but I know for me, it's mostly about letting DD be in control (somewhat) of eating solids just like she's been in control of eating breastmilk.
I really love this a lot more than spoon feeding! I feel good knowing that DD is choosing how much to eat, and it's so much more fun to watch her feed herself than to try to get her to take a spoon.
By that point he could eat soft chunks of things like banana or steamed veggies. We never messed with purees.
I just didn't see the point in shoveling mush into his mouth when he didn't want it, didn't need it and might be harmed by it (look into the whole open gut/closed gut thing). Now that he's old enough, he loves eating and trying new foods.

But by the time a piece of steamed vegetable gets to the gut it's not that dissimilar a texture to a puree, would it affect the gut in the same way, if not be harder on it if it's not well chewed?
