Starting to give whole milk (he turns one, tomorrow). As he increases the amount of whole milk, I will decrease the amount of BM. He still eats cereal and purees, so I will gradually switch to chunkier foods.

George and Abigail drink whole milk (16-24 ounces a day...usually 24) and eat 3 meals a day. They eat most of what we are eating, just mashed up or cut into smaller pieces. They have tried a little of everything "scary"...eggs, fish, nuts, etc. and seem to be okay with everything! The only reaction we have had was to nutmeg, and that just makes their face red where they get it on their face, so no big deal.

I'm always afraid even though she has 8 teeth (5 up top, 3 on bottom) to give her cheerios without it being in milk long enough to become soggy... When you guys would give some time of cheerios, are they right out of the box? (I know silly question), and if so, do you break it in half to make 2 small pieces or do you just let her munch? Stuff like that worry me, i guess thats why she hasnt gotten much table food, lol... that and she can't feed herself that good yet.

Emma still drinks baby milk and eats tons of purees and cereal. I make as much baby food as I can. The thing with Emma is she really doesnt care for texture. She did nibble on a teeny piece of brownie, But only cause it as sweet I am sure. We are in no rush for regular milk because of the severe allergies with ALL my other children as babies and toddlers.

speaking of allergies, Sonja - The last 2 nights we have given her 2-3oz of milk after the 5-6oz of formula... and she'll wake up SCREAMING until I hold her for about 45mins-2 hours until she's fully asleep. Is this a cause due to up set stomach with the whole milk?

Could be, Christy. I started Luyando on a mixture of wholemilk and breastmilk; now she does just wholemilk. She also will not take it a cup but will take it in her bottle. So, holding on to her bottle for now. She eats a lot of the food we eat which most don't require chewing anyway. She loves beef though; I normally cook oxtail because the meat is softer anyway so she and dd1 love that. She also still takes pureed food and she LOVES yogurt. And, they are old enough to have whole cheerios; Luyando just doesn't like it.

I just give Sean whole Cheerios. Have for months and he has 6 teeth. Never had any problems. The only thing we've avoided is honey and I'm not even going to worry about that anymore since he's 3 weeks away from being 1. Sean had a hard time feeding himself until I started giving him table food at every meal for him to practice.

I thought honey was to be avoided until age 2. I remember that was what I was told with dd1.

So we just learned that Kathy has the ability to pick up food but only if it's large. So like the baby num nums or the finger snacks. So with the food we give her it's too small I guess. My only concern was that she could choke if she took it all on and not bite off what she can do like she does with the num nums. Any thoughts on how to transition without being so nervous ? Lol

Christi I wouldn't feed her any finger foods, let her feed herself. If she can pick it up and eat it, it's fine. If not, maybe she's not ready.

Ruby is on table food 100%. She made that choice loud and clear. I used to worry about food until she found her brothers bowl of cashews and ate like 3 of them before I noticed!! I was mortified but she had a good time. I have given her peanut butter already and she did fine, I'm not really holding anything back at this point aside from straight up milk. It seems very unnatural to me since she can just nurse.

Alexandra goes to her one year appt on 10/21, so I'm sure we'll have the talk about whole milk. She is eating plenty of solids and has even enjoyed organic fish sticks and eggs!

As for Cheerios, we give them to her right out of the box and she
Loves them. She also loves corn, cooked carrots, broccoli and cheese for snacks. I plan on continuing to introduce more "table foods" that we are eating at dinner time.
