My baby is 7 months. We did some purees and are now mostly just on breastmilk again for constipation issues. But he does have two teeth part way in. Today I was eating a pear cut up into pieces. HE really really wanted to suck on a piece! So I took a big sized piece and let him suck on it but I was so scared that he would bite off a chunk and then choke on it! He actually did bite off a little piece and I took it out of his mouth. I know logically, if he has teeth then he is probably ready to chew? but I was so scared of that- so I just let him suck on it while holding on to it and checking often to make sure no little pieces broke off. How do you guys give similarly aged babie's chunks of food without worrying about choking? Ds would probably like it if I gave him chunks to hold and eat and play with but I am too nervous!
