I just bought all the stuff (at least I think I got it all) to make Jett's food. I know before 1 just for fun but what I don't know is how much at each age should we be feeding them solids. I know if your bfing that should be the main source of food, so how do I know when and how much to give him? I also bought some organic baby oatmeal...

I ordered my ice cube trays and baby spoons! They were delivered on Friday. Jonah has really been staring at us during dinner time. He watches the fork or spoon pick up the food and follows it until we take a bite. He's getting ready, I can tell. What are you going to make and freeze first???

Dillon is fascinated with what we eat. He tries to reach out and take our forks. We started him when he seemed like he was just not getting satisfied with his bottle. He seemed like he was starving all the time and eating a ton. We made hims some cereal after a bath one night and he inhaled it and was just a happy little chunker. We started the jars a few weeks ago as an experiment and he ended up loving it. He takes his food very seriously LOL.

In all honesty, when you feel like experimenting I would say try to give him just a tad and see how he takes it. He will let you know if he is ready or not. It's all about experimenting at this point and I hope you take pictures of his faces during the tryout periods. They will be hilarious!!!!! <3

We started Luyando on just a teaspoon of cereal mixed with breastmilk (and now applesauce because of constipation); she has just progressed to a teaspoon and half. She is not crazy about food in general though so difficult to judge from her. You can start small and see how he does and slowly increase the amount. I am sure he will love it. Enjoy.

Hunter only eats about a teaspon before he gets annoyed and losses interest. My DD was the same way, it took her a while before she ate a good amount. I think a lot of babies are like that, it's almost like practice for them to learn how to move their tongue and what to do with the food in their mouth.

He will let you know when he has had enough. Michael takes a few bites, but when he's done he purses his lips.

I started Meghan with just a tablespoon of prunes last night. She loved it!

My doctor gave me a sheet for as she grows how much to give and of course you can give them a little more if they want it.

we're not ready yet over here, but a rule i did with my oldest son was to feed solids only after a full milk feed, about 30mins later.. as for amounts, well, until he loses interest

This held true even at like 9+ months?
