Re: I succombed to using jarred baby food...kinda LONG...
I am breastfeeding our third, almost 9 mos. Sometimes I just get plain ol' lazy and don't bother making her any solids. (If I do the magic bullet is a godsend - just throw a bit of what we're eating into it and voila - baby food).
Something that all three of my kids liked was to eat the bones from ribs. If you leave a little bit of meat on them they just suck and gnaw on it. Great for teething too.
