    I thought you are only supposed to give eggs from 12 months? I'd check with your health nurse maybe?

    I was told by a health professional recently that the guidelines are changing and that it's ok to introduce things like that earlier unless there is a family history of allergies.

    But of course it's best to check with someone beforehand if you're concerned.

    My DD loved watermelon wedges that she could feed herself from about 6 months

    We did try purees for a while but DS pretty much refused to eat them so now he eats all finger foods except for yoghurt. These are some of the things I give him:

    Panfried chicken strips and cut up veg
    All kinds of fruit and veg
    Muffins
    Mini quiches
    Little burgers of poached chicken or tinned salmon with mashed potato and vegies, crumbed and baked.
    Today I am making him burgers out of rice, cannellini beans and veggies and will crumb them
    Pancakes with veg in them
    Pita bread and toast - with avocado, peanut butter, hummus, cheese, tahini, yoghurt
    Sandwiches/toasted sandwiches
    Stirfry - I make it without any salty sauces and just tip rice on his highchair tray (we use Japanese rice so it's sticky), then give him the meat and veg to eat. Rice dishes we eat outside.
    Big bits of pasta, cubes of cheese and tomato
    Omelettes, frittatas, etc
    Rice cakes
    Rice puffs
    Sultanas and prunes
    Raisin toast

    His eating has improved out of sight since I stopped cooking him baby food and let him feed himself. He's just a stubborn bugger.

    Do I need to wait for most of his teeth to come through before giving him the rusks? His bottom teeth have just come through.
    Should his food be just a little chunky? I'm so freaking confused!

    Rusks are good! Helps with the teeth!
    I give Braxton smooth fruit purée for lunch and veggies slightly mushier than mashed potato for dinner. Plus I made heaps of meatballs from mince and chicken (nothing else) then froze them, and I just defrost and mix in one with his dinner.
    I also let him chew on bread, watermelon, mango etc. if we are having some but always a big bit so that he can hold it himself.

    As far as what they can eat it is almost everything, just not nuts or dairy.
    We've tried:
    Broccoli
    Leek
    Mushroom
    Onion
    Rice
    Sweet potato
    Potato
    Carrot
    Pear
    Apple
    Apricot
    Mango
    Watermelon
    Avocado
    Peach
    Banana (a good one to chew on too)
    Zucchini
    Capsicum
    Spinach
    Corn
    Peas
    Cauliflower
    Strawberries
    Beans
    Rockmellon
    Porridge
    Plus I have added coconut milk to his dinners and he lives it!
    I swear he eats better than us hahaha
