I'm curious to know if any of you put off the introduction of solid foods. My boy is just over 7 months old, and I've started introducing solids in the last couple of weeks. I thought he was ready...watching us closely as we ate, reaching out for our plates etc, but when it comes to actually trying the food, I feel like he could take it or leave it. I think he's more interested in the spoon than what's on it!
What about feeding him chunks of soft food? I'm wondering if he's interested, but would rather feed himself. It's kind of hard for a baby to feed themselves pureed food...but would chunks of cooked soft food be safe? What size should the food be cut down to? I guess I'm thinking about before Magic Baby Bullets and food processors and blenders. I imagine moms either chewed the food first, or just gave babe really soft pieces.
