We went with baby led weening (BLW) with our first, and it was pretty successful. We started sharing steamed veggies and fruit at about 6 months. They mostly end up all over the floor and table. The saying is: food before one, is just for fun. They aren't getting their primary nutrition from the food, it's still all coming from the nursing so it's just about exploring textures and tastes, improving pincer grip and utensils... It helps to make them less fussy eaters later. Try teaching her how to dip. Use the puree as dip for steamed veggies like peppers or sweet potatoes. When our son learned to dip it's all he wanted to do. Any time we wanted him to try something it was either a "New dip!" Or something new to dip in his favorite dip.
