I saw no need to rush food at all this time around.
This was her very first time having solids

Glad to hear BLW is working for you. I had hoped to use that method this time around but it didn't work out for us. DD was ready before 6 months for solids but I didn't want to start that soon. So just after 6 months we did but she did not understand BLW at all and it just frustrated her. She LOVES her homemade purees though. Whenever I have fresh bananas and avocado in the house I still try giving her some in long, thin pieces but she gets mad and tries to grab her spoon. I think it definitely is better for babes who are a little older
