finger foods

    cheerios
    pasta
    blueberries
    peas
    beans

    cubes of wheat bread (white bread will stick to baby's mouth)
    banana pieces
    cooked macaroni
    shredded cheese
    cheerios
    cooked cubed zucchini

    And just a reminder that for now, table food is mostly for fun, not as much for nutrition. Most food should be from Mom for the first year....

    DD still nurses up to 10 times a day ... I don't think she even thinks of solids as food, just fun.

    i just started not mashing the bananas as well, leaving little chunks in. the first couple times he didn't like it, but now he's fine with it, and he's the same age as yours.
