I am really struggling to find things to feed my son. He's so sick of purees but giving him new foods makes me a bit nervous, I don't want to give him something he's not supposed to have. I think I know what's ok and what's not... but I haven't wanted to take any chances. Anyway, now that he's getting older I want to make up a pretty solid menu for him and I need some ideas.<br><br>
he has teeth (his top front two and has 2 bottom comming in) and eats fruits all the time. mostly apples.<br><br>
the only thing hes seemed to have a problem with is yogurt. He's only had it a few times mixed with fruits or cereal, and it seemed to upset his tummy. He was up at night irritated on both occasions but I'm not 100% sure it was the yogurt... I haven't wanted to give it to him again though.<br><br>
so any ideas? what did/do your kids eat at this age?<br><br>
Also, any advice on switching from formula to milk would be appreciated because I'm trying to learn as much as I can about that before we get there...

my dd, almost 10 months, started solids occasionally at 8 months. I started her with table food. I don't puree. I feed her hery small amounts. I follow the Blood Type Diet. She likes green beans, black beans, carrots, apples, blueberries, dry cereal, breads, water, and a few others.<br>
i completely aviod dairy of all sorts until she is a lot older.

i don't agree with children (babies) drinking cow milk. their little systems cannot digest it. I would suggest you do not give your child cow milk at a year old like many doctors suggest.

My 10 month old (to the day) eats everything we eat. We don't puree and never have. I also make sure he gets extra servings of different foods per day. For example DH and I might have a meal of meat, potatoes, and a side salad. For DS I would include small portions of these, plus some kibble (cereal mixed with fruit and whatever else goes well dried) for starters and some fruit for dessert. Or for breakfast we'll have toast with spread, but he will get spread, some more fruit, maybe a few bites of vegetables, a little bit of yogurt, and cheese. That sort of thing. It's not overfeeding him because he only eats a little bite out of everything so the total amount isn't much, but he loves the different tastes and textures. He rarely refuses anything.

We started our 10mo daughter on purees at around six months, as she started showing an interest in "solids" but couldn't quite handle them yet. We now feed her mostly finger foods, but sometimes still purees (mostly because we have a freezer full of stuff we've made that we need to get rid of, and she really likes it).<br><br>
Some of things we give her are (steamed) tofu, sweet potatoes, carrots, avacados, apples, bananas, etc. Pretty much any fruit or vegetable that is or can be made relatively soft and cut up into bite-size chunks is fair game.<br><br>

At 10 months I'd just offer whatever we were eating.<br><br>
Babies don't ever really need purees.<br><br>

My 9 month old just eats little bits of what we eat for the most part. Another thing he loves is the freeze dried corn gerber sells. It really melts away as soon as it hits his mouth.

Yup. I can't imagine going to all that trouble. He's a little person, just feed him little food.
