My little DD has no teeth yet, but absolutely loves some toast fingers, mini rice cakes and arrowroot biscuits. What other foods could I give her, that she can feed herself with? Keeping in mind that she has NO teeth.

Depends if you are looking for simple foods or cooked recipes? I gave my DS things like broccoli and cheese muffins and zucchini slice. They are soft and easy to gum. Fruits and steamed veg are great too.

My little guy was eating almost anything at that age with no teeth. He even gave corn on the cob a good go! He'd almost demolish one, just with his strong little gums! Give lots of things a go, you might be surprised what she can eat.
Brocolli is good, pumpkin, potato or sweet potato either mashed or cut into a chip style shape and cooked, grated apple or carrot, strawberries, graped cut into 3rds, slices of ham, cheese sticks

I was amazed at what dd could eat with no teeth! She was really keen on strips of beef, chicken and lamb cutlet bones. She used to suck the juices out of it and gum small pieces of meat off. I also used to give her steamed vegetable fingers, roast veg, pasta and boiled eggs. She's 9 months now and only has two teeth but she pretty much eats whatever we're having except for spicy things, whole nuts and honey.

As with PP, my gummy sharks ate anything and everything! I did BLW with two out of my three and their first foods (while being without a single tooth!) were:
*Thick cut cucumber sticks with the skin left on either dipped in natural Greek yogurt or hummus.
*Roast carrots, sweet potato and pumpkin cut into thick chip shapes.
*Lamb cutlets, beef strips, fish (just flaked and put on the highchair tray)
*Eggs - scrambled with baby spinach, peas and corn or soft boiled with toast dippers
*Corn on the cob, steamed veg - broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus etc...

As a general rule, I give anything that I can squish between 2 fingers (including things like breadsticks that soften when wet). Lots of fruits and vegetables, pasta, beans, cheese, tofu, bread, eggs. My almost 10 month old has no teeth yet either and loves feeding himself!
