BLW what foods next

We're doing a blend of purees - but starting to get into table foods/BLW. My DD is 8 months and has one bottom tooth and is still working on her pincher grasp.

I have given her tons of purees and she loves them all. I'm stumped on how to transition in to more table foods. I have given her mushy chunks of sweet potatoes, carrots, banana, avocados and peas. She likes cheerios and little bites of pasta.

What else can I give her in chunks instead of purees? What do you do on days that your dinner is not really baby friendly? Can I give her foods that have small amounts of dairy in them (cheese sauce on pasta, etc)?

Well, If your family doesn't have a history of allergies - you can give her anything.

The only rule you really need to keep in mind is no honey before they're 1.

If you feel that your meal isn't baby friendly (pizza? Whatever), then you can always make them their own. It really doesn't matter what as food under the age of 1 is just for fun. They are not needing the nutrients from it - you just want to avoid junk.

Cooked eggs, yes. Most definitely. Scrambled eggs were one of my daughter's first foods

That was an awesome article, thanks for sharing. She's having scrambled eggs with me in the morning!

I like the part about if we cannot feed our baby what we are eating on a regular basis, then maybe it is time to reconsider our whole family diet.

Re: BLW what foods next

My son (8 months today!) loves lentil soup - I don't follow a recipe per se but 1.5 cup lentils, carrots, zucchini, celery, onion, parsley (or any other vegetables you have), 4 cups broth (chicken or vegetable, I make my own so it is less salty) or water. Saute veg first in olive oil, add lentils, broth, cook until done. Salt and pepper to taste. Serves lots (you will have lots leftover if cooking for just two adults and a baby)

I do put his portion of soup in a blender to mash it up a bit, but its still lumpy and he just loves it.
