My daughter is 9 months, she don't have any teeth yet but has been eating Gerber baby food for about 4 months now. I want to start giving her more solid type of food and not just puree but I am nervous. Can anyone give me some recommendations on how to start giving her more solid foods? Thank you in advance for any advice.
My daughter has always been breast fed. She would sleep long periods through the night up until 2 or 3 months ago. Now she wakes up to feed every 2 hours most nights. Sometimes it’s only an hour between feedings...sometimes she’ll make it 4 or 5 hours before needing to feed again. She eats some solids...she’s not a huge fan of much other than her cereal. We try to make sure she eats that before... More
When baby sleeps/naps through a feed which takes precedence? The formula or the solids? We are just over 9 mo and I’m getting confused what to give her...our doctor (Kaiser) does not have a checkup between 6 and 12 months if your baby has been on track, gaining steadily, and meeting milestones. I hate to bother the doctor (and wait the requisite 48 hour turnaround time) with a question I’m s... More
Hi parents, hoping to get some advice for my 1 year old. He refused the bottle starting at around 9 mos and will only take the breast. At daycare, he’s moved to solids and takes milk/water occasionally by spoon. Recently, when he’s home and not at daycare, he only eats a few bites before screaming to get out of the chair. I tried feeding him in multiple places thinking it might be the high cha... More
How do you get over the fear of she chocking or gagging? I know if you hear noise that’s a good sign because her airway isn’t blocked but my husband freaks out which in turn makes me freak out. I’m also afraid that she will shove the whole thing in her mouth if I give her slice of something cut big enough for her to hold onto or that she might be able to break off a good size piece of food.
My daughter is 8 and a half months and loves eggs. She also seems really interested in what me and hubby eat and sometimes doesn't want to eat the pureed baby food and will stare intently at our plates. What kind of finger foods do you suggest for an 8 month old? She has 2 bottom teeth and the 2 tops are working there way in. She also likes puffs and Cheerios.
My LO has been eating baby food for the last month or so and is starting to eat more now (2-3oz per meal) I usually give it to her in between her bottle feedings. So she’ll has a bottle at 7, baby food at 9 and a bottle at 11. She’ll have baby food 2-3 times a day. And this has been working for us very well. However, I am wondering if I should start giving her the baby food directly after the ... More
My son is 8 months old he will be 9 months on the 27... he has two bottom teeth and one incoming top tooth He HATES baby food and wants real people food. What are some options for food? Friends say to give him Cheerios but he’s just not old enough to me to have them yet. I do give him stuff that we eat like little pieces of ground beef mashed potatoes bananas.

He is breast fed but I feel like (I bet any mom feels) that he Is not getting enough. ALSO! What do I do with the purées I’ve bought that he won’t eat?? ive tried many times and he still ... More
My LO is 8.5 months and I can barely get her to have 21 oz of formula during the day. Sometimes I can get more in her if I add it to her puree, but she mostly eats finger foods so that may only add an ounce for the day. She isn't waking at night and seems happy/not hungry during the day. I know everything says I should try to get her to eat 28-32 oz until age 1, but could she be self-weanin... More
My LO started baby food at 6 months and is now 7 months. I’d really like to start giving her solids but I’m very scared. Her first tooth just broke through a couple days ago. Should I hold off on solids? If not, what’s do you recommend and how big should the pieces be (size of her pinky nail)? Ughh first time mom 😫
Hi, I know a lot of moms stop BF after first birthday. But me and my baby are not ready to give that up. Was wondering if there are moms out there who continue to BF beyond 1st bday. Was/is your baby eating a lot of solid food? Because my is not a big eater she still mostly relies on boobie.
How can I get my son to pick up his food and actually put it into his mouth??? He’ll do it with a spoon, and I know he’s capable of eating things that can be grasped (I’ve given him hard boiled egg, small pieces of pasta, banana, boiled veggies, typical BLW things) but they only make it to his mouth because I eventually feed them to him. Should I get the baby puffs since they’re accommodating t... More
