My advice is to start out simple. Begin with rice cereal, to get her into the swing of things. If you make your own just cook brown rice until very well done and puree in a blender with water, until creamy. Heat and serve.
For next addidtions I cooked carrots and pureed in blender. I stuck with each new food for a few weeks before introducing another new one, to be sure he didn't react to it.
After carrots, I added green beans, then sweet potatos, then winter squash, then avocados, then apple sauce, then stewed pears, then beets, then sweet peas, then lentils...
Now he's 10.5 months old (still mainly bf's) but loves to eat! He now eats rice cakes and unsalted rye crackers on his own and occassionally has a bit of rice milk. I don't give him any juices or dairy. I think next month I'll try making him oatmeal.
