How many teeth does he have now? I'm still terrified of giving Jayden solids. I freaked out this afternoon after giving him steamed carrots, peas, and greenbeans. They were all soft and cut into small bites, but I couldn't let him do it. I am so afraid. I need someone to knock me on the head and tell me to grow up and let him eat! I have never even attempted to give him apples for this choking fear of mine... I'm such a wimp lol.
I serve it as sauce I usually cut up fruit for him, he eats most everything as well and he only has 4 teeth. however, apple is just so hard you know, it's not something he can mash down as easily so I've never cubed it yet. Peaches, pears, mangos, bananas those things are softer and he can easily eat them, but not apples yet
Anna doesn't really eat diced up fruit, so I give her applesauce instead. I used to try to give it to her diced though, with the peel cut off. She has enough teeth, I would be afraid of the same thing, so I couldn't give her the whole piece of apple to bite off herself.

wow. i just peel the apple and give the whole thing to Braden to eat. he has 7 teeth now and i am never far from him so i don't worry to much. plus he only take small bites so i have never worried to much. maybe i should have started out smaller, but he is an ace at it now
I'll usually peel half and hold it for her while she takes bites. She eats however much she likes and I eat the rest (thats not yucky right? ) But we don't buy apples from the store, we have apple trees in our backyard and they yield apples with pretty soft flesh. They aren't mushy or anything, but they aren't really "crunchy" and hard like you get from the store, and she can mash them up really well. We also peel and dice into small pieces and let her feed herself. Ava loves them.
