Re: BLW or purees?
Unless there is a medical reason, I see no reason to go all one way or another if you are unsure. I started letting my nearly 7 mo play with stripes of food this week & he loves it, but gets frustrated when they get lost. He's not excited about me putting things into his mouth, so purees are tough too. I'll just keep offering both until one or the other works out well for us.
I will say that, to me, purees are so much more work and mess- so I really woudn't be sad if he skipped them!
