    In the next few weeks...9:15pm bottle will go, will add beef and pasta to dinner mix, will start up a breakfast meal as well so there will be three meals a day.

    Forgot to add - I usually start first food after the morning tea bottle.
    That's a really good routine! With the pasta and beef do you purée or give little chunks.. I want to give him not just purred food but I'm scared he'll choke ?

    12 - vegies

    3 - bottle

    6.30 - 7 bottle


    We had introduced another solids meal at the last bottle about 6 1/2 months. Bub is given as much as he wants, always after the bottle.
    Do you give all purred food or little bits of veggies, if so when did you start ?

    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.

    Oh snap, that's almost identical to us! We haven't followed any specific book-prescribed routine or anything, we're just winging it
    So thanks, this is reassuring!

    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.

    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.
