Regarding rashes: I think that's what happened to my DD, she got a huge drool rash on her upper chest - right where her chin hits her chest. I don't remember what she was eating when it happened, tho

I think it was Arwen who mentioned her baby liked Matzah, so does my girl! Good thing, too, since it's Passover right now.

Here are some pics

One of the cats observed the event. She looked puzzled. I imagine her thinking "I had thought he was a human, but maybe he is a cat after all."

Hvent been on this thread for a while, its great to see what all the babies have been up to! and great pics!

DS is now eating miniature (baby) apple-flavoured organic rice cakes (well, eating equals mostly sucking and playing with it, but 'chewing' (no teeth yet) n swallowing the odd bit!), dried organic mango (this is a popular one!), and as of this morning, tahini! He was grabbing for my rice cakes with tahini so i tried a bit with him. The tahini moustache was something to see ! he seemed to enjoy it.

i keep meaning to do more cooked veg, but just have been so busy and by the time we cook dinner he is in bed. he is showing more interest now - a couple weeks ago i posted that he wasnt, so i held off for a little bit.

People are looking for this thread. Since I bumped it, I will give an update.

DS is loving food. He is really into watermelon right now. I think it's because the cool rind feels good on his teething gums. He only has one tooth so the others must be getting ready to poke up. He is also very into corn on the cob. We cook it on the grill and he gums it forever.

Here are some pics

This is so much fun! My girl has eaten or experimented with watermelon, sweet potato, broccoli, zuch/squash, pear, apple.

My question is...
when the food is slippery and I am soooo tempted to help her get to it. Am I defeating the purpose of her learning process. Possibly pushing her before she is developmentally ready?

This is my question. Ds wants the food. When he gets it he loves it. Sometimes its just too slippery. And he gets frustrated, but if i help him out, he's happy. Is that so wrong?

my son has now had food twice. the first time yam and he managed to probably eat some and then we waited over a week because i felt he wasn't really ready and last night he had some carrots. he managed to get some in his mouth and then he spit it out after a while. i am worried about allergies so not letting him share whats on my plate. i really like doing this baby led. he wants to play with food and eat when he see's me and dp eating and emotionally he is totally ready to stick his hands in the food and he shows all the signs of being physically ready but i'm not so sure he is and that he isn't actually eating sorta of tells me i am right about that.

does anyone feel sad about starting solids? part of me was cheering inside that he didn't actually eat any carrot. i love breast feeding and i love providing nourishment for him and i know that right now food is for playing and experimenting but i feel sad about it as a sign that he is growing up. i dunno it is also fun and exciting i don't just feel sad.

I've read bits & pieces of this thread and am very interested. DD hasn't started solids yet other than when I let her lick an apple and suck avocado off my finger one day. What foods do you start with? With my first dd I mainly followed what was in Dr Sears book. She never had thin purees, just kind of thick ones from 6-8mths and then food after that. I'm just not sure how to get started.

Yeah it didn’t hit me until a LLL meeting last month where the topic was introducing solids. They started by saying as soon as your baby wants solids and starts eating solids, you are in the weaning process. I got all teary and in my head was thinking “no way!!! Not my baby! We are not weaning” lol it was so silly. They went on to have a very great discussion about how you start the weaning process at 6 months but it can last for 2 or 3 more years. It’s all child driven. So yeah, I was sad at first but now we are having so much fun with food and I know he loves the milk more then food so I still feel good.

About the slippery food. I will put the food in DS’s hand if it’s really slippery and he keeps dropping it. He has a pretty good grip though and doesn’t need much help. I never actually put food into DS’s mouth though.

Hi, mamas! My DS is over 7mo and hasn't had any solids yet at all. I've been waiting as he's been spitting up more and has had some unusual stool patterns lately, so I'm trying to figure out if he's got a sensitivity to something or if we just haven't been seeing the chiro enough.

But, there are days (like today!) when it seems perfectly natural to hand him a bit of what we're eating, even though he's not had anything before. He's hit all of the "readiness" milestones of sitting, crawling, has two teeth, etc. He's been grabbing for plates and food for a while, too! (But I didn't think that red beans and rice should be his first meal, despite his having a handful of it! )

A question - on the 1st page of this thread, there was a link to a European breastfeeding site that no longer works. Is there an updated link available?

I have helped DD pick up slippery foods, especially when they seem stuck to the plate or tray and all she is managing is to push it around. But I ussually just help her get it to her hand. She needs alot less help now, she has grown so much.

It was a struggle to start solids for me and I think I actually cried a few times. I have a very enthusiastic eater and I really limited her food intake at first because I wasn't really ready, which probably isn't the right thing to do, but I didn't realize I was holding back until a few months later. I never refused her food, but I gave her really tiny amounts, probably less than she was willing/ wanting to eat. She would nurse before hand and after too.

