If you delay solids to 12 months, what do first foods look like? Do you go right to table foods,...

My little peanut is almost 6 months, and I feel like she is nowhere near being ready for solids. I plan to wait  a little, possible 9-12 months and see how it goes. If we get to 12 months with no solids, what would be appropriate first foods for her? Any good links with research and info? Thanks mammas!

Have you heard of baby led weaning, or baby led solids? It is based on the idea of skipping pureed foods altogether. There is a lot of research behind it. I did it with my older DS and now we are starting with 7 mo old DS #2. its much more stress free in my opinion. Its worth looking into :)

My first child didn't want anything but the breast for thirteen months. Never took stung pureed. He began with finger foods he could feed himself, that didn't involve lots of chewing (he only had a couple teeth at the time). Hard scrambled eggs with his hands, a filet of pike perch that he could feed himself with his fingers... it's fine. My second was ready to eat with us at the table at nine months. He used utensils like he saw his big brother doing and loved rice and curry sauce on top! Nothing that involved tons of chewing but he has a lot more teeth at under one year of age so it worked out.

Breastmilk is enough for one year!
