I tend to give puree first. Then about 7mths a good mash so it's a little chunky by the time all the veg, etc is in there. They start on finger foods from 8mths and progress onto family meals and bread from around the 9/10mth mark - depending on what the meal is and the development of the child of course.
Hello all, I just got back from my appointment with a health nurse. She advised me to give food first and then milk...confusing I know and at 7 months no more purée and to put food on tray. My girl is not interested in pasta or chicken. But loves spinach and rice.
Okay cool cause I've just been giving him purred food cause I wasn't sure if he was old enough to eat chunky foods
From 6 months you can skip purées and go straight to finger foods - have a look into Baby Led Weaning , my DS never had purée food
Ds didn't have purée for long, we then moved on to mashed foods and finger foods such as toast. I think it's best to offer a mixture of textures.
We did breakfast lunch and dinner from the start. X
Ladies who are giving cereal/porridge are you giving with cows milk, formula or ebm
