    Are you talking about not being able to make baby food or not sure what to feed her? At this age you can just feed her what you eat ; just less spicy n salty. Children her age are able to finger feed soft, mushy foods. You can check out baby led weening.

    Oops sorry that was child led weaning. You can feed her but this gives her a chance to try feeding herself; it’ll be messy but she will work on many skills and slowly improve feeding herself.

    My daughter started hating to be fed at that age too. She wanted soft finger foods and she wanted to feed herself. By 10.5-11 months she flat out refused to eat anything I tried feeding her myself and only wanted to use her own hands to eat. Try things like making a beef or chicken stew and feeding her soft carrots and potatoes and overcooked celery. And shredded meats. Also blueberries and soft fruits, peas, etc.

    She doesn’t really have a problem with me feeding it to her she just has a problem with what I am feeding her she likes the teether snacks the Chito puffs for babies little finger foods like that but if I give her human food then she eats it but I was just wondering what kinds of foods and how I should prepare it so it is safe for her to eat

    You can pretty much give her anything (depends on her teeth too). Avocado, banana, grilled cheese, eggs, cooked carrots. Anything you cook or eat yourself just chop it smaller or more fine or cook it longer so it’s soft for her. Pinterest is good for ideas. Make sure you season the food so it has a bit of flavor and won’t seem so bland (salt, pepper, etc).

    We started feeding our baby at 4 months. She is 7 months now and eats finger foods like cooked chicken, salmon, mini peanut butter sandwiches, roasted broccoli etc. she has two teeth. She also eats a little bit of baby food from a jar. I highly recommend just feeding your baby what you eat(minus spicy and no honey!) so she smells the cooking and then associates that with eating. Spices are fine. My doctor said mostly meat and vegetables with fruit then very little carbs. Examples: Breakfast: oatmeal with peanut butter and peaches, Lunch: Bahn mi salmon burger with brioche, pickle and sweet potato. Dinner: pan fried lemon chicken, roasted broccoli and garlic bread. She loves all the fresh cut fruits too!
