    Probably about once a day. We did blw so ds never got bloated from solids.

    Eta: two meals a day at 7 months (lunch & dinner) and went to three meals a day at 8 months. By 10 months I starting adding in snacks here and there.

    We're doing lunch and dinner with dd who's 6 months. She doesn't eat huge amounts though and is mostly just having fun with food at this point. :-)

    My 7 and a half month old DD usually has half a WeetBix, and some kids yoghurt, for breakfast, and at the moment I just use water on the WeetBix; just enough to soften it.

    Always been told to give food first... I wouldn't say no more puree but it wouldn't be the only/first thing I'd offer at 7 months.

    With toast or even better I found were rice cakes ( 100% brown rice) I put avocado or cottage cheese or almond butter or any nut butter ( just make sure it's 100% nuts )

    It's normal to be super nervous about feeding my DS chunky food I'm scared he'll choke.. He's got his 2 bottom teeth does that help at all?

    Default Solids...How many times a day?? For a 6 month old

    It's normal to be nervous and in reality they don't need teeth to eat soft foods, teeth are for biting , if you give appropriate food like rice cakes or soft fruits and veggies and meats they can "gum" the food (which also helps with their teething as biting down on food helps cut their gums and lets their teeth through!)

    Rice cakes are great as they are just puffed rice and the babies gum/suck them and little pieces of soft rice break off , just try relax and be encouraging and eat the food so they can copy you - I've had friends freaking out anytime their babies put a piece of food in their mouths and all it does it makes the baby confused and nervous about eating!

    Look up some baby led weaning you tube videos and watch how clever they are - babies bodies are designed to eat real whole food once they are ready ( usually 6 months ) and their instincts kick in very quickly once they get the idea !