We put it on the spoon and then hand him the spoon. Mostly, it goes in his mouth from there. He really likes having a spoon.

We skipped the spoon with things like applesauce and put a small pile on DD's tray. She picks it up with her fingers and self-feeds. A bit messy, but she has no clue what a spoon is for and if we handed her a spoon with food on it the spoon (and food) would likely end up on the floor.

Us too, DD loves having 2-3 spoons going, she hates giving one up unless she knows she will get one immediatly in return.

Some times she just likes to wave them around too

Now DD takes the spoons and makes attempts at scooping out of the bowl she is pretty succesfull withthe right consistency. We got her a suction bowl to help this endever.

P was sick for her first birthday and didn't want to eat much. Her big brother and I were eating the four-flavored tub of hummus and mini pitas. P pulled the tub over to her and dove into it. Her favorite was the spicy one. I've got some great pictures. Red eyes, drippy nose and a face full of hummus.

I think DD tried wheat products around 8 months. We don't have a history of wheat allergies, so I haven't worried about it. That being said, she really only gets teeny tiny bits of bread here and there.

Giving bread kind of scares me.

It doesn't mush up like sw. pot. or watermelon.

what kind of bread product did you give first?

Huge hunk of organic french bread (he loved the heels) - they just gnaw and gnaw on it, it gets gradually softer, they maybe consume a little of it, but it seems to feel great on teething gums!

We've also given DD bits of French bread. Unfortunately, I've never been able to give her big hunks of anything. Even when she didn't have teeth, she'd bite off huge pieces and either gag on them or get them stuck in her palette.

So, we've always given her tiny pieces that she can pick up with her fingers. So... maybe she didn't really get bread until she was about 9 MO (I said 8 MO before) since that's when her pincer grasp developed.

adrian's had a bit of wheat here and there. a bite of my scone or grilled cheese. at 9 months i've started giving him a bit more. like the hummus on pitas. i'll still give him gluten (& egg) free things if i can find them. like frozen pancakes and waffles, etc.

Hi, I've been lurking here for a week or so, reading with interest because our DD, Neva, is 5 months old and has been showing a real interest in food. She has shown all the signs of readiness including sitting up on her own. We tried to hold her off until she was 6 months. We gave her a bowl and spoon to play with, sat her in her chair etc etc.

Then, the other day I was eating a banana and she lunged at it, managed to get chunk on her hand and took it straight to her mouth...and swallowed!

So, yesterday I figured I would give her some food to play with. I mashed up ( roughly mashed) a bit of avocado and put in on a tray with a spoon. She tried eating with her hands, swallowing little bits just fine, then she figured out the spoon and put the spoon end into her mouth ( I had loaded a little bit on the spoon). She couldn't get enough after that and kept trying to get the mush on the spoon. She actually ate ( swallowed) quite a lot, and really had a blast ( so did we).

DH and I totally agree with CLW - it fits our philosophy. Shovelling spoonfuls of food into a baby's mouth never seemed right to me so I am so glad I found this thread!. However I was too nervous to give her whole, non-mushed avocado because she is only 5 months. But, it went so well, again today that I think I might try some bigger pieces of banana tomorrow. DH's family have a history of allergies so I have to intro one food at a time and thought of spacing a new food a couple of days apart.

I'm so glad I found this thread. Especially because I felt a little wave of sadness when I saw Neva eating. When I read others had felt the same, I felt much better.

I'm sticking around as I learn and experience more!:

I'm trying to remember... Naked Baby started eating around 7.5 months (didn't really swallow anything then). At Thanksgiving (around 8.5 months?) he gnawed on a turkey thigh that had a little meat on it. At one point he got a chunk off, and gagged it back out. It was a little nerve wracking, but I just watched him, and learned that if he doesn't want something in his mouth, he can get it back out just fine thank you! His first french bread heel was, oh, maybe a month later, probably less. We delayed wheat a little just because I don't think gluten is particularly good for us, but we eat so much I wasn't going to deny him it entirely for long. But it was a little stale, and whole, and he wasn't ABLE to get a big chunk off, just gnaw little bits.

There was a short time when between when he was able to bite big chunks off apple slices and when I trusted him to only do that if he meant to, maybe a month, when we didn't give him apple slices, but that was about it for food restrictions due to choking fears.

But every child is different. I do believe that, in general, babies who are offered whole foods from the beginning (not spoonfed mashes or only offered tiny chunks for months first) handle it better, but, again, every child is different. And, every parent is different in what they're OK watching. I was "ok" (again, scared, but able to sit and watch calmly) with Naked Baby gagging on a really big chunk of turkey, and other people might not be, and that's ok. I do think gagging is a good skill to learn, but not at the cost of parental heart attacks, y'know? So everyone has to figure out what they're comfortable with, not just do something because someone else thinks it's a good idea.
