10.5 month old DS is exclusively breastfed, but is now ready for solids.<br><br>
What should I start him off with? Is it OK to introduce all different foods, or should it be only one at a time?<br><br>
So far, I've thought of: bananas, avocados, steamed broccolli, tofu, sweet potatoes, whole wheat grain bread....can you help me think of more? Are there any foods that I absolutely <i>shouldn't</i> give him at this age?<br><br>
Thanks for any help. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I think it's wholesomebabyfood.com rather than foods. Try that. As far as first foods we did avocado, banana, sweet potato, tofu, edamame, diced fruit (peaches, pears, plums), green beans, cottage cheese, squash (acorn, butternut, and summer), beans (lentils, black beans, and garbonzo are the favorites).

I think it's best to try foods one at a time. If you do more, keep track of what they were so you can identify any allergens. I think you're supposed to avoid egg whites, some dairy (yogurt's probably okay), peanut butter, and anything that is a common allergen. Do you have <span style="text-decoration:underline;">The Baby Book</span>? It has a list of foods that are common allergens.<br><br>
I don't actually know if it's okay or not, but I would be careful tofu. A lot of people are allergic to soy. At that age, you're probably okay. Definitely start with a small amount.<br><br>
M ds used to love scrambled egg yolks. Again, start with just a little. He also liked chunks of sweet potato, although he hates it now.

I started off with whatever the family was eating for dinner. 6 months, child sitting at the table with us, eating whatever we ate. I didn't "un spice" anything, didn't limit anything - so easy, didn't have to think about anything, didn't have to "prepare" anything. It's amazing what a 6 month old can gnaw!
